From the Italian nobility during the Renaissance to the Elizabethans and the Japanese, edible gold has been used for centuries. It’s a natural food additive with no discernable flavour. Our guests dine on opulent African cuisine with an evocative touch of gold here and there. It’s a small part of what we do to create an unusual fine dining experience.

Authentic African Dining Experience

Our cuisine authentically reflects the colourful diversity of Africa and its people. GOLD's menu includes a variety of traditional African dishes with a Western twist.

As we’re based in Cape Town, we couldn’t possibly exclude Cape Malay dishes. After all, the Cape Malay community has played an important part in shaping Cape Town’s rich, cultural diversity.

Gold standard ingredients

We make certain that our menu contains carefully selected ingredients, of which edible gold is one. You’ll find a sprinkling of gold dust on our ever-popular Boeber dessert and we put gold leaf in our bubbly. Boeber is a delicate, gently spiced Cape Malay sweet made from milk, almonds, cinnamon, saffron, rosewater, cardamom, vermicelli, and more.

Is edible gold safe to ingest?

Edible gold does not get absorbed into the body and passes through your digestive tract in 24 hours. We use a product that contains 22-24 carats. A lesser carat value has more chance of containing impurities and is less safe to eat.
