Main Menu

Served between 12h00 and 15h00

  • BEETROOT AND BELRONI GOATʼS CHEESE TART R165

    Beetroot, ash goatʼs cheese, beetroot puree, beetroot kvass, beetroot and tapioca crisps.
    SALT note: Beetroot kvass is a probiotic drink that originated in the Ukraine a long time ago. It is made by fermenting raw beetroots with only salt and water.

    Wine Recommendation: Waterford Estate Grenache.

  • NORWEGIAN SALMON TERRINE R195

    Chenin blanc cured salmon, deep fried capers, horseradish mayo, grilled baby marrow and lemon ricotta.
    SALT note: Himalayan salt was formed over 250 million years ago due to the evaporation of primordial oceans. The ancient sea beds were covered by lava which acted as a natural barrier, and because of this the salt has remained pollutant free and pure all these years.

    Wine Recommendation: Waterford Estate Single Vineyard Chardonnay.

  • HOMEMADE PANCETTA CARBONARA R215

    Crispy pancetta, parmesan crème, chives and homemade spaghetti.
    SALT note: Pancetta is made by curing pork belly for 7 days with a mixture of salt and spices. After the curing process it is hung to dry in the fridge for another 7 days.

    Wine Recommendation: Waterford Kevin Arnold Shiraz.

  • SOUS VIDE DUCK BREAST R295

    Duck breast, confit duck pot sticker, cauliflower puree, bok choi, aubergine and Chinese BBQ sauce.
    SALT note: Confit or “confire” is the term used for preserved food cooked in any liquid. Today it is mostly know for preserving and cooking meat in its own fat.

    Wine Recommendation: Waterford Estate Cabernet Sauvignon.

  • ROAST BEEF PICANHA R315

    Beef picanha, celeriac puree, glazed baby onions, celeriac “pommes Anna”, pickled mustard and jus.
    SALT note: Jus is what is made from the beef stock or drippings. It generally consists of bones, root vegetables and herbs. We cook our stock for approximately 96 hours to release all the natural flavours of the beef. It is then reduced by about 80% to turn into the glossy jus that we use.

    Wine Recommendation: Waterford Kevin Arnold Shiraz.
