Gauteng Taste of Africa at the Soweto Wine & Lifestyle Festival

Gauteng Tourism is bringing the Gauteng Taste of Africa Experience to the 10th TOPS at SPAR Soweto Wine & Lifestyle Festival.

The Taste of Africa Theatre Experience will feature the tastiest cuisine from Soweto and the Maboneng Precinct’s distinctly-African restaurants, including House of Baobab, The Blackanese, Kahawa Club, Roots Restaurant and Lapa La Rona, while the sounds of Africa are set to ignite the theatre space with performances by Senagalese and Congolese musicians.

 
 
House of Baobab

Located in the heart of the Maboneng Precinct, House of Baobab creates an authentically African dining experience and specialises in traditional food and drink from Pan-African countries. The restaurant is fast making a name for itself nationwide, with recent diners including US scholar, activist and author Angela Davis; actress Zikhona Sodlaka, best known for her role as Prisca in Generations; and South Africaís Minister of Tourism, Derik Hanekom.

The Blackanese

The Blackanese is one of Mabonengís most talked about new restaurants serving Japanese cuisine with a delicious African twist. The passion that chef and owner, Vusi Kunene, has for Asian and African flavours is infused in every Blackanese dish, from the biltong California rolls to the Prawn Braai every Sunday. Best known as the Mr Sushi of Joburg, Kuneneís sushi-making business first started from a mobile food truck, which became so popular that he soon had to find more permanent residence, hence Blackanese was born.

The coffee shop also promotes African literature, with an interesting selection of fiction and non-fiction on hand, and is the meeting point for all of Maboneng Precinctís African creatives.
