You would find Chicken Rice in restaurants to food hawkers anywhere there. There are two versions of chicken rice, one with roasted chicken, the other one is steamed chicken. I would share the roasted and simplified chicken  rice version as it’s my favorite! Continue reading Hainanese Chicken Rice

Coffee at Strictly Halaal Spots in Cape Town

Coffee culture is emerging in Cape Town in these past years.  I myself have become a little bit of coffee (cappuccino) addict. Only good coffee though. A wow/quaint/quirky/homey decor would be a plus and oh… the smell of freshly roasted coffee would be a plus plus as well and if it is in strictly halaal spots? plus plus plus..

Halaal Restaurants in Cape Town

Here’s the list of recommended strictly halaal restaurants in Cape Town that I have visited in non-alphabetical and non-preferable orders.

This list is not covering the entire strictly halaal restaurants in Cape Town yet, for two reasons: (i) I haven’t been to that particular restaurant recently in the period as mentioned  (I need to revisit  to see the present quality); (ii) I’ve been to a particular restaurant in such period but don’t like the food or the service. This list will be updated regularly (the newest posting  will be on the top of the list), In sha Allah. The restaurants that have got  full reviews are clickable in green. Please click Halaal Fast Food and Take Away List for more eateries in fast food/take away category.
