South African

I'm trying to give a friend who lives in NYC a taste from home. Where can one find some South African delicacies/bakery items/candy/food AND a large selection of South African wine (have found that most wine shops have maybe 2-5 tops of each a red and a white). Thanks

    Have you been to xai xai wine bar? All south african wines....very reasonable by the glass and a good selection of apps:
    It looks like astor wines has 34 south african wines:

    1. Rouge Tomate has a very good selection of South African wines. Check with Pascaline Lepeltier.

        1. Kaia wine bar on Third in the low 90's. Good wine, food, etc. Great South African owners/staff.

              1. re: small h

                Yes, thanks very much. My spelling was from an old recipe found in a cookbook 40 years ago. I had it in South Africa a few weeks ago, but hadn't seen it here (they topped it with custard, rather than egg).
