About Migdalia

Migdalia offers an authentic Latin American and international cuisine experience for private dinners, private parties or corporate events.

Venezuelan born Chef Migdalia has been catering in Cape Town through her company Constantia Cuisine since 2007. In 2009 she began an experiment to introduce real Latino street food at her popular market stalls in Cape Town and Stellenbosch where her vibrant personality and direct style became as much an attraction as the food itself!

Migdalia previously spent five years in Mexico City where she developed her passion for different types of Latino food.

In 2011 she decided to take a culinary pilgrimage through parts of Latin America less familiar to her and visited Argentina, Chile and Peru in search of new flavours to bring to Cape Town.

There, on her 4,000 km overland odyssey from the wine growing regions to the high Andes and the Atacama desert, she tasted such delicacies as grilled guinea pig, barbecued llama and pico loco (the crazy biting mollusc of southern Chile) and drank "chicha” – Inca beer brewed in local houses from potatoes or maize.

On her return she decided to open her own restaurant at 17 Bree Street under her Orinoco brand where she serves authentic Latino dishes from around the continent.
