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, is back with its popular Food Truck Friday, in partnership with mobile food kitchensThe concept, first launched in the States, has been garnering popularity and has certainly been well-received here in Cape Town since its initial 15 July launch.

As ever, Jack Black’s Tasting Room is the perfect indoor venue for this event, with its industrial-chic decor and furnishings, which were made from the packaging used to transport the brew house from Germany.


Not only will there be live entertainment courtesy of JPson and Llevado, but you can also expect some excellent grub from Tailgate Food (decadent flame grilled grub) and Food Glorious Food (awesome burgers, prego rolls and slaw). 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.
