Cape Town’s Food Truck Friday

Cape Town’s Food Truck Friday Laura McCullagh

The popular street-food soirée is back, with double the food-truck fun.

Jack Black’s Brewing Co, one of SA’s leading craft-beer producers, welcomes beer aficionados and fun-loving folk to its monthly Food Truck Fridays. The concept, first launched in the States, has been garnering popularity and has certainly been well-received in Cape Town since its 2016 launch.

With its industrial-chic decor and furnishings, Jack Black’s Tasting Room is the perfect indoor venue for this event, which is brought to you in partnership with mobile food kitchens.


Not only will there be live entertainment courtesy of Jimm Harisson Project and Purplecry, but you can also expect some excellent grub from Food Glorious Food (delicious burgers and fries) and Charming Spit (tasty toasted wraps, boerie roll and lamb rolls). That’s a whole lot of deliciousness that you can pair with one of Jack Black’s craft beers: pale ale, amber ale, India pale ale and pre-prohibition style lager.

The next edition of this event looks to be just as exciting as the previous ones, and it looks as if Food Truck Friday is going to be a regularly monthly event on the last Friday of the month. Subscribe to our newsletter and we’ll keep you posted.
