Cape Town Kurdish restaurant
Kick back in the restaurant sampling traditional Kurdish dishes surrounded by authentic décor and ambiance.
The menu caters breakfast, lunch and dinners, offering unusual and less familier choices that brim with taste and flavour.
Try a Kurdish breakfast laden with a boiled egg, beef sausage, fried tomato, feta cheese, black olives and bread with jam. The Mesopotamia breakfast offers fried eggs with cheese on toasted pita bread. A health breakfast, consisting of fruit salad with yoghurt, nuts and honey, or a selection of croissants can also be ordered if you are a little less adventurous.
Light snacks come in a number of choices and lunchtime or evening dishes with a wide selection. Pizza can be enjoyed with a twist sampling the Pides (Kurdish pizza) and include vegetable, cheese, chicken, lamb as well as lamb, feta and spinach.
Main course dishes such as Iskender (roast lamb on layered pide bread), lamb guvech (lamb cooked with spiced chilli and spinach) and the exotic lamb curry secure an authentic taste of the Middle East.
Round off your meal with tradition desserts such as the oven sutlach (creamy rice pudding) or oven baklava with imported pistachio and walnuts, served with ice-cream or yoghurt.
Relax after dinner enjoying a shisha in the lounge or experience authentic belly dancing or related shows in the inter-leading theatre.
Baron’s Restaurant is a delightful, authentic and mouthwatering experience.
