We all know that the South African economy is currently not at its best state. This might lead you into thinking you can’t spoil and treat yourself to amazing food. You may be thinking it’s too expensive. Don’t worry, TrendE has got you covered! Just keep reading.

There are many local spots surrounding Cape Town, which offer the best food and wait for it……ON A BUDGET. YES you read that right. You won’t even spend above R200 with these deals.

And in no particular order… Here are our picks:

Redemption Burgers

Here is a reason to go to the Old Biscuit Mill (not that anyone needs a reason to go) – but here it is in any case: Redemption Burgers.

Redemption Burgers offers one of the best burgers in town. And to support our argument – we went to look at their reviews. The conclusion? Everybody just loves them! They offer a  variety of burgers and local beer.
