Eat Like an Obama at KitchenThe 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?

Living in New York, we've developed a love and loyalty to the bustling neighborhood eateries that locals frequent. Southeast of downtown in the Woodstock community, we found exactly that in the Kitchen and sat down to enjoy our final Cape Town meal. The eccentric gallery and authenticity of a catering company that outgrew the owner, Karen Dudley's kitchen set the perfect scene to relish our last moments with a deliciously hearty meal and a feels-like-home ambiance. Taking a breath after finishing our breakfast, we noticed a photo reigning in the reality of our imminent departure - First Lady, Michelle Obama in the Kitchen posing with its staff.
