Many Cape Townians shy away from heading out of their abodes come the freezing winter wind to Cape Town, however, restauranteurs are weather savvy and combat this hermit behaviour with winter specials!
Over the years I have taken advantage of many a winter special and hope to conquer even more this winter. Thanks to Eat Out Magazine, South Africa’s foodie mag, for putting together a comprehensive list, saving us much air time ringing every establishment!
Here are the top 5 restaurants calling my taste buds…
