Chef's Pencil, an American food magazine from New York, recently asked 250 chefs and foodies which place they thought was the most underrated foodie destination in the world. Based on their responses, the magazine has put together two lists of the most underrated foodie destinations - a country list and a city list. According to Chef's Pencil's food experts, Cape Town in South Africa is the world's most underrated foodie destination. It describes Cape Town as "the premier South African city for food, catering for every taste and style – haute cuisine, street food to die for, eclectic pop-ups" and as "Being a port city and sitting on the Dutch East India’s Spice Route, its food has been flavored by spices and cuisines from around the world – the true Mother City of the Rainbow Nation."
