EATChickpeas. They make Chana Masala (Indian), Hummus (Middle-Eastern), Kacang Puteh (Singaporean mixed nuts) and Shiro (Ethiopian) - sufficient to keep me alive and extremely happy. My favorite type of food is Ethiopian food, and the best Ethiopian Restaurant is Addis in Cape. Everything they serve is delicious and the music and atmosphere are very conducive for a chill night out with good friends.

SEEMy favorite thing to do, anywhere in the world, is go for a walk in and around the city. Cape Town is the most stunning place for a walk, as Table Mountain looms above with miles of trails that take in the city and its surrounding vineyards, forests and ocean. After a walk on the mountain, I'd grab a Rooibos tea on Kloof Street and read all afternoon. On summer evenings, outdoor parties are everywhere - grab a spot on the beach and take in the late sunset on the Atlantic coast.

A wonderfully scenic spot for a most special brunch.

SLEEP:  This stunning house is situated on the slopes of Table Mountain! It has spectacular views and enough room for up to 10 people.
