Nish Nush SA

If you’re looking for delicious Middle Eastern street food in Cape Town, Nish Nush SA is the place to visit. Located next to Hank’s Olde Irish on Bree Street, this hole-in-the-wall hatch serves up shawarmas, falafels, and hummus that will satisfy your cravings.

The Menu of Nish Nush SA

The menu may be simple, but every offering is packed with full-on flavors of the Middle East. Each sabich (sandwich) is a homemade pita filled with tahini, Yemeni zhoug, fresh chopped salad, and succulent beef strips (for the shawarma), all sliced and assembled while you wait. The falafels have already spawned a cult-like following, and these small crunchy balls of perfection come hot, golden, and can be enjoyed in a pita or on a plate with all the trimmings. Another special mention should go to the luxuriously creamy hummus. Order your falafels on a bed of this stuff, and thank us later. They even have 250g take-home tubs of hummus available for dipping, slathering, or just enjoying with a spoon.

The Atmosphere at Nish Nush SA

This place is perfect for a quick yet tasty lunch-hour pitstop or a sneaky snack after drinks. The sunshine-yellow hatch is open for lunch and dinner, Tuesday to Saturday, and offers curbside seating on stools provided or orders to go.


The shawarmas are incredibly delicious, and the falafels are some of the best you’ll ever taste, according to rave reviews. One reviewer even claimed that they had the best falafels they have ever eaten, and they try falafels everywhere they travel.

The Owner of Nish Nush SA

The owner, Ofer Hollinger, is Israeli-born and has dedicated himself to serving the best pita in South Africa.

For authentic and filling Middle Eastern street food, Nish Nush SA is the place to be.
