As soon as you've booked your flight to Cape Town, you'll also want to book your lunch or dinner reservations at The Test Kitchen. The restaurant was named on the ""World’s 50 Best Restaurants"" list in 2015 and 2016, making it one of the most popular restaurants in South Africa. 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 slow cooked pork belly with wood roasted sweet potato, smoked chestnut, and orange 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.
