The Camissa Brasserie takes comfort food to another level with a hearty and satisfying lunchtime spread designed to thaw the August chill. As always, the indigenous flavours of foraged items from Cape Town’s surrounds give special character to the dishes. Tucked away in the quietness of the cozy Camissa Brasserie, winters luncheons become a beautiful escape from the wind and the bustle outside.
The choices to start are wood roasted Cape Butternut Lasagna or Asian Num Num Duck, a winter inspired dish featuring naartjie citrus relish, candied beetroot and micro-green wonton crisp salad. For mains, diners can choose between a warming Penang Kerri Potjie, which burgeons with the flavours of spiced lamb, sautéed winter vegetables in a secret spice emulsion, or a sustainable seafood plate decked with sea water steamed mussels, wild garlic tamarind prawns and smoked paprika baby chokka. The bold and peppery flavours of handpicked nasturtiums offer a special twist to the fried rice which is topped with lemon leaf cream. There are two choices for dessert. The first is a truly indulgent dark chocolate crème with butter pastry and almond and vanilla bean ice cream. The second is a winter forelle pear tart tatin with Fynbos honey anglaise, naartjie compote and seed and violet brittle.
The set lunch or dinner menu is available at the Camissa Brasserie until the end of August 2017. The cost per head is R275 for a two course meal and R350 for a three course feast. This includes a complimentary glass of wine. Booking is essential on TableBayDining@suninternational.com or 021 406 5988.
