Hg2 : The Hedonist

Royale Eatery

This is probably one of the quirkiest places to eat in Cape Town, awash with pretty young things, some of whom are the fresh-faced beauties who dispense menus, while others are those imbibing in the awesome burgers and shakes. Like something Mia Wallace in Pulp Fiction would have dreamt up, Royale is Cape Town’s long-standing burger champion, and the long and varied selection of what can be squeezed between your buns-Thai fish; ostrich and beetroot; lentils, soya, chickpeas and humus; even a supremely over the top “fat bastard”-still sets this place apart from the competition (although quite a few Capetonians have now fallen for the homogenized New York ambience at Hudsons-The Burger Joint, farther up the drag, on Kloof Street, Tel: 021 426 5974). Besides the tantalising array of burgers, the milkshakes are the kind worth giving Uma Thurman a foot massage for-try the Jack Daniels and peanut butter concoction-and the ever-fresh retro-Bohemian décor is an instant spirit lifter.
