Serabi Kinca (Indonesian pancake with coconut palm sugar sauce)

Serabi or surabi is Indonesian pancake, traditionally fried in a special round clay pan on traditional charcoal clay stove. I still remember vividly how I used to make this serabi in traditional way when I was around 6, first dessert I have ever made! So I guess my passion of cooking and baking started from making serabi 🙂 Continue reading Serabi Kinca (Indonesian pancake with coconut palm sugar sauce)

Cape Town Halaal Eateries with Play Areas

During the school holiday I’ve compiled strictly halaal eateries with play areas. As parents with three little munchkins, we prefer to dine in child friendly eateries. This list is specified to the halaal eateries with play areas, as opposed as merely child friendly (have kids menu and crayons). Kindly click the green link for the full review of such eatery where applicable.

Surprisingly spacious with various toys, divided in different segments. Located in second floor, there are some dine in tables for family with kids on this level. Beautiful view of Hout Bay from the table area.
