Delaire Graff Estate, a Saturday lunch.

Going up the long drive way is definitely impressive when you enter this spectacular wine estate. The WoW Factor is def there!! Check www.delaire.co.za for stunning pics. Somehow I forgot to take pictures of the estate, probably because I was in awe!! The restaurant is beautifully decorated with African arts and features a MASSIVE fire place . Again, my English is not sufficient to exactly describe the amazing room. In my newsletter this month I’ve put it as my favorite for the month. We had a 3 course lunch which was maybe a bit over the top but hey, you don’t drive all the way out here to nibble some biscuits and have a soup so we had proper lunch. Starting off with peppered seared Tuna (always my favorite) and Squid with sweet corn flan, quite unusual and both delicious. The Sirloin I had to send back the first time. Sorry, I don’t do medium to well, I like my meat RARE (like my friend says: take of the horns, wipe it’s … and slap it on the plate!!) That’s it. Second time ’round meat was perfect, loved the beetroot mash and everything else on the plate. My vanilla creme brule was not tops. Too watery to my liking and not enough vanilla flavour. Service was excellent, very nice, easygoing, yet professional. Not over the top, which is cool. We didn’t understand the prices for Capuccino and tea: 30 resp. 40 rand per cup!! And that’s without a truffle…

After lunch we popped in at Tokare Deli. Also a nice place!! Especially for families with kids. It’s one big play ground and you can relax in the very very comfortable couches. It was hard to get going again…

Obviously I had to get  their olive oil YAM!!

Saturday afternoon well spend!!
