Savour winter’s indulgence – comfort food

Hot meals are the flavour of the winter season – hearty casseroles, fiery curries, simmering soups and rich gravies – whether you come home to a warm house that’s filled with spicy aromas or go out to your favourite restaurant.
In central Cape Town you will find the Africa Café, which has three floors and seven richly decorated dining rooms.
You can fill up there with dishes of the African continent and also nourish your soul with a little African warmth.
Once you have had your meal, relax and let the ladies of the Africa Café thank you with a traditional Xhosa song.
For a taste of the township, visit Mzoli’s – the hip and happening local butchery turned music venue and eatery, and listen to some local music while the waiters braai your meat.
For Thai food, visit Simply Asia. Their tom yum goong pla-muk prawns and calamari in a spicy tom yum soup is sure to warm you up.
So escape the cold at one of the many fabulous restaurants that the Mother City has to offer.
