About The Happy Uncles

Cuisine: Fine Dining

Happy Uncles: A Halaal Fine-Dining Restaurant

An exciting halaal addition to Cape Town’s burgeoning foodscape.

It’s not often that fine-dining and halaal go together, in fact Happy Uncles is a first for the Cape Town restaurant scene. The chic open-plan restaurant in the semi-industrial, urban renewal district of Salt River is the dream of chef Anwar Abdullatief (with co-owners Riedaa Manie and Fuad de Vries). Their business started as a production kitchen catering for events, before opening as a fine-dining restaurant in the first half of 2022.

Anwar gained his kitchen credentials at the likes of Cavalli, Jordan, Siba’s Restaurant and Rupert & Rothschild. All his fine dining experience is expressed here in fully halaal form, in chef’s tasting menus of 4-, 6- or 8- courses, with all the exquisite presentation, flavour flourishes, and theatrics you’d expect of fine-dining, naturally without pork or alcohol.

Savour complex and beautifully plated dishes such as charred broccolini with pesto, avocado, edamame and wild mushroom tea; west coast squid with dune spinach and smoked mussel velouté; aged beef sirloin with spiced bone marrow, and more, each menu complete with canapé and palate cleanser in true fine-dining special occasion style.
