THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED The Quarter Restaurant Review

: This Cape Town restaurant is named after its specialty, The Quarter (or "bunny chow" as it is more commonly known)---a loaf of bread filled with curry. The dish is a staple of South Africa's Cape Malay cuisine, which blends together culinary influences from Malaysia, India and other southeast Asian counties. Here, diners choose the meat (mutton, chicken, venison, beef or goat), toppings and sauces from a board above the counter to create combinations like gnu served with a turmeric and masala spiced sauce. The chows are available in quarter or half sizes and can be accompanied by sides such as samp (hominy) and beans, and sweet potato mash and gravy.
