Diva’s, as a rule, demand only the best of everything. He/she would ask for the Himalaya’s to be painted red if it clashed with his/her socks. If a diva was in a cave and only candles were available he/she would use smoke signals to demand light fittings before asking for help. Sometimes you have to fluff your tail feathers, put on your colourful threads and get your vibe on. Café Chic is going Groupon. Enjoy a three-course meal for two at Café Chic for R250.
Café Chic is a ‘jewel box of culinary delights’. It’s a concept comprising of two gastro-bistro restaurants, a premium Whiskey Bar, Cocktail Lounge, Moroccan chill-out tent, Patisserie corner, exclusive clothing boutique and a menu to salivate over.
Dress your taste buds in one of three starters: Steamed couscous mildly spiced with Colombo curry spices, crowned with Prawns flash fried with French smoked chilli and garlic drizzled with Tom-yum dressing. Alternatively, you could choose the delicious Bruchetta of home baked bread with a light garlic rub topped by a rich tomato and basil concasse layered with Parma Ham and imported hard French Goats cheese. Not forgetting the homemade fish cake pan-fried until golden brown accompanied by fresh garden leaf salad dressed in an Asian dressing, dribble dribble, and then salivate. And to think these goodies are only the starters.
Take your palate party to town and order one of the following main dishes: Bouillabasse, which is a Provencal stew made from cubes of fresh fish slowly simmered in a rich fish broth flavoured with garlic and celery. Or how about that beef pie? The beef is slow cooked in a rich red wine gravy flavoured with Juniper Berries and topped with a golden brown pie crust, all of which rest on a bed of mashed potatoes. The Charcuterie platter of mixed cured European meats which are new to Cape Town and would like to be shown around your digestive system. This platter includes Parma Ham, Coppa, Chorizo and Lomo served with warm oven bread. After Café Chic’s delicious main meal your taste-buddies may never want for anything else.
Before you decide to go and lie-down out in the Moroccan tent to give your stomach a bit of space, don’t forget dessert, it’s the best part no matter how old you are. Warm golden brown crepes smothered in a rich chocolate sauce, yes you read it correctly, it’s smothered in chocolate. Or for those who prefer the savour side of dessert there’s a cheese platter of hard French goats chees served with homemade Fig chutney and crackers. Otherwise just ask your waiter for the dessert of the day. For those who prefer vegetarian the menu consists of the Bruchetta with light garlic rub topped with a rich tomato and basil Concasse, or a fresh garden vegetable risotto.
