The world’s “best restaurant”, “Wolfgat”, from the Cape West Coast town of Paternoster, will temporarily close from next week to take part in the UK’s, “Taste of London” festival this month.

The whole staff compliment of the picturesque 20- seater seaside restaurant, including its head chef- Kobus van der Merwe are going abroad to open a pop-up restaurant at the prestigious food affair to present their mouth- watering dishes to a global audience.

The team will serve a seated tasting menu, including a collection of their best-loved specialities featuring ingredients such as mussels, oysters, and dishes including a Cape Malay fish curry.

Van der Merwe says his six-strong team is very excited as them have not been on a plane yet and are looking forward to the trip.

“Wolfgat” stunned the culinary world when it took home two accolades at the World Restaurant Awards in February, including the top prize of Restaurant of the Year.
