I was taken to Kalky's by a Cape Town expat, it is a local institution, a basic diner serving mostly the African market but the odd tourist pops in .
You queue up in a line stretching for 50 m at peak times when you get to the counter you can choose a vast range of seafood , we had Lobster , calamari and some local fish delicacies with a big serve of chips and a drink for about A$11 each , a feast for a bargain price.
Another colorful aspect is the security guards chasing away the beggars that come to your table with tales of woe and requests for money, the strict waitress's shoo them away and call security to see off the most persistent
A real cultural experience with great food and a side show too, what more could you ask for lunch, finish it off with a walk on the wharf and watch the fishing boats unload their catches
and you get a great feel for Kalk Bay
