After The Shortmarket Club a few days prior I had the opportunity to have dinner at another one of Luke Dale-Roberts’ restaurants. Unfortunately his main spot, Test Kitchen, was closed during my time in Cape Town, otherwise I would have tried to get a spot at lunch or something.

Anyway, The Potluck Club was great and definitely lived up to the hype and my resulting expectations. The food is simply outstanding, every single dish was top notch. Especially the fish tacos were amazing. I could easily see myself eat a whole afternoon’s worth of them without getting full. If you’re ever in Cape Town, make sure to go to both restaurants, it’s still fairly easy to get reservations there!

I’ve recently gotten inspired to go on more hikes and explore. A rewarding investment so far and one that I’m looking forward to expanding soon, with Canada’s beauty on the horizon.

So being in Cape Town for WordCamp, how could I pass up the opportunity to trek up Table Mountain? After taking me to Lion’s Head a few days earlier, Job Thomas was again so nice to take time out of his schedule to show me around, this time even along with his wife Kim, and it was definitely a memorable half day.

Just after sunrise on my second day in Cape Town, Job Thomas picked me up at my hotel and took me to hike up Lion’s Head, one of the more popular hikes around. It didn’t rain which was good, it was however a little cloudy and foggy. It was a great start into the day and an even better introduction to Cape Town. Thank you Job!

My first evening in Cape Town included a visit to The Shortmarket Club, one of the three restaurants of The Test Kitchen’s Luke Dale-Roberts. It just opened two months prior and certainly lived up to the hype!

Not only did I get upgraded to Business Class on my trip from Frankfurt to Johannesburg, it got also assigned Lufthansa’s latest Siegerflieger! It’s the aircraft they scheduled to carry Germany’s Olympic athletes back home from Brazil.
