This was our third time in the Mother City of South Africa, Cape Town. To recover from jet lag, we lazed around for 3 days in an apartment at Green Point within easy walking distance of the Waterfront and the City. The weather was perfect.
We looked forward to a glass of cold local wine while listening to live African music at the Waterfront in the evenings. But top of our do-list was lunch at the Biesmiellah Restaurant in Bo-Kaap (Malay Town) for a delicious Cape Malay Breedie made with fresh tomatoes and lamb, slowly cooked with spices.
