||Anatoli, Green Point, Cape Town
People who rent holiday apartments in Cape Town rather than stay in hotels are not ‘locked into’ a hotel menu and can try different kinds of dishes. One of the great things about Cape Town is that it is home to so many different kinds of cuisine, not only South African but from all over the world.
The Anatoli Turkish Restaurant in Greenpoint is a good example. Owner Tayfun Aras and Manager Mesut Dinler make no concessions to being based in Cape Town. They want visitors from holiday apartments, hotels and other places in the city to feel that they are actually visiting Turkey - so authentic is the atmosphere.
Anatoli is housed in a Victorian warehouse dating back to 1904 and has been serving up some of Cape Town's best Turkish food for over 25 years. Contemporary Turkish food is amazingly varied, and you can sample them in over 20 mezes presented to you on oversized trays. Then there are lamb dishes like Incik Kebabi, chicken dishes like Chicken Guvesh and vegetarian dishes like Imam Bayildi. Don’t stay in your holiday apartment when you can enjoy this!
For entertainment, Anatoli also offers you a nargile (hookah waterpipe) around the bar.
Every Saturday night, at around 8pm, you can also see genuine Turkish belly-dancing performed by the nubile Tenille or Tammy - one of the best to be seen in Cape Town. Be sure to write that on your holiday apartment memory board!
