Step 1: leave airport, dump bags at hotel. Step 2: come straight to mojo market for this stall and eat oysters with a glass of MCC. Tick and tick. Giant oysters are incredible. Loved the special oyster shots too! Usual staff were on training day so we had the boss (We think!) Super knowledgeable, friendly and happy to answer loads of questions. What a dream start to holidaying in Cape Town.

Guys, so great to have this lovely review!! We were so happy to have you. Yes, I stepped away from the main office to spend the day at the Sea Point Branch and get a little direct customer relations : ) So yes, you met the founder. Please visit our other branch at the Root44 Market in Stellenbosch on either Saturday or Sunday. Its a great experience in the winelands and loads of fun and a great all round experience of South African daily life.

Wonderful to have met you both, but I am sure my staff would have been more knowladgeable and far superior than myself ; )

Went to Mojo Market specifically to try their mussels. I was not disappointing!! Flavor was amazing, the mussels were so meaty, the food was so fresh!! and the portion was big. I am so impressed. Cannot wait to go back.
