Cape Town winter restaurant specials 2013
Fazielah Williams has lived in and loved her Mother City since birth. Having lived all over the Peninsula during her childhood, she now calls the picturesque City Bowl home and likes nothing more than watching the sun set over Table Bay from the window of her apartment.
A lover of the arts and proud Cape Town fanatic, Fazielah began her writing career by spending many hours as a child conjuring fantastical stories that featured independent heroines from faraway lands who saved the Prince instead. This Capetonian princess has enjoyed stints as a magical arts PRO and TV publicist before finding her calling as a travel writer.
When not waxing lyrical about the Fairest Cape’s most loved attractions and activities and embarking on unexpected adventures, Fazielah can usually be found taking in a show at one of the City’s fabulous theatres.
The cooler weather we’ve been enjoying in inspirational Cape Town lately conjures up images of snuggling up before roaring fires, and feasting on the scrumptious affordable meals at the Mother City’s most delicious restaurants.
Warming your heart and tummy needn’t be expensive with a variety of tasty specials at eateries in and around Cape Town. From fine dining for less at the über-chic One&Only at the V&A Waterfront to cheap-but-hearty potjies at the Inn on the Square on Greenmarket Square and cost-worthy three-course meals at Harbour House in Kalk Bay, you can eat for less in the Mother City this winter.
