What the fork is Fork? Well, allow the Grand Daddy to open the doors of Longstreet to you by introducing you to another one of the cool cat establishments that graces the city with its presence. Delivering deliciously bite sized meals, Fork is a great place to stop by after work with friends or during a stay with us at the Grand Daddy Hotel.
“No ‘sweaty’ chorizo or ‘clammy’ calamari on cocktail sticks – Fork’s pinchos are culinary ‘Tours de Force’ in their own right, delivering dishes that wouldn’t look out of place in a Michelin-starred restaurant.” – Fork
Serving contemporary Spanish style Pinchos, the restaurant exudes a laid-back and down to earth atmosphere. Pinchos are basically fork sized tapas jam packed full of Spanish favours with a South African twist, perfect for sharing with friends . The spirit of sharing creates a totally different culinary experience and also allows you to discover and enjoy various tastes in the same meal. We think tapas and communal eating is just the bee’s knees, which is why we also serve them at our rooftop bar.
“Tapas are best shared between friends, who can enjoy new tastes together and share in laid-back conversation,” Says owner at Fork, J.D. “In fact, we get groups that come in after work and order a plate or two every hour until we close, just chilling over a nice bottle of wine. That’s what we wanted to create here: a place to relax with friends and enjoy a world of flavour.”
Before stepping though the front doors, you can feel the passion that has been poured into every aspect of Fork. Owners J.D Haasbroek and Ed Saunders are all about great dining, bringing people together and providing them with a culinary revolution. This trend-setting hangout is well-known for its specials and tastings. Each dish is so vastly different from the other that every forkful is an explosion of flavour and you may even need a moment to recover between each bite.
So whether you live in Cape Town and are just looking for a new hang-out, or you’re staying with us at the Grand Daddy and are keen get out and experience something different, Fork is guaranteed to provide good vibes and great food! And since they are basically two steps away from our front door, we’d definitely recommend a visit…because why the fork not!
