South Africa celebrates Heritage Day

On Saturday 24 September South Africans celebrate Heritage Day, a public holiday that acknowledges the various cultures living in our country.

Locals celebrate Heritage Day in various ways:
*. Having a Braai (barbecue), so popular that the name given to this public holiday by locals is ‘National Braai Day’. Boerewors (a popular sausage), chops, braaibroodjies (cheese and tomato sandwich toasted on the fire), potjiekos (stew prepared in an iron pot), and pap (mielie meal porridge) are traditionally eaten.
*. Wearing traditional dress to work or when going out
*. Visiting museums to learn more about the history and culture of our country.
 
Labotessa’s new Café & Terrace Menu offers a traditional local Cape Malay Bobotie dish, made with mince, curry, raisins, and an egg and milk topping. It is served with yellow rice and salad.
