We read many positive comments and saw its high rating on tripadvisor so we decided to give it a try. It's a great decision! We tasted super delicious burgers (we ordered 3 of their burgers takeaway). The deco is very artistic and you could enjoy the food, away from Jonker's crowd. Very Zen. However, the price is relatively higher.

Once you step inside you are part of another world, artworks decorate this inspirational space. They have a simple menu offering a choice of unusual burgers that are inexpensive and tasty. The staff are very welcoming and it is a place not to be missed .... Hope u find it xxxx

The works burger was ridiculously tall, stuffed with very carefully prepared ingredients, superb chips, even the lemongrass tea was above average. The house is also a delight. Staff is a bit full of themselves, and lose the dog hanging out in the customer area begging for food. Okay, it's a gorgeous dog.

We were extremely starving when we arrived Malaaca. We head straight to this place. Their burgers are awesome. It is a cozy place with a great ambience. It is an old house converted into a art and chill place - worth to check it out when you are there. They don't offer dinners, so be sure to come by during... More

The restaurant was quite busy, so we waited for a table and checked out the photo exhibition in the foyer which was quite beautiful. A table was not long becoming available. We ordered the Oriental Chicken Burger and The Aloha Burger. We were expecting more of a chicken fillet for the oriental burger, the pattie was made up of chicken... More

We stopped for lunch at the Baboon House during a day of sightseeing. It has a great ambience and burgers to match! The old converted house has been turned into a cool space with great art and a chilled vibe! You have to ring the doorbell to be let in.
