halal feature: Simply Asia @ Cape Town, South Africa

Another halal stall at Victoria Wharf Shopping Mall’s food court at V & A Waterfront. This one served Asian food, which made us feel right at home. They offered a great variety of dishes, from rice to noodles to sushi. Fiza and I were unanimously inclined towards their Thai dishes. Perhaps (as much as we hated to admit it) we already missed home style food ^_^

Fiza in front of the stall.

Halal sign can clearly be seen at the top left corner.

Yes, halal indeed!

We sat outside under a canopy. Nice breezy evening.

The blue and red plaques were buzzers. Once the food was ready the buzzers went off, so we could go to the counter to pick it up.

My fried rice. Chinese style, if I’m not mistaken.

Fiza’s paprik rice. They called it differently over there, can’t remember the exact name. But it sure tasted like paprik!

I had chocolate popiah with ice cream for dessert.

Just look at the melted chocolate oozing out! Yummy!

Fiza’s caramel pudding, also served with ice cream.

How was the food? Excellent, just like home! The ambiance? Well, we did enjoy sitting outside, though the strong cape wind did blow some of our food away. I ended up eating fried rice with Sprite “gravy”!

Moral of the story: Don’t ever underestimate cape wind’s strength. One moment it’s a nice breeze on your cheek. The next moment you will be holding on to your food to keep it from flying to the next table!

Here’s the place on Google map.
