Every year, Cape Town boasts the most magnificent assortment of restaurants who excel in their rendition of a “traditional South African” Christmas lunch. A hands-on Christmas Day lunch isn’t for everybody. Some of us like to take the opportunity to sit back, relax, and enjoy a completely fuss-free (and delicious) meal with our families.
