Since 2002, The World’s 50 Best Restaurants has aimed to reflect the diversity and excellence of the glocal culinary landscape.
On July 18, this year’s Top 50 awards ceremony took place in London – with Cape Town’s Fyn taking on number 37 and marking the list’s 20th year. This after Wolfgat and La Colombe took the 90th and 56th places respectively in the Top 100.
Fyn (pronounced “good”) opened in 2018 and has since risen to prominence on the global culinary scene. This year he broke the Top 50 list for the first time, also winning the Best in Africa award with them.
The menu is Japanese inspired. Although dishes change frequently, customers can expect tastes like guinea fowl tsukune, tonkatsu tare, Iberian pork with okonomiyaki sauce and cabbage, and daikon maki with ponzu gel.
Backed by French Managing Director Jennifer Hugé and Head Chef Ashley Moss, Fyn was launched by Chef and Restaurateur Peter Tempelhoff. They are the three responsible for the restaurant’s ever-evolving food philosophy and its rise in the culinary world.
Triple-height windows offer exceptional views of Lion’s Head and Table Mountain – best enjoyed with a glass of something cold and sparkling from the surrounding vineyards that encompass the restaurant.
