Balducci have added a Vegan Menu to their eclectic offering at the V&A Waterfront and it is already proving to be very popular with both vegans and non-vegans.

“Our new plant-based menu reflects our commitment to supporting sustainable organic agriculture in the long term, our respect for the planet and our commitment to meeting the needs of all our diners.”

“Plant-based food is the hottest culinary trend of 2018, according to global food-industry experts. With the rise of conscious eating, awareness surrounding sustainability and rapidly growing health trends, veganism is on the rise around the world and very evident in Cape Town. At Balducci we believe that you always have to keep abreast with the latest trends, keep upping your standards, innovating and reinventing yourself to remain a step ahead. That’s why we have been around for 21 years!” says Ian Halfon, co-owner of Balducci and MD of the Slick Restaurant Group.

The Balducci Vegan Menu has been in the making for a good while, with a lot of time, effort and thought going into the creation of dishes that deliver on all fronts: taste, texture, visual appeal, variety and value in addition to being pure, natural, wholesome, nutrient-rich, healthy and eco- and animal-friendly.

The new stand-alone Vegan Menu is creative and comprehensive with over 60 delicious options including juices, smoothies and power bowls made with superfoods and probiotics, soups, wraps, nachos, curry, pasta, Asian bowls, sushi, pizzas, burgers, desserts, hot and cold drinks and vegan wines – all in all an insane variety to keep you coming back for more.  Favourites include Berry Frenzy Power Bowl, Falafel, Zucchini Tartar, Salad in a Jar, Red Thai Curry, Guacamole Rice Paper Wrap, Smokey Black Bean Burger, Spinach Green Pizza, Cashew Nut Cream Pasta and to end your vegan feast on a sweet note, the Vegan Cheesecake with a Berry Marble Swirl and Frozen Berries served with Coconut Vegan Yoghurt are highly recommended.

Wherever possible, the ingredients are organic, seasonal, gluten-free, low-GI, chemical and preservative-free, non-GMO, detox-friendly, raw and loaded with vitamins and minerals. No refined sugar or oils, synthetic ingredients or unhealthy fats are used. Honey substitutes include agave syrup, coconut nectar or maple syrup (Canadian maple syrup when available). Balducci only use Himalayan or sea salt and non-irradiated herbs and spices. Slow cooking and the use of ingredients dried at low temperatures maximises the availability of nutrients.

The Slick Restaurant Group’s commitment to the environment includes the use of menus printed on recycled paper with sustainable ink, recycled paper bags printed with vegetable ink and phasing out the use of disposable plastic products. They only use recycled (FDA approved) paper straws and straws made from corn and maize starch, and Balducci supports alien clearing by only using alien wood types in their pizza oven.

The Slick Restaurant Group’s passion extends to the local community. A vision to serve others and to make a difference has led to a partnership with Tygerberg Hospital assisting them in increasing the number of corneal transplants undertaken by their Department of Ophthalmology. Slick Restaurant Group company donations together with help from generous customers at their three restaurants resulted in the first lamellar corneal surgery being performed at Tygerberg Hospital on Mrs Gladys Maistry from Eersterivier on 10th May 2018, restoring her sight. This unique private-public-partnership between the Slick Restaurant Group and Tygerberg Hospital will continue ‘Giving a Helping Hand to Someone in the Dark’, with operations now taking place on a more frequent basis. Donations to this deserving initiative can be made via the Slick Restaurant Group website – please visit

“There is no better way to thank God for your sight than by giving a helping hand to someone in the dark” (Helen Keller, 1880 – 1968)
