The Cape Town food scene is ever evolving. We are so spoilt for choice, and new places open on the regular. It feels pretty saturated, and impossible to visit every new place – the pressure is large. The Sneaky Sausage however is new and cool (in a rad, unpretentious way) and my new go-to hang out. A modern take on the German beerhall, it’s a no-mess, no-fuss, no-frills kind of place, and yes, it serves sausage.
Brat, bock, knack, cheese and chorizo, as well as vegan options and a selection of snacks, including sweet potato fries, tempura veg, jalapeño popper wontons and risotto balls, you have your pick of tasty options that pair perfectly with an after work tipple. The jalapeño popper wontons are just about my new favourite thing.
All beers (tap and bottle) are supplied by AND UNION and a curated wine list is on offer, by bottle or glass, plus a barrel-aged house bourbon. Unlike the flurry of restaurants and bars in Cape Town, Sneaky isn’t overpriced. The menu is simple, the service friendly and the prices competitive for really tasty food. It’s a breath of fresh air.
Added info: The entrance to Sneaky is via The House of Machines. It’s closed on Sundays and Mondays, and only open from 4pm (except Friday and Saturday, then it’s open from 12pm).
