A few week’s ago I discovered a new gem. It’s called The Base and it’s the newest offering at the The President Hotel in Bantry Bay.
Think woodfired, thin crust, craft pizzas, served next to the pool on a beautiful summer’s day, while sipping on an ice cold beer…
You really don’t get better than that.
At their launch we got to sample a selection of pizzas from The base menu alongside some of the craft beers that will also be available on their new menu.
Pizza toppings include slow-roasted chicken with porcini mushrooms, hot peppered smoked salmon with deep fried capers & crème fraiche, pulled pork with a blush peach compote and more…Now down to the those slices of heavenly deliciousness: The only one I didn’t try was the salmon pizza. Salmon in anything other than sushi or cooked on it’s own just isn’t my thing, but other people seemed to enjoy it.
Overall though, the pizzas I did try were really delicious. I liked the crispy thin crust and the interesting toppings and I’ll definitely be back when the carb attack hits again. Particularly if I need some poolside vibes in my life.
I’m going to give The Base pizzas a solid score of on my Miss K Kiss-o-Meter scale. Price wise you’re looking at between R98 and R135 for a full-sized pizza & to make a reservation you can call them on 021 434 8111 or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
They’re also planning on joining UberEats & OrderIn from early 2018 (so do keep an eye out), but until then, if you’re in the area, you can always place a takeaway order for collection.
