Afro-Caribbean cuisine lands in the Mother City

Inspired by her childhood in St. Lucia, an island country in the West Indies, supermodel Mala Bryan has opened a new Afro-Caribbean restaurant in Cape Town. The Kwéyòl Restaurant and Bar is situated at the Botanik Social House, on Queen Victoria Street opposite the Company Gardens.

The Caribbean cuisine menu includes traditional side dishes such as Island Girl’s rice & beans and mains such as stewed oxtail and curried goat. Vegans and vegetarians are also in luck—the menu includes meals made from soya as well as curried chickpeas, to name a few. The sounds of reggae and calypso music accompanies diners as they indulge in signature tropical cocktails and virgin fruit punches at the bar.

Stewed soya chucks. Yup another meatless main. Wonderful childhood memories of my Rastafarian uncle making this. This here was my first attempt at cooking it and got thumbs up from my tasters. I will try different spices with it but this one was delish! #vegan #vegetarian #caribbeanfood #kweyolcapetown #capetown #southafrica
