Pink Waffle Cabin

Another regular at markets and events is Pink Waffle Cabin, with its adorable bubblegum-pink food truck. Find it at the Deep Roots Night Market and Hazel Food Market, as well as festivals and events all around Gauteng. Real Belgian waffles are the star and come topped with your choice of ice cream, cream or candy bars (think Crunchie or Bar One). If you’re looking for a more mobile option, try one of the waffles on a stick.

TacoKombi is a regular at all kinds of markets and festivals around Pretoria. They mostly trade at the Hazel Food Market on Saturdays, but often do private and corporate functions. You should definitely go for their tacos, which can be made with beef or chicken and are served with avo, salsa, jalapeños, lettuce, cheese and sour-cream mayo. The nachos are pretty awesome, too.
