Cape Town is home to some extraordinary restaurants overflowing with good food, good vibes and incredible service. Even more special is the fact that many of these restaurants cater to the large Muslim population that calls the Mother City home.
From Belgravia to Bellville, as the holy month of Ramadaan slowly draws to a close, we’ve made a list of five delicious restaurants that are the perfect spot to help you fill your belly and enjoy Iftaar:
