Afro Flava😋👅💦

As I sit down and reflect from the last time I wrote to ya’ll, a lot has quite happened. I mean from dating to finding a job, there’s been quite a personal growth.  I recently just got a job as a server at a pretty descent restaurant. Others would call it a classy, high-end but yet affordable.  Having worked in the restaurant business before, this was one thing I’ve always shied away from. Getting the three/four dollars an hour is not a conversation one looks forward to hearing especially when you’re in desperate need of fast cash. Now that I am in the industry and knowing what servers go through, it all makes sense. (Future blog post)

Anyways, so ya’ll remember my Instagram food page that I started a few weeks ago? (@Afro_flava) well let’s just say it’s been great so far. What started out as a platform for showcasing my love for food, quickly overturned to a possible business venture.

Not going to lie but all this happened so fast, it still feels like a dream. They say it happens when you least expect it. It all started when one of my good friends had asked me to make her a meal prep (this was when I was struggling to find a job). She offered to buy the main ingredients and pay me $50.00.

At first it seemed like a side hustle but mostly just helping out a friend. Besides I cook all the time on social media so it really didn’t seem much to me. After her reaction of the master piece that I prepared for her, I decided to kinda venture and look for more folks who will be willing to pay for a meal prep.​

We’re living in a time where fitness is a trend and all that comes with it (food, fashion, beauty) has become a day to day lifestyle. I believe this is an un-tapped market area so why not be smart and take a risk in this possible business.​

​I never imagined I will be my own boss, yet again we also never thought Trump would be president. Thus far I’ve gotten a couple of clients here and there but haven’t really gotten a loyal clientele yet. As crazy as it sounds, I feel like maybe this could be the start of something big.

I officially want to introduce you to Afro Flava. A food and beverage company that is dedicated to exploring the art of food and different ways to exciting ones taste buds by catering meal preps.

Taste Buds 🇿🇦😝☕️

One thing about South Africa is the pride they take in their rich food culture. Being the foodie that I am, this is literally heaven for me. I thought I was going to lose weight but weightloss is seeming to be more of a future goal than a present moment.

With everything relatively close distance to each other. One cannot miss a coffee shop or some type of local restaurant in whichever direction or street you walk to. Apart from the famous Mcdonalds found on main st,  They barely have corporation based chain restaurants which I think is great because it promotes and encourages local small businesses. 

This morning while walking to get registered for classes, I came across a cafe by the name “TasteBud” which is a food pantry and Eatery. 

 It’s literally a classy, preppy cafe that mostly exudes brunch and coffee vibes☕️. Meaning, all the good stuff that you can think of that falls into the brunch food category. They also happen to serve a lunch buffet with a different menu everyday. ​


Also the staff is very friendly and welcoming which to me has been the best  customer service so far since I have been here. Like most cafes, they have an outside patio where one can enjoy their meal in the beautiful weather. 

 I am definitely looking forward to more Stellenbosch foodie adventures which I will keep you guys posted.
