The townships in the Cape Flats are where the majority of the population was forcibly moved during Apartheid. This region has a distinct culture and learning about that history is a must while you’re here. The best way to do that is through the seven-course lunch at 4Roomed Ekasi Culture. You’ll learn about Xhosa (the predominant African culture in the Western Cape) traditions through the $15 tasting menu with dishes like pap, a common starch, served here with butternut, nutmeg, and truffle oil. One of the best parts is chatting up the staff, so make sure to ask tons of questions. Start your day here with a big group lunch before heading to Rands for an afternoon of dancing.
