The winning KOEsister will not only walk away with the inaugural title of Kwaiest KOEsister and a grand prize, but chef Naseer has pledged to purchase fresh KOEsisters from the winner to serve in the OUIBar + KTCHN at RED every Sunday morning between 10am and 12pm. “The humble KOEsister has everything needed to bring about world peace…so why not spread a little love where we can?!” he says. From September 1, RED will also be introducing the Cape Town Corner, a specialty menu of five Cape-Malay-inspired dishes that will have locals as well as international guests begging for more. “Think bobotie, briyani and masala steak…need I say more?” adds Naseer.
