Cape eatery roaring after Obama visit
BARELY two weeks after the US first lady, Michelle Obama, chose a tiny eatery in Cape Town to enjoy lunch, the place is pumping
Not that it was a quiet restaurant before, but The Kitchen in Woodstock has been thrust into the global spotlight.
Since Obama's visit, curious locals are visiting the establishment to find out why Obama singled the place out.
"I realised after her visit that we were probably chosen carefully," owner Karen Dudley said.
"I am only speculating that it could be because it is a woman-owned, woman-driven business. We are 14 women working here and most of us are black."
Dudley said she has catered for the American consulate before and the place was reviewed by the New York Times last year.
"Since Obama's visit, several new faces have popped in to see what we are all about."
