Holy Macaroni Food Truck
Absolutely, Claire Goosen has started some different here. Finally a Macaroni Food Truck. Besides, it’s super diverse and well worth having at your corporate event this year. So, if you hadn’t guessed it by the name, they are your connoisseurs of all things mac ‘n’ cheesy. They started in July 2017 by husband and Wife duo Ron & Claire. Both are from what we know, complete and absolute Cape Town Foodies.
Holy Macaroni launched in the heart of comfort food season, and it was love at first bite. People often ask why mac ‘n’ cheese – but in our world, you can never go wrong with carbs & cheese! We have taken a traditional dish, jazzed it up with more cheese than you know and have a variety of toppings for all your flavour profiles! We pride ourselves on the top quality products we use in each dish this includes a mix of local & imported. As the business has grown, we have launched other cheesy items such as deep-fried mozzarella sticks drizzled with truffle mayo – to die for.
Holy Macaroni has a seven-day operation inside Mojo Market (Sea Point) & of course, the newest addition to the mac family is food trailer which we use for events. Everything from music festivals, school carnivals and sporting events.

Ardi Food Truck
Ardi’s actual;y have 3 Food Trucks in their range.
The Ardi’s brand began over 20 years ago as a popular franchise of burger restaurants throughout the Western Cape.

Black Box Coffee Truck
Long-time high school friend, Yorke, and I had been travelling the world living completely different lives but keeping in contact enough to keep a small flame of ambition lit as we always spoke of how cool it would be to go back home and start a little food truck together. When we both found ourselves again in Cape Town, we were both in a bit of a ‘limbo’ kind of space where we weren’t too sure what to do next, so we started brainstorming. It wasn’t until Yorke’s mom was having a bit of a rant about always having to find parking when she wants to grab a quick coffee that the idea struck: drive-thru coffee. We started doing some research, and before we knew it, we were opening a bank account and pouring our savings into a joint account, and the ball just kept rolling from there.
We are completely off the grid. Therefore. We use natural spring water from the Newlands Spring to make our coffee. Along with this, we are solar-powered.
We wanted to target a more active, healthy lifestyle, go-getter type of customer and found Constantia Nek was the perfect fit for that. There are hikers, cyclists, parents dropping their kids at school, professionals on their way to work and there’s enough space for cars to utilize the drive-through window, so it turned out to be the perfect spot for us.
We set out to create something of value for people, and we’ve found day after day that people are so thankful for us being available in that location. We are grateful for the fantastic support we’ve received thus far.

Juan says the following. I always watched my mom prepared food and since early on in childhood I started cooking myself. My dad didn’t cook so often, but when he did it was truly amazing. I’ve always cooked for my family and friends when they come over. As a young man, I arrived in South Africa in 2003. Being 23, I was full of ideas and visions. Argies was created with passion in 2012. Since then, ARGIES has grown consistently. Both in product range and quality. We can 2 products out there in the market. N° Juan and iFreeze. You can purchase online www.number-juan.co.za Besides this, Argies South American Catering offers our UNIQUE ASADOS! (Argentinian braai on the cross). A must-try for your next corporate event, or Braai if you insist.
Juan says that he has worked with a range of celebrity Chefs in the past. These include, Lapo Magni, and the amazing Luke Dale Roberts. For those of you that don’t know, he started the Award-Winning Test Kitchen in Cape Town.
And the food you can find in N° Juan and iFreeze will be purely South American delicacies, such as Empanadas, Churros, Tarts, chorizo, chimichurri, mate, dulce de leche. It’s a superb range and one you will enjoy.
