Cape Town Restaurant Uses Aquaponics and Solar Energy

•, By Kelsey Jourdan
  He started Moyo as a small restaurant in Norwood, Johannesburg that served both authentic African food and music. Now, distinctive food and music are the foundation of eight Moyo locations, each with its own personality relative to its surroundings.

Moyo V&A Waterfront is located in Clock Tower square where visitors can experience “the first ever moyo Souk – an open-air marketplace where you can indulge in African produce and street food offered by the 20 stalls dotted on the waters edge.” Moyo worked closely with New Southern Energy (NSE) and other collaborators in taking a bold step to becoming the first-of-its-kind, fully sustainable organic food market at the V & A Waterfront, Cape Town.

 The food market opened in November last year, allowing local and international patrons to enjoy the fresh and unique dining concept. Diners are now able to enjoy the sea breeze on the edge of the waterfront canals, with a fresh food market that makes use of a sophisticated aquaponics system that grows organic vegetables for use in the main kitchen and food stalls.
