J and I recently took advantage of La Colombe’s midweek winter lunch special and what a treat it was. My goodness. I’ve heard only great things, however the menu and whole experience seriously surpassed my expectations.
The silvermist venue is gorgeous, and together with the superb service and incredible food from beginning to end, we cannot wait to visit them again for their midweek Spring lunch special.
While I’ll share pics of the menu we enjoyed, I won’t go into too much detail, because you truly have to experience it yourself.
Chermoula | Dukkah | Sour Dough
Looks so simple but my gaaawd, the layers of magical flavours and textures in this dipping plate is something dreams are made of. You simply need to break your freshly baked sourdough roll and mop up all the deliciousness.
Prawn | Salmon | Curry | Mustard | Cucumber | Quail Egg | Sweet Potato
With a quirky little surprise 😉
Then we had the option of adding the “Enchanted Forest” dish or rather, food installation, to our meal. As FOMO would allow, we went behind this beautiful velvet green door. What’s behind, it I can’t tell you but expect an experience that will play with all your senses. Enchanting it is. Big ups to conceptual food artist, Caro de Waal, for curating this installation for La Colombe.
Side note, the wine list is extraordinary too. It offers a wide range of wines to suit your personal preference, occasion and budget.
All I can say from the bottom of my heart is that I’m seriously crushing on La Colombe, in a big way.
Keep up the good work dream team!
