Important Information

  • Hi, I'm Florence! I am a co-owner of the popular Pahari African Restaurant in Cape Town, South Africa. I learnt how to cook from my mother at an early age and the African cuisine recipes have been passed down our family from generation to generation. My husband and I have been in the food service industry for two decades. Throughout these years we have enjoyed sharing our culture with foreigners as well as hearing about their cultures, especially what they like to eat. We have a deep love for food, people and culture.
