Cape Town Winter Restaurant Specials 2014: Cool places with cheap meals to eat at in the Mother City
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.
Do you know why I love the chilly season in the Mother City so much? It’s because, besides being able to curl up with endless mugs of hot chocolate and good books by a roaring fireplace all over my hometown, I can also enjoy tucking into a variety of lip-smacking, hearty, cost-worthy meals in #lovecapetown.
From delicious bottomless soup to table-laden buffets, I just can’t get enough of the indoor, affordable culinary delights on offer in our gorgeous city.
Brave the cold air and join me for these centsable Cape Town Winter Restaurant Specials:
Get your scrumptious lunch at the V&A Waterfront harbour side for less this autumn with Mondiall Kitchen&Bar’s unmissable autumn specials.
