Claremont Burgers restaurant
Why write about a burger joint? It doesn't seem so odd if the burgers are more like a work of art than a meal.
3rd Hudsons are really onto a recipe for success. Great service, great portions and great fresh ingredients is at the order of the day. The best ground meats are selected and it is claimed to contain more than 20 % less fat than normal. The toppings are freshly made as well and include traditional favourites as well as more exciting options. Be sure to try the mint and jalapeno salsa, in itself an explosion of flavours. How does a perfectly cooked patty topped with tomato relish, biltong dust, chilli cream cheese and sliced battered jalapeno rings sound? Too good to be true? Not here.
The relaxed sense of humor on the menu is very refreshing and the Ba-rack-o-lama, or La Di Dah (with ostrich meat) are examples of this. For vegetarians they offer a delicious chick pea and lentil burger with fresh goat's cheese and avo.
This is a must-try and must-repeat experience.
Strand Fine Dining restaurant
Alex Garden Restaurant is situated close to the beach and offers a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of this popular seaside town.
The historical building, indigenous garden and the exquisite decor combine to create an extra special dining experience.
The menu is small but does not disappoint with starters like seared kudu carpaccio drizzled with mustard dressing and served with parmesan shavings and tomato concassé, and a twice baked goats cheese soufflé with a homemade tomato chutney. The tempura prawns with chilli mayonnaise and ginger and butternut soup with croutons are also not to be missed.
Try your palate at some game with the pan-fried blesbok rolled in mixed peppercorns with a juniper berry sauce. The panfried sole in a foamy butter sauce with lemon and parsley is a real melt-in-your-mouth option. A more traditional option is the vegetarian lasagne, rich in flavour and extremely decadent.
Good food, a great setting and reasonable prices can be found here.
