2 Nov 2022 How to say “Bon Appetit!” in five different languages! November may mark the beginning of the end of the year when you’re looking forward to winding things up at work, but it is a thrilling month for new beginnings at the V&A Waterfront! Our ever-growing repertoire of tenants is seeing five new additions, all of them foodie spots. From delectable Indian fare, Chinese tea and a Japanese izakaya (informal bar serving drinks and snacks), to a traditional French bakery and Xhosa-inspired restaurant, these new eateries are bringing flavours from every corner of the world into everyone’s favourite neighbourhood. Here’s more about the new spots: Paul’s Bakery The internationally beloved chain of French bakery-café restaurants is finally joining the V&A Waterfront neighbourhood! Located in the Victoria Wharf Shopping Centre, Paul’s Bakery will be serving up their speciality French products including breads, croissants, crêpes, sandwiches, cakes and other pastries, as well as hot and cold beverages. Raj Indian Restaurant Indian food at its best lands at the V&A Waterfront! Raj Indian Restaurant, a well-known national franchise of North Indian eateries, can now be found at the V&A’s own Victoria Wharf Shopping Centre. Curry fanatics will enjoy their variety of bhuna, tikka masala, vindaloo and korma culinary styles, as well as a few Southern Indian-style additions. TANG Asian Luxury Restaurant & Bar If you’ve ever been to TANG Asian Luxury Restaurant & Bar in Nelson Mandela Square at Sandton City in Joburg, then you will almost certainly be looking forward to the official Cape Town arrival of this restaurant. Joining the Victoria Wharf Shopping Centre, TANG is a luxurious, sensory dining experience inspired by contemporary Japanese izakayas and classic Cantonese cuisine. Royal Tea Royal Tea is a Cape Town-based tea bar that brings contemporary Chinese tea-drinking culture to South Africa. The quirky tea bar was a staple feature in the V&A Food Market for many years, serving up classic bubbles, fresh fruit teas and oolong-based cheese teas in a number of flavours. Royal Tea will now be occupying a permanent space inside the Victoria Wharf Shopping Centre. Seven Colours Eatery Another former V&A Food Market vendor, Seven Colours Eatery will be opening a new space at Battery Park. Seven Colours Eatery, owned by Eastern Cape-born chef Nolu Dube-Cele, is an eatery inspired by the traditional “seven colour” plates of nutrient-rich, strikingly hued food found in Xhosa cuisine. The hearty dishes at Seven Colours Eatery include tshisanyama (braaied meat), amagwinya (vetkoek), umngqusho (samp with sugar beans), umfino (maize meal with chopped spinach, cabbage and potatoes) and amazimba (sorghum). Together with the diverse range of existing eateries and retail spaces at the V&A Waterfront, these five new restaurants in Cape Town give you all the more reason to come and visit!
