• There are few things most people in the world can agree on – one of them being that there’s nothing quite as scrumptious as biting into a perfectly juicy burger.

    Whether it’s the hands-on factor or the perfect bun-to-filling ratio that gives burgers their satisfying appeal, the Mother City is home to a number of the best halaal burger joints.


    Flame-grilled goodness slathered in a delicious sauce and topped with cheese and a toasted bun. They also offer a range of other burgers, including a crispy chicken burger, all at affordable prices. Head to Wynberg and grab one of their mouth-watering burgers and a side of their newly introduced shakes.

    The Wynburger

    The pumpkin fritter is a Cape Malay favourite, and a popular choice of sweet treat to have on the boeka table during the month of Ramadan. The Wynburger’s innovative founder, Sameer Omer, has managed to create the perfect mashup of savoury and sweet by swapping out the classic buttered bun for two pumpkin fritters topped with a caramel sauce.

    Throw in some kaanget basting, or litchi-infused onion rings for the Boeta ‘O’ burger, and a range of masterpieces were created.

    There’s even a vegetarian option that’s pretty amusingly been named ‘The Rondeposch Burger

    It sounds a little strange, but we guarantee you, it works.
