As soon as you've booked your flight to Cape Town, you'll also want to book your dinner reservations at The Test Kitchen. The restaurant was name on the "World’s 50 Best Restaurants" list in early 2015, making it one of the most popular restaurants in the Cape Town, if not on the continent. Located within the Old Biscuit Mill in Woodstock, the restaurant's decor reflects the neighborhood’s reputation as a hub for Cape Town creatives. As you enter, you'll notice Chef Luke Dale Roberts and his team moving around inside the open air kitchen like a colony of ants. What appears to be chaos at first is actually incredibly organized and intentional, as everyone works their hardest to deliver an unforgettable dining experience.
At The Test Kitchen, diners can expect to taste a fusion of French, Asian and South African style foods, with notable dishes including the TK Springbok with chestnuts, liver, beetroot and cocoa nib, as well as, “Squid Ink Chawanmushi” with a salt aged scallop and foie gras dashi. For lunch, choose between a five-course or a la carte menu. For dinner, choose between a five or six course tasting menu. South African wines accompany each.
