This South African restaurant celebrates the spirit of braai

As the sun set, you had this wonderful, communal meal, course after course of whatever was ready to be consumed; a plethora of textures and dishes, with a common underpinning of charcoal flavour. It was a very convivial experience, which is what Haroun and Shamiema are trying to celebrate in their small restaurant on Bloor West…
