It is no secret that I am a HUGE Prashad Café fan!
They have three locations:
Address: Shop 11B, Palmhof Centre, Kloof Street, Gardens
Hours: 11am-9pm Mon-Sat, closed Sundays
Address: Fountain Square, Main Rd, Rondebosch
Hours: 10am-9pm Mon-Sat, closed Sundays
Address: The Ironworks Building, 242 Sir Lowry Rd, Woodstock
Hours: 10:30am-9pm Mon-Sat, closed Sundays
Prashad is a collaboration between mother and son, chef Theresa and manager Krishan Peters, from the famous Maharajah Vegetarian brand. You can catch a quick coffee and snack, or enjoy the robust taste of pure vegan or vegetarian Indian cuisine.
The Woodstock branch is 100% vegan and the other two are vegan and vegetarian.
Although the menus at the Rondebosch and Kloof Street branches are predominantly vegan, the vegetarian options can be beautifully veganised. For example, the kitchen will replace the paneer with tofu in dishes such as their Palak Paneer.
Personally, I can recommend the following dishes (having tried them all!):
- Potata Samosas
- Soya Mince Samosas
- Mixed Veg Breyani
- Palak Paneer
Another incredible “win” is that you can use the Entertainer ZA app for 2-for-1 specials at the Gardens and Rondebosch branches which is an added bonus!
Well worth a visit!
