Biesmiellah – simple, relaxed & tasty

I’m taking you back to Cape Town with this post if I may. No objections? Good! 🙂

We visited a restaurant that’s quite an institution & once we sat down I couldn’t believe it was my 1st time there. Biesmiellah, a totally authentic Cape Malay family run diner type restaurant has been around for some 20 + years.

Biesmiellah is super laid back & informal

For starters we had a selection of savouries like pies, half moons & potato warrah’s. Most come in a choice of chicken, beef or lamb.

Lust

  • Homely food absolutely bursting with flavour
  • They’re fully halaal – rare, even in Cape Town…

We visited Biesmiellah twice while in Cape Town but so good was this prawn curry that I had it both times. Its mild, but so fragrant. The roti is melt-in-your mouth buttery. I could eat it on its own…

The bobotie with sweet yellow rice needed less rice & more bobotie but was very good nonetheless. This meal took me back to Sunday lunches at home growing up in Cape Town.

Love

  • Warm, homely service in a totally relaxed & informal setting – don’t expect anything fancy.
  • Décor that makes me feel like I’m sitting in my gran’s lounge.

Try as I may I couldn’t possibly get any more food in but we ordered a sago pudding with custard for the table anyway.

Loathe

  • Not a thing!

 

If I ran the place

•             They don’t take reservations which worried me a bit at 1st but we called ahead both times to make sure there was seating available. So perhaps I wouldn’t change this about them it’s just how laid back the place is.

I marvelled at this table of America tourists who lapped up all the dishes. They were super complimentary & the dishes just seemed to keep coming!

Need to know

  • They also have a take away service right next door if you need to eat on the run
