If South African hospitality has offered you nothing more than a tow to the nearest plattelandse town (if you can call a Wimpie’s hardware and a Tant Flossie’s Doily Emporium a town) and some ice, pronounced i-shhhh; then you got the short end of the biltong stick. Experience South African hospitality that you can really sink your teeth into with today’s deal: Enjoy two beef fillets at Ga Rouge Restaurant and Wine Cellar for R135.
Ga Rouge is lost in time, but in a good way and not so much like the mullet, folk music and tie dye. The restaurant is hosted in the “Here Huis.” This grandiose building was built more than a century and a decade ago, on a piece of historically rich land. Much of the original furnishings and imported building materials can still be seen in this meticulously restored venue. Experience Ga Rouge’s old world charm, without having to actually travel through time. No one should have to go through the last 100 years in history. Twice.
Once you’ve digested Ga Rouge’s incredible setting, you might find yourself famished, which is why you should probably try the Beef Fillets. They taste much better than building material shipped to South Africa over a hundred years ago. Ga Rouge’s tender Beef Fillets are served with parmesan and chive mash, smoked bacon and brown mushroom sauce and honey roasted vegetables. Ga Rouge’s top class hospitality, decadently paired cuisine and classic venue creates a combination that will continue to stand the test of time. Unlike the Macarena.
Fillet Fact: Romanian style Fillet is traditionally prepared by stiletto wearing vampire impersonators. First they tenderise the meat, by whacking it with miniature hockey sticks, before marinating it with a granny B’s sugar cookie basting.
