This post covers halaal food in the Garden Route & Sunshine Coast – from George to Grahamstown. It is not a comprehensive list. I have not been to all of these restaurants. Please verify status when visiting.
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.
Besides the above, there is a Fishaways and an Ocean Basket (it does serve alcohol though).
