Good fresh food

The food is something different. I had the corn-balls with a tomato sauce and some veggies. It tasted good, we might go back :)

Pros: Fresh food, Healthy

Something different to try, pap balls are not something I've seen before.

They upsell a really thick sticky sauce after you order and then put loads on. I'd probably not have that again but the lentil curry was nice.

Pros: Printed vegan menu on the counter with pictures

Cons: Up selling a thick sweet sauce, way too much

tasty local food

Never had the food before that is served at Afrika bites. All very clearly labelled and people in S.Africa just get it about what is vegan and what isn't. Tasty snack style food so you can try different things.

Also this is in a food market and loads of other stalls that also serve vegan food. So wander around and enjoy.
