Cost: R175 for 2-courses, R198 for 3-courses (including a glass of wine)
The upcoming months in the Cape call for modern comfort food and satisfyingly earthy flavours. With an inviting fireplace and warm, knowledgeable service, Terroir situated on the Kleine Zalze estate offers foodies that rare thing in winter: a real deal.
Regulars and newcomers to this award-winning restaurant can take advantage of Michael Broughton’s Winter Special menu featuring the likes of seared salmon on Puy lentils with Thai green curry flavours and bacon foam or tempura-style caramel and ginger calamari with yuzu mayo, spicy tomato jam and fresh pea shoots.
The mains, including a classic beef fillet with all the trimmings, are deliciously generous while desserts such as baked banana savarin with white chocolate ice cream, cherry coulis and pistachio are suitably decadent without being too sweet.
Offered from Monday to Saturday at lunch and dinner, the winter special is available from now until the end of September.
‘Winter brings a welcome change of pace and, of course, a different style of cooking – everybody in the kitchen loves it,’ says Michael Broughton. 'Our Winter Special is aimed at our loyal local following and is also there to encourage people to experience the restaurant for the first time'.
The Winter Special includes a choice of three starters, three mains, two desserts and a cheese board, with dishes changing according to seasonal availability of ingredients.
Unlike the rising price of petrol, the price of the menu will delight anyone who appreciates quality and value for money. Two courses costs only R175, three courses costs a reasonable R198. Both deals include a complimentary glass of award-winning Kleine Zalze wine.
The Winter Special is in no way a dumbed-down version of Terroir’s signature a la carte chalkboard menu that is available throughout the year.
The special may be ordered by tables of eight or less guests, and is available from now until 30 September 2012 from Monday to Saturday at lunch and dinner (excludes Sunday lunch).
Hot diggidy, doesn't this sound good?!
