Cape Malay snacks in Bo Kaap

Cape Malay snacks in Bo Kaap, with Faldela Tolker, Cooking with Love

Historical Bo Kaap can be a great place to pause, interact with some residents and get a flavour of Cape Malay cuisine.  If you don’t have time (2.5 hours) for the full Cape Malay cooking experience, you can opt for Cape Malay snacks.

Samosa folding

Local residents open up their homes throughout the day and show us the fine art of samosa folding (with a variety of fillings), and you get the opportunity to interact with their families.

Samosas and Chilli Bites

After you have prepared your samosas they are deep fried immediately, along with some chilli bites and for dessert, some koeksisters.  Once you have tasted samosas freshly fried you will find that this is the only way to enjoy them.

Koeksisters

Koeksisters are like a spicy doughnut and enjoyed in the Cape Malay culture for a dessert or on a Sunday morning breakfast

Cape Malay snacks

This experience can be enjoyed by two people or a group and a great way to take a pause on a city walk.

Bo Kaap street

The whole experience takes around 45 minutes, and afterwards we take a walk down the hill, enjoy this cultural heritage area of Bo Kaap and learn about the history of Muslims in South Africa.
