#HighburyHearsYou – we at Cape Town Etc are passionate about getting local restaurants back and booming in business. As part of our #HighburyHearsYou initiative, we’re dishing out the deets on some incredible restaurants in and around town.

Food, glorious food. We look to the trusty burger to satisfy our cravings and boy, are we spoilt for choice. The battle of the burgers is on and we’ve managed to narrow it down to arguably the five most badass burgers in the Cape. Change our minds, we dare you.
