CAPE TOWN ON FIRE

SAVEUR - - Season To Taste -

1THE BUTCHER With three lo­ca­tions through­out Cape Town, Frankie Fen­ner Meat Mer­chants butch­ers whole, eth­i­cally raised an­i­mals. Stop by the Wood­stock lo­ca­tion for their fa­mous braaibrood­jie, a local vari­a­tion on grilled cheese. ffmm.co.za

2THE RES­TAU­RANT Ash, run by chef Ash Heeger, is the re­cip­i­ent of Frankie Fen­ner’s un­used cuts, in­clud­ing pig heads. There, in the spirit of South African braai, al­most ev­ery­thing is cooked over open flames. ashrestau­rant.co.za

3THE BRAAI SPOT Tucked along the coast of Table Moun­tain Na­tional Park, Oudekraal Beach is on a small bay be­neath a jumble of boul­ders. A hand­ful of braai sites with chunky stone grills are scat­tered along the beach, per­fectly po­si­tioned for you to watch the waves while flip­ping boerewors. Gauge the wind be­fore you go be­cause Cape Town is no­to­ri­ous for its gusty weather.

4THE GUEST­HOUSE Run by two hos­pitable expats from France, the peace­ful six-room La Grena­dine feels like a tiny slice of the French coun­try­side and is sit­u­ated near Kloof Street, one of the liveliest blocks in Cape Town. Happy perk: Upon ar­rival, you’ll be greeted with crisp, crumbly, home­made but­ter cook­ies. la­grena­dine.co.za
