Capetonians love good food, and while they can’t walk into their favourite eatery, deliveries are now on the menu.
Trade and Industry Minister Ebrahim Patel announced that restaurants are allowed to operate under level 4 restrictions, under the condition they don’t allow sit-down meals, collections and any other action that will undermine social distancing.
Many eateries are making use of app delivery services such as Mr D and UberEats, but some have their own delivery routes.
Check with your local restaurant to confirm how you can get your favourite meal delivered.
