Truffle- Review

 

A truffle is an exquisite, priceless delicacy and so is the restaurant Truffle.  One of the only upmarket fully-halaal restaurants in Cape Town, Truffle has made quite a name for itself amongst the Muslim and non-Muslim community.

Although the name itself makes it sound like a stuffy affair, Truffle offers both an elegant atmosphere, which offers customers the opportunity to dress to the nines, but also a friendly atmosphere, which makes Truffle the perfect venue for family gathering during Eid, business meetings during lunch and a meeting place for the younger generation.

Truffle’s menu holds its name to a high standard with food options such as Cajun Calamari, an array of tasty burger options, refreshingly fruity mocktails and dreamy creamy milkshakes. To top the menu off they also offer- yes, you guessed it, chocolate Truffles to end off your meal.

Tip: Make use of Truffles swanky atmosphere to host birthday dinners, Eid celebrations or for a romantic dinner with the added ease of a fully-halaal setting.

The Pearl Spoon- Review

 

The Pearl Spoon is what some might call a ‘hidden Southern Suburbs gem’.  It is perfect for brunch with the girls, a family Saturday lunch after shopping or for a light meal after a long day. The menu is somewhat pricey, but the atmosphere, food and setting make up for it.

The menu is quite classy ranging from breakfasts such as poached eggs, offering such as rye toast, flourless chocolate cake, steaks, gourmet croissants and specialities such as coconut bread.

According to many reviews and comments, allegedly, service seems to be slow and the fact that bookings can’t be made makes for an annoying waiting period during busy times.

Tip:  Make sure to go a bit early when meeting up in groups to grab a table as tables are filled quickly. The portions are generous but the menu is pricier than other places.

The Atlantic Express ( Blue train) – Review

 

We all have days where we’d like to escape to a cosy restaurant tucked away from everyone and everything, and how lovely would it be if this escape was in the form of an antique train turned quaint eatery? The Atlantic Express cake and coffee train, fondly known as the ‘Blue Train’, is set on an antique, long-distance train. The restaurant is very small so it is best to visit earlier during the day if you’re not too keen on closed spaces.

Besides that, the Blue Train is perfect for casual meet-ups with friends and family outings as kids will love eating on a train! Small booths are set up on each side of the train with windows next to each booth, overlooking ocean scenery. The food ranges from lunch favourites such as their toasted chicken mayo sandwiches to burgers and even steak for a lovely dinner option.  Overall, having a meal there will offer you an escape after a long day and a lovely meal with a cosy setting. Better yet, the beach is only a 5- minute, walk away.
