The community of entrepreneurs active in the cuisine sectors in Bellville represent a cosmopolitan mix from across the world with a majority of foreign-born entrepreneurs being from East and North Africa as well as parts of Asia and Europe; and of course there exists our local heritage flavours. The rise in ethnic restaurants and informal traders has made the eastern side of the VRC an area which promotes itself as an exotic food destination. Bellville CBD is a vibrant precinct which offers an afripolitan atmosphere – the opportunity to experience continents within quarters. This downtown area has its own distinct character of urbanism which thrives off a vibrant street-side lifestyle of restaurant hotspots.

12 Mile Tour is Bellville’s first ever ‘food walk’ through the CBD. Led by a guide, with a goodie bag in hand, we take you on a strategic route through the CBD and show you all Bellville’s afripolitan cuisine has to offer.
