The 2nd Street Food Festival
Capetown and Johannesburg
f there is one thing that unites South Africans- it has to be FOOD. Our rich diversity has given birth to a food lover’s paradise. Street food is defined by most as ‘food that is cooked and sold by a vendor, in a public area’ but we KNOW there’s more to it than that. In celebration of our rich culinary history; ranging from bunny chow to boerewors n chackalacka- the lovely people over at Studio-H present the second Street Food Festival. On the 1st of August, the Street Food Festival will be making its highly anticipated debut in Johannesburg at the Hazard Gallery in the Maboneng Precinct.
In addition to the wide variety of tasty food, there will be an opportunity for entrepreneurs to learn from established people in the food and beverage industry.
