What an amazing honour it was to be chosen to be a part of the tasting panel for Societi Bistro’s Winter Menu. The Bistro does this at the beginning of every season, how awesome is that.
We had absolutely no idea what a gastronomical journey we were letting ourselves in for…knives,forks,pens and paper all ready,anticipating just what the team at Societi Bistro had in store for us. Staring at the page in-front of us we tried to decide what would be our favourite…how naive of us,we loved everything…
Solms Delta was the wines which was used to pair with the feast we would be having.
Where to begin,the start I guess, the Starters presented before us was just amazing,my personal favourite was the Beetroot and Orange Salad,with Sesame seed Deep Fried Goat Cheese,Rocket and Honey whilst my hubby was all to happy with the -Jenna Bruwer- Bone Marrow cooked with Parsley,Capers,Charred Ciabatta.
Their menu really does cater for all tastes the Jenna Mc Arthur-West Coast Mussles,oven Roasted Garlic,Cream,White Wine,Croutes,has a sauce which you really could just bottle and sell.
Having never tried snails,I must admit I was very skeptical,much to my surprise it was delicious,I even had more than 2 mouthfuls. Beautifully presented with pan Bread,Garlic,Lemon,Parsley Butter
Then we moved on Pasta and Rissoto’s,and we were in for a treat. I have never tasted pasta this good,but my personal favourite was the Pumpkin Rissoto so moreish made with Pumpkin Seeds,Sage Butter,Grana Padano . Close 2nd was Kamil’s Spaghetti-Trout,Vodka,Cream,Courgette,Trout Caviar,yummy in my tummy.
They offer 4 more pasta’s one of which is sure to tick all your boxes,check out their menu,they offer starter and main portions sizes.
Onto Mains,we were given a selection of Mains to try and by far the star of the show was the Aimee Eveliegh Vegan Thai Curry,Cauli Rice,Winter Veg,Paw paw Salsa paired with Solms Delta Amalieh. Creamiest curry and every veggie played its role.
For the heavy hitters,they offer the Tony Jackman Karoo Lamb Shank,but make sure you come hungry,its melts it your mouth and literally falls off the bone. Simply tooo damn good!
Another Main that deserve’s a mention is the Tarryn Oppel-Half Free Range Chicken,Crispy Potatoes,Roasted Carrots,Veloute. The Crispiest Skin,I would gladly buy a bag of chicken skin,that’s how good it was. And the Chicken,moist and juicy,a definite must try.
