Brunch, lunch, snack, whatever you call it- lunch is definitely the absolute best meal of the day! That’s why we thought it would be a great idea to whip up some of our favorite lunches that are currently available at some of the Constantia wine farms in Cape Town. As a wise man once said, lunch hour is the best hour of the day, and we couldn’t agree more! So stay tuned and squiz through some of these mouthwatering dishes:
Our favorite pick at this beautiful wine farm was the Grilled Carrot, Cardamom & Coriander risotto, with parsley, walnut and feat | R140. Winter and Summer all in one dish!
If you are looking for a light, simple, but delicious lunch – look no further than Chef Archie Maclean’s new One Course Lunch Special which will be available from 1 September 2017 (perfect timing for that Springtime brunch!). Have a look at the menu here
SilverMist | Green Vine Eatery
If a slightly healthier option for your lunch is what you are looking for(since Summer is JUST around the corner) then the Oh So Boho (vegan) salad is just for you! With quinoa, dressed rocket, toasted pumpkin & seasonal roast veg, this salad just screams summer lovin’. Served with a Basil Pesto Dressing| R85
If you are looking for a more wholesome lunch to share, then the Farm style platters are the right pick- Local Wine| Cheese & Charcuterie- utter perfection! Prices range from R135-R180.
Groot Constantia| Jonkerhuis
Jonkershuis boasts a diversity of locations from private dining grandeur, to intimate interior fire side dining; typical Italian village gatherings in the covered courtyard to family style lunches on their front lawns, where children can safely play amongst the old oak trees.
Whats more South African than an Oven Baked Babotie? Served with spiced beef, custard egg, sultana & almond turmeric rice and cinnamon butternut | R118
If you are feeling slightly more peckish, then The Estate Tasting Plate is definitely for you. This platter is designed to have a taste of everything with oven baked babotie, karoo lamb curry, chicken breast curry and an angry beef samosa. Served with sultana & almond turmeric rice | oven baked cinnamon butternut | quick fried poppadum
And finally, from the Jonkerhuis, we have the Grilled Beef Burger. No lunch list is complete without a big, fat, juicy burger on it! Served with sriracha mayo | fries | R92
Groot Constantia | Simon’s Restaurant
If it’s something light, yet still vibrant that you are looking for, look no further than these Fresh Black Mussels served with cream, white wine and a selection of fresh herbs | R75. Yum!
That’s a wrap! We hope that you enjoyed reading through some of our top picks for your next lunch date and we will be sure to see you on our next wine tour, where you could order some of these delectable dishes as part of your package.
