A menu shift to more plants has only amped up the sense of exploration.

Africola is rock ‘n’ roll. The eclectic interior, once dominated by vibrant blues, greens and yellows but now filled with more muted tones, plays host to a rollicking roll call of local chefs, visiting celebrities and impossibly cool youngsters nursing cocktails. The cool continues outside, shrouded in greenery. A few years ago, Africola shifted the hero ingredients more to the plant side of the scale, which has only amped up the sense of exploration. There’s much at Africola that few will have seen before – their motto declaring: “Bringing our skills van die plaas centre stage, keeping our mantra, Bokkies, braai, dop and chop” – but nothing that will leave you bewildered. Because even if the staff weren’t there to deftly steer you through the menu and the adventurous wine list, you can be confident that there won’t be a single wrong note. Rock on.
