In January I received an email from Afrokaans to request that Kapow! Food Truck trade at Big Bay Market in February. Afrokaans is a Film & TV production company who is producing lifestyle shows for the new Media24 channel on DSTV, VIA TV on channel 147.
One of the shows, “PADKOS” (afrikaans for street food) is a doccie-reality show about the well known food truck Limoncello (see below) which now has a new owner and on a quest to find a new identity, look & menu. The menu is incredible by the way! Catch Padkos on channel 147 on Mondays at 16:00. Leroux Botha has featured in more than a dozen episodes already on his quest in & around Cape Town to discover foods of the Western Cape. With the help with his food heroes (people like Pete Goffe Wood, Lentswe Bhengu, Matt Manning, Reuben Riffel and many more) he discovered new places & food and then experimented to see if certain dishes can work as street food. Now, the food truck has found a menu & has a fantastic new look & identity.
I was interviewed by the presenter who some traders accidentally thought was Matt Moran (I may have fainted), we had such a ball hosting their truck and it was a fabulous sunset as well!
