Food trucks to follow in the Cape winelands and Garden Route

With sprawling vineyards and stunning views, the winelands is the perfect place to park off and dish up some delicious foods. Perhaps its only competition is the unmissable Garden Route. We’ve rounded up both area’s fantastic food trucks.

Winelands

Here it’s all about craft beer, craft beer and more craft beer, with a range of local brews on offer. The 1975 classic Kombi can be found at various markets and festivals around the winelands, or at its home on Laborie Wine Estate, where tasty tapas is also available.

Garden Route

Wunder-Bar

You can follow them on Facebook.
Serving traditional German sausages as well as a signature spicy curry wurst, this truck can be found at the Friday Night Market at Narnia Village, Knysna, from 4pm to 8pm, and Mosaic Market in Sedgefield from 8am to 2pm on Saturdays.

Greg’s Cookin

Follow them on Facebook.
This seven-metre-long caravan-turned-food truck can be found in Plettenberg Bay in the summer. Their food truck is fully sustainable and they use fresh ingredients to serve gourmet lunches, dinners and picnic baskets. Expect options like pulled pork or roast beef tapenade sandwiches, bacon and eggs on sourdough and brisket flatbreads. They also do drinks like homemade lemonade and iced tea and desserts of brownies and healthy chocolate fondants.

Lime Life

Follow them on Facebook.
These healthy food advocates are busy. They’ve branched out from just being a food truck to include catering and a deli called Brunch. However, at the food truck you can still expect old favourites like breakfast in a cup, a banting Asian green salad and toasted sandwiches. Also nab a gluten-free chocolate brownie.
