Anyone who’s ever been to Putney, Southfields or Clapham will have noticed there are a fair few South Africans in this city of ours. London’s cultural dialogue with South Africa goes back centuries, but the community here coalesced during the massive expat influx in the ’90s, when the UK’s Saffa population more than doubled.
Now we’ve got everything from delis to high-end restaurants, and cultural events and gatherings across the city all year round. So we want to know: what’s your favourite South African place in London? Tell us your top spots to stock up on biltong, listen to mbaqanga or start a Heritage Day braai, and we’ll feature the best tips in Time Out London magazine.
