Having just completed a wonderfully impactful trip to Robben Island with Dean and Zania, Chantelle and I now found ourselves taking a bit of a stroll around the endlessly photogenic V&A Waterfront (the Robben Island Museum ferry terminal is situated in the Clock Tower precinct) in search of a good lunch location.
Tourist spotting, sculpture snapping, Krispy Kreme doughnut devouring, and marimba foot tapping done, we settled on the rather unique looking Saray restaurant with its beckoning red carpet invitation.
Saray (meaning palace in Turkish) brings authentic (and delicious) Turkish food to Cape Town, and this fully Halaal (which take note, means not a drop of alcohol in sight, ballsy in the wine and beer loving heart of Cape Town city tourism) restaurant experience does not disappoint in their mission. Tight quarters, hookah pipes left right and center, and a large menu filled with all manner of Turkish bakes and meats makes for a very communal eating experience, one which both Chantelle and I walked away from with full bellies and big smiles on our faces.
Yet another great restaurant experience at the V&A Waterfront.
