126 Cape Kitchen & Cafe at Hyatt Regency Cape Town hotel in Bo-Kaap is once again offering a special buffet menu for Iftar and Suhoor running for the Ramadan fasting period only.
This Halaal-certified restaurant is inviting guests to dine on a flavoursome three-course menu with drinks included daily until 9pm. Whether you’re observing Ramadan or just after a Cape Town restaurant serving authentic cuisine in a chilled atmosphere, this experience is worth a try.
MERGING MIDDLE EASTERN AND CAPE MALAY CUISINE
The team welcome guests with a lassi in mixed fruit and mango, or a rose-infused drink with herbs, roots, and other flavours served in the open kitchen space. Start off with soft dates to break the fast and a selection of samoosas with mint chutney, chilli bites, and a range of Middle Eastern faves such as falafels, baba ganoush, hummus and more to make your own mezze platter.
Next comes a table filled with bottomless savoury dishes. Think hearty Butter chicken that melts in the mouth, a mix of grilled meats, Tandoori lamb chops cooked to perfection at the restaurant’s bespoke oven, as well as sides. Vegetarians can tuck into Dhal Tadka and a roast vegetable casserole which goes together well with nutty saffron rice.
For dessert, the rich and decadent semolina pudding is bound to win over many but also try the individually baked and crustless Malay spiced milk tartlets or chai pudding.
‘We decided to go with a Middle Eastern, Sub Continental and Mediterranean feel on our menu having taken into consideration all the feedback we received last year, says Hyatt Hotels SA Specialty Chef, Asif Mughal. ‘There is something for everyone on the menu, from the starters to the mains with some traditional dishes accompanying authentic street food and nibbles. The beverage offering also sees traditional yet refreshing options on the menu,’ explained the chef.
The atmosphere at 126 Cape Kitchen & Cafe is relaxed with modern, understated furnishings in earthy neutrals.
