Mugg & Bean Kenilworth Centre

I’ve been anticipating the opening of Mugg & Bean Kenilworth Centre for quite a while, and excited that I’ve finally tried it out. Mugg & Bean KC is halaal certified (MJC Halaal Trust). Last time I had Mugg & Bean was a good couple of years ago when Mugg & Bean halaal certified store was still opened in Van Gate Mall. Continue reading Mugg & Bean Kenilworth Centre

Saddles Steak Ranch, Belville

So, we’ve finally got a chance to try out the fully halaal family steak restaurant in the northern suburb of Bellville, Saddles Steak Ranch Bellville.

We were all happy with the food. The Saddle Ribs with sweet sticky baste (Ladies size 400 gr R129,95) that I ordered was perfectly seasoned and saucy. The portions was all generous. I like the crispy onion rings. Continue reading Saddles Steak Ranch, Belville

Dunkin’ Donuts

When Dunkin’ Donuts has finally opened branches in Cape Town, I was just soooo happy. This brought back my childhood memory when first time I had Dunkin’ Donuts in Indonesia, I must have been around 12 years old. Ohhh old good Dunkin’ donuts! The above image is my favorite Dunkin’ for all these years, it’s called Boston Cream. It’s a round donuts filled with vanilla filling and chocolate topping. Continue reading Dunkin’ Donuts

Cinnabon (Cavendish Square Branch)

My first experience with this inviting cinnamon aroma of Cinnabon was when I performed umrah over a decade ago in Medina. When Cinnabon opened their doors in South Africa, I was excited! I used to buy Cinnabon in Canal Walk branch. Then came Cavendish Square branch! Yeay.. closer to home…. I have been waiting until Cavendish Square halaal certification was ready because this post is based on the Cavendish Square branch. So last time I bought from them, I saw MJC halaal certificate was on the wall. Continue reading Cinnabon (Cavendish Square Branch)

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.

Pizza Hut

Pizza Hut is finally (back) in South Africa.. yeay… I love the fact that many international food chains are recently opening in Cape Town. Meaning that I feel “more at home” as many international chains have been operating in Indonesia since my childhood. For a person who is not a fan of pizza, I eat and like Pizza Hut firstly, for the fact that it’s reminding me of one of my childhood’s fave. Secondly, yep the pizza is delish.

Pizza Hut is an an American Italian food chain and franchise. Therefore their pizza is a thick base. For South Africans whom used to eat thin based pizza, don’t worry, Pizza Hut gives you an option of thin or thick base. Continue reading Pizza Hut

Tortilla Modern Mexican


For those who work in CBD area, I would recommend you to try Tortilla Modern Mexican.  I tried it out today, the food was nice, wholesome, yet it serves right away.

What you have to do is to build up your own meal, as per your liking.  First, you need to choose your carb, either a Burrito (tortilla wrap) or  in a bowl filled with either rice or mixed green. Continue reading Tortilla Modern Mexican
