Starters, Steaks And Freak Shakes At The Hookup Lounge
Enjoy a variety of hookah flavours and mocktails at your table
Check out these halaal restaurants, from fine dining to iconic takeaway spots.
The Hookup Lounge in Wynberg has a fully halaal menu complete with freak shakes and mocktails to drink and budget-friendly hookah pipes.
A NEW RESTAURANT TO TRY ON OTTERY ROAD
On the corner of Ross and Ottery Road, Redah Peterson opened a fully halaal steakhouse and bar in December 2019.
It's just a little way down from Cosy Corner and Aneesas who are known for their takeways, while the Hookup Lounge is the perfect spot to sit down, spend time with friends and family, and enjoy an occasional hubbly bubbly.
Even Cape Town's favourtie rapper YoungstaCPT stopped by.
WHAT DOES THE HOOKUP LOUNGE BRING TO THE OTTERY ROAD OFFERING
Order a hookah pipe and take your pick from a variety of flavours - including mint, apple, kiwi and watermelon - for only R70 per hookah or R100 for two from Monday to Thursday.
The bar section of the halaal steakhouse serves mocktails like the Nojito and Cosmo Crush, and all mocktails are R40. If you'd prefer something a little more indulgent, there are freak shakes (aka gourmet milkshakes - yum) on offer. Try the strawberrt cheesecake flavour (it's a crowd favourite) or the apple crumble, salted popcorn, or blueberry muffin (all R65).
A MEAT LOVER'S DREAM
For lunch and dinner, their grills are the speciality, from flame-grilled chicken and beef burgers to the classic T-bone, ribeye, sirloin and fillet steak. Prices range from R69-R155 and all main orders come with a side of deep-fried onion rings or fries, uniquely spiced with their signature mix. Lighter options include jalapeno half-moons (R69), Sriracha wings (R110), or toasted sandwiches served with fries (R45-R90).
All meals are available for takeaway (staying true to that Ottery Road tradition), if you're willing to miss out on the fun of a pipe at your table.
