The Obamas were in Cape Town on a whirlwind 24-hour trip whose highlight was a major speech by POTUS at University of Cape Town. But on a previous visit to Cape Town in 2011, Michelle made quite an impression at a local eatery in the Woodstock neighborhood called The Kitchen. It's easy to see why she—or her staffers—chose this tiny, homey spot aesthetically cluttered with an array of retro knickknacks. FLOTUS is known for championing a healthy lifestyle, and owner Karen Dudley's Kitchen is no different—the ingredients are fresh and seasonal, and her sandwiches and salads promise to deliver wholesome goodness to your taste buds.
I went for a vegetarian version of the adorably named Love Sandwich, filled with avocado, pesto, tomato, onions, and more. It was delicious, but I must admit I also thoroughly enjoyed the divine brownie at the end. Who says a healthy meal can't end with a sugary treat?
