But we happened to be invited to dinner at The Sidewalk Café, a place I’d been to try out, but whenever it came to dining out, Vredehoek just never popped up on my mental radar.
Also, I am guilty of often eating at the same places again and again. But that’s I guess what you do when you find reliable, awesome dinner spots.
On that note, I would love to go to Sidewalk Café again. We had such a lovely evening.
But most of all, I have to say that the service was super fast, which is always impressive in Cape Town.
Feast you eyes on what we ate:
For starters I had the Patagonian Calamari with a lemon, rosemary and chilli garlic sauce (R45) and my partner-in-crime had the Prawns in Pastry served with a lemon, apricot and sweet chilli sauces (R55). Both can be had as a main portion. The prawns were a definite winner.
For dessert I had the cake of the day – baked cheesecake (R30) and my partner-in-crime had the chocolate brownie with homemade ice-cream (R35). Both were equally delicious and I love it when a venue makes their own ice-cream.
We drank a bottle of house red, which was unlabelled so I can’t tell you what it was just ask for Sidewalk Red (R90). It was pretty decent... I had had a few other drinks by this stage though...
I reckon this is an awesome ‘FIRST DATE’ spot… and many dates after.
