Halaal food in Jeffreys Bay

Jeffrey’s Bay is known for its surfing waves. Halaal food is not easy to find here but its not impossible. When visiting this town recently I asked my followers on @southafricahalaal for recommendations. Nothing came up for Jeffreys Bay although there were recommendations for places in Port Elizabeth, Knysna and George. I tried Googling it but nothing came up.

On our first day there we visited the KFC but the staff there had no idea what halaal was . We then went to the McDonalds at Fountain Mall. They had a halaal certificate from MJC. On our second day, while driving through the town, we spotted a small takeaway called Fatima’s Food and Spices with a halaal sign. We bought some slap chips from there. They also sell other fast foods and curries.
