Irony is going to taste a Winter Tasting Menu on one of the sunniest Winter’s day in Cape Town. 🙂 Rain or sunshine, go and indulge yourself by booking a table at La Mouette in Sea Point and work your way through the 6-or-7-course tasting menu!
Butternut arancini and whipped goat’s milk ricotta
Miso brandade, seaweed, crisp and pickled tapioca
Beef san choy bow, peanuts and coconut
Chicken noodle consommé Crispy shallots, turnip noodles, satay and sprouts
Mushrooms on earth Mushroom soil, black truffle croquette, salt and pepper chestnut.
(Personally, my favourite dish of the day! I am a sucker for the hint of Truffle)
Seared tuna Avocado pureé, tuna tartare, pickled cucumber, dashi jelly and tempura courgette flower.
(Tuna two ways is a treat, but the tuna tartare in the pickled cucumber is packed with flavour!)
Barbequed beef brisket Fermented and confit carrots, mash, cauliflower cheese pureé, smoked marrow crumble.
(This to me shouts Sunday hearty roast! The beef was a soft and tender as you would expect it to be.)
White chocolate egg Coconut cremeux, liquid passion fruit centre, peanut and chilli foam.
(Literally the crème de la crème of all the courses! For me, any tropical fruit like coconut and passion fruit is a winner.)
