What better way to enjoy the rich Cape Malay culture in Cape Town than with a koesister and a cup of tea? No koesister? No problem! Cape Town’s Dial-A-Koesister have combined tradition with technology to bring you a fresh koesister delivery service right to your door – what a time to be alive!
Started by two young cousins, Abdurageem Randal and Juwayda Daniels, the company offers convenience and quality desserts for a fair price. The koesister – not to be confused with the koeksister – is a spicy doughnut which is fried, dunked in syrup and then dusted with desiccated coconut. Dial-A-Koesister uses a traditional recipe with a twist to make the doughnuts unique and tasty. When prepared correctly, they are light, fluffy, balanced and perfect for morning or afternoon tea.
It is somewhat traditional that children in Cape Malay families are often sent to fetch fresh koesisters from a local baker in the area and this is where Dial-A-Koesister was born. Randal says that his family would argue every Saturday night about which one of them would get up early to fetch the koesisters the next day and he figured that this must be common issue amongst other families as well. He got the whole family involved and set up this genius delivery service.
At just three months old, the business is expanding quickly as it offers delivery all around Cape Town, from Wynberg, through the southern suburbs and to town. Delivery service to the northern suburbs is currently on hold but will resume once the business is able to keep up with the demand.
