Having visited La Mouette previously to experience their tasting experience, we were super excited to be back and try their newly launched Tapas Menu.
They started with the Sunday Tapas on the 5th of November, and I can confirm its going to be a hit.
We sat outside and the weather was too perfect to pass up on it. There wasn’t a plate that we didn’t like. Every morsel was delectable. It was a flavour burst of note and La Mouette didn’t disappoint.
The dishes as small but packs enough flavour and there was enough in each plate for 3 of us to taste every dish.
The idea of Beef dripping wasn’t appealing until Jason dipped a piece of “mosbolletjie” omh yumcious…
My dish of the day was definitely the Herb Gnocchi, pillows of delight. Melt in your mouth.
