Foxcroft Constantia – Take 2

img_6009

Having already visited, the newly opened Foxcroft Constantia, for lunch and sampling 75% of the menu on that occasions it was simply a must to go and try the balance of their menu.

We decided on  a mid-week dinner and arriving fairly early we were seated in the bakery area and if given the choice again I think they might be the best seats in the house for an intimate dinner.

The place fills up fairly quickly, but this is to be expected, so be sure to make your reservations well ahead of time.

For the dinner seating they still offer the A La Carte Menu but its set up a little differently for R350 per person, you get to select any 2 tapas; 1 main and 1 dessert. We certainly thought it was worth it and really good value for money.

So this time round we tried the following.

Tapas

Mussels – Bacon, confit Lemon, Soubise

Tempura Prawns – Tom ka gai emulsion

Korean Fried Chicken – Buttermilk Espuma

Smoked Pig’s Head croquettes – Curried Sultana, Piccalilli, Crème Fraiche

***

Mains

Slow-cooked Lamb’s Leg – White bean hummus, smoked Garlic, Black Olive, minted Potatoes

Risotto – Cauliflower and Camembert, Celery Leaf, Salsa Verde

***

Dessert

The Cheese Room – a selection of Cheese

Elderflower Doughnuts – Litchi Milk Ice, Raspberries

Everything was superb, but now having tried out 100% of the menu our favourites are:
