South Africans have their own customs and seldom mix with other traditions. It’s not often that you’ll bite into a boerewors spring roll or find a vetkoek at a high tea. This is why today’s Groupon is particularly peculiar as it allows you to savour R120 worth of traditional South African kos in a Moroccan atmosphere at Fezorati Coffee Emporium.
Fezorati is the ideal place for traditional Middle Eastern coffee as well as the perfect place to sit and nosh on light authentic South African-style dishes. Expect cheese platters with pickles, dried fruit with chutney and spiced lamb and chicken sausages among other well-known and popular Suid-Afrikaanse dishes.
Fezorati’s Bedouin braai area has become a popular spot for after work drinks, eats or just a lekker kyer around the braai. Alternatively, take an afternoon out and relax on the terrace with a cup of mint tea – just one of the flavours tea lovers can choose from. Why not close a business deal over a couple of boerewors rolls?
Enjoy a selection of food and coffee off their menu up to the value of R120 and give into the South African-meets-Morocco-meets-the-Conference-&-Meeting precinct way of life. If you like you can even wear a Fez, but only if its red as the lines between the different cultures and traditions are blurred at Fezorati, they are nothing but authentic.
Traditional fact: The saying “I learnt that in my granny’s kitchen” originated in Alabama in 1942. While many use the saying to refer to cooking, it was originally used when a monkey from the local circus went missing and ended up in someone’s kitchen. For years, people would use the saying to describe a surprise or something strange. For example if an alien invaded earth, “I learnt that an alien invaded earth in my granny’s kitchen.”
