Some new spots have appeared in the North that you may not know about. So for those days you just need a quick fix or for when you need a night off cooking here’s a roundup of what’s newly halaal as well as your old favourites. So kick back on the couch, turn on the Netflix, send hubby out to collect and start your weekend with a chilled out Friday night.
This global pizza brand is back in the country for over 2 years but only recently in the Cape. They have 8 stores in the Cape, 5 of them halaal. Try the Peperoni lovers pizza for just sweet and simple. My favourite. The 2 halaal branches in the north are:
N1 City Value Centre
An American style fast food this outlet serves processed sausages in various flavours with added condiments like onions, gherkins and other extras on extra long hot dog rolls. The branch at N1 City was not halaal before but they have recently become halaal certified. Other halaal branches according to the NIHT website:
N1 City Mall
Cape Gate Centre
Hooked on Fish, Goodwood
A new fish and chips place at N1 City at the Checkers entrance which has also gotten halaal certification. I recently bought a calamari gatsby from them and I can vouch for extremely generous portions. Flavour was good. But I am yet to try their other offerings.
