BBQ of the special art at Strandloper
The “Strandloper”, a Native tribe of Cape Town, is the perfect name for this particular restaurant on the long ranging beach in South Africa, about 125 kilometers from Cape Town. At first glance, a trip from the KiteWorldWide Mansion in Cape Town seems a little far for dinner, but do not worry it’s worth it!
Following the motto “attention to detail” here the local chefs do a ten-course meal with a twist: homemade bread, fresh caught fish, African jam … And in an abundant amount. Here you will be sure to have a good time.
In all simplicity, the local chefs conjure the true delicacies from their plain pots to their impressively creative wood-fired grills and tons that have been cooked in furnaces. Mussels, homemade bread, fish until you can drop … the taste is definitely only once busy! And to top it off, the ten courses take place while overlooking a stunning lagoon..
Not just food, but also kiting
Good thing there is the opportunity to do sports. The lagoon is not only the perfect setting for a wonderful dinner in the open air, but also the ideal spot for kiting. And really, what could be better than a cold beer and delicious all-you-can-eat meal after a windy kite surfing session?
The ambiance::Das Ambiente: stylish, rustic and charming
The “establishment” in the open-air restaurant is charming and rather rustic. Everything revolves around the theme of water – it’s all about the sea. Sun decorate buoys, fishing nets, and shells. Cutlery and usual table manners are overrated, here it’s all about paper plates and eaten mostly with hands. A mussel is incidentally also a popular dining tool. And for the soul there is local guitar music throughout the evening. With the sun setting, you can enjoy it with a cup of Moerkoffie (traditional African coffee) in your hands …. Marvelous!
