The menu will evolve slightly with some dishes being updated but you can always expect 8 plates of utter deliciousness.
Our Menu yesterday was:
Yellowtail Escabeche, pickles and lime labne
Tuna sashimi, black bean salsa, coconut and apple dressing
Coal seared beef tataki, aubergine and Parmesan puree with a cashew nut dukkah
Parsley risotto, red wine reduction, pickled porcini and crème fraiche
Cauliflower and onion soubise, capers and raisins
Pork fillet, roasted apple and crispy copa
Coal seared Blesbok, spicy shitaki mushroom broth and soba noodles
Morrocan lamb rib, homemade ricotta with Hawaji spice
It’s very hard to try to pick a favourite dish as they were all different and delicious, but I loved the tuna with black beans that were like umamai bombs of flavour. The cauliflower was the most loved by everyone at our table. Inspired and layered with texture and complexity.
For dessert I managed to resist my best-ever lemon posset and opted instead for one of Ivors signature desserts – the wild honey and lavender crème with honeycomb and cassia bark ice cream. It was sublime and probably the nicest dessert I can remember eating in a long while. I hope this never goes off the menu.
My friends ate the bon bons (hand-made with various fillings) and delicious cheese board – with cheeses from Culture Club Cheese, mix seed crackers, bread and BBQ pear with verjuice syrup. I mean!
Our relaxed and celebratory lunch finished off with a stroll through the herb garden and more gaping at the beautiful views as the restaurant team celebrated their first full week of service.
This is a must visit restaurant for every body living or visiting the city.
