This post is really just aimed at making everybody very hungry this morning… cause I’m evil like that…
But yes, one of my favourite Cape Town dining spots, La Mouette, has launched their Spring Tasting Menu which will be available until the end of October and it definitely sounds like a goodie.
What’s the deal? 6 courses for only R185:
- Course 1: Mezze
Goat’s cheese croquette, falafel, tabouleh, smoked aubergine puree, grilled courgette and sumac
- Course 2: Caramelized onion soup
Brioche croutons and fontina tortellini
- Course 3: Soft poached egg
Grilled asparagus, barley, béarnaise relish and parmesan broth
Pan fried line fish
Chickpea puree, red pepper emulsion, raisins, calamari, baby spinach and smoked paprika
- Course 4: Confit shoulder of lamb
Spiced yoghurt, pea puree, carrot emulsion and pan fried gnocchi
Tempura vegetables, smoked butter, chili and lime dressing
- Course 5: ‘Waldorf’
Gorgonzola croquettes, celeriac puree, marinated grapes, radish and pickled apple
- Course 6: Spiced coconut panna cotta
Coconut crumble, passion fruit puree, pineapple foam, tamarind granita and toasted cashew nuts
The Tasting menu is available for the whole table only.
Sound good? Of course it does… think I’m gonna have to go spoil my belly with some springtime happiness soon.
To further tempt you, here’s a little “foodporn” collage from previous tasting menus I have personally worked my way through:
