Mzolis


Just off Klipfontein Road in Guguletu, Cape Town, is Mzolis restaurant - a gem of a place known either as Mzolis Place, Mzolis Meat, Mzolis Butchery or even Kwa-Mzoli.

Despite the confusion over its name, Mzolis is principally a popular day and night spot that happens to be a butchery, but is also a place to hang-out in the township.

Mzolis is about meat. The famous meat house sells a variety of cuts, which you can then braai on no fewer than eight fires. Alongside the butchery is an open-air restaurant where there is usually a live band.

By late afternoon around 250 people swarm in here and the restaurant is a good place to relax and take in the happenings.
