Dine responsibly at pocket friendly prices from 18 – 24 July 2011
Increasing fuel and electricity prices are no reason to avoid the bustling restaurant scene of Cape Town and the Winelands, especially during StreetSmart Winter Restaurant Week, when some of the region’s finest are offering special menus at affordable prices from 18 – 24 July 2011.
The participating StreetSmart restaurants are in Cape Town, Stellenbosch, Somerset West, Strand Franschhoek, Paarl and Citrusdal.
From Bistro food to fine dining, and even an overnight Winelands stay, StreetSmart Winter Restaurant Week caters for all tastes and budgets. Tuck into delicious 3-course lunches or dinners for anything between R100 and R250 per person at the majority of the participating restaurants. All the offers are well below the usual a la carte prices, but the cost per head and type of menu differs from restaurant to restaurant, with many offering the choice of wine pairings with their StreetSmart winter menu’s. From sushi to sirloin, exotic stir fries and spring rolls to traditional waterblommetjie soup, roast duck and even a meat fondue, StreetSmart Winter Restaurant Week has something for everyone at prices to suit your pocket.
In addition to offering locals great food at affordable prices, StreetSmart Winter Restaurant Week is aimed at making more people aware that it is better to support the wonderful work StreetSmart beneficiary NGO’s are doing to extend a hand to these marginalised youths, than to give money to children living on the streets.
"It is vitally important that the public do not give children money on the street. This will just keep them there. They should rather suggest the child goes to one of the shelters which can really help them," says Margi Biggs, Chairperson of StreetSmart SA.
“We are deeply grateful for all the generous support and contributions each and every restaurant that has joined this initiative has made. It is because of these restaurants that we as an organisation can embark on making the lives of street children better and help to create a safe place for them to go to.” adds Biggs.
Since its inception in June 2005, StreetSmart has raised over R4 million through participating restaurants and private donations all contributing towards social development and educational upliftment projects for street children in their respective areas.
