There’s enough prep involved during Easter – what with painting eggs, and arranging Easter Sunday lunches, and so on.
Well, you don’t have to do it all alone. Spend some time with the family at Woodlands – where you’ll find a fine dining selection (or lunch, or brunch, or whatever strikes your fancy). There’s plenty to choose from.
Wok and Roll
How are your tastes? Leaning to the Asian tradition? We love our Kung Fu and Samurai movies – there’s plenty of slicing and dicing at Wok and Roll, too. But it’s sushi and stir-fry that gets the bonsai treatment.
They’re a fairly new restaurant and they’re simply delectable. Aside from the punny title, they’ve been making quite a name for themselves.
So for an Eastern flavour, do yourself and the family a favour and book a table over the Easter weekend.
Heat Grill Room
Are you more carnivorous than a lion hunting antelope? Love delicious steak paired with a suitable bottle of red wine? The Heat Grillroom is a classy joint, perfect for a slightly older family, with an excellent menu selection of steaks and other popular dishes.
You can enjoy speciality dishes such as biltong tempura, crispy deep-fried biltong in a tempura batter and served with sweet chilli. Traditional ribs in a special marinade. Rump espetada, skewered with peppers, onions, and grilled and drizzled with garlic butter. And that’s just a tiny selection of what’s on offer.
You’ll love the ambiance, delight your taste buds on the food, and enjoy the company of your friends and family that much more.
(Did we mention they also serve craft beer?)
Perhaps Portuguese is more your style.
The added spice and the promise of amazing Mozambican prawns is just too much to resist. With a menu that includes spectaculars like the chourico – a spicy pork sausage grilled and then flamed in 1920 brandy right before your eyes – and trinchado, beefy strips in a creamy wine and garlic sauce with a touch of chili, it’s not difficult to see why you might be salivating.
Shellfish, steak, and spicy salads… Portuguese have a flair with their cuisine.
Throw in that relaxing, warm Mediterranean vibe and you’ve got the recipe for a perfect restaurant to rest your hat at.
Long ashore as one of South Africa’s best loved restaurant brands, Ocean Basket is known for its inexpensive, yet top quality, seafood and fish, including line fish of the day. What will it be on Friday or Saturday of the Easter weekend? Only one way to find out.
Light-hearted ambiance and licenced, you’ll be able to enjoy a nice glass of white wine to pair with your choice of fish. It’s known for being very family friendly and relaxed – and there’s so many sea-born dishes to choose from.
It’s quite simply the kind of place that will see you, like the fish served there, hooked.
Mooi Food & Wine
Dit is baie mooi! If you know your Afrikaans, you know that means “It is very nice!” Mooi being South African slang, originating from the more formal meaning, “pretty” or “beautiful”. Mooi is contextual. When “mooi” is used in the context of “Mooi Food & Wine”, it means very nice food and wine.
And there endeth the lesson.
What begins now, though, is an overview of this exciting, very South African eating experience. Mooi has recently opened at Woodlands, providing another option for your Easter holiday eat-out. The food is full of the goodness South Africans love.
Deboned Chicken Thighs with Creamy Peri-Peri is a touch of SA Portuguese. Teriyaki Fried Chicken Waffle is the weirdest thing we’ve ever heard of – but also sounds like a completely wild sensory experience. We’re definitely going to try that. You can get one of our most famous coastline fish, the kingklip, there too.
Then they’ve got Lamb Sosaties, a SA favourite.
Plus a host of gourmet burgers.
Definitely try Mooi Food & Wine out if you haven’t already. If you have, you’ll probably be back for more mooi!
Another of our new restaurants, if you love da Italian, eat da Italian, capisce?
Casa Bella is renowned for its home-made pasta, made with all the love an Italian mama could pour into it. It’s happy, hearty comfort food – perfect now as the temperatures dip down as they have this past week. And it’s going to be, according to weather reports, quite chilly on the weekend evenings.
Comfort food and fuel for the soul will help keep that cold at bay – especially if you enjoy your pasta or pizza with chilli.
Casa Bella wants, like any Italian family who have invited you into their home for dinner, you to eat, eat, eat! And so they give very generous food portions.
Not just pasta…
There’s also grilled food if you’re not up to pasta (personally, though, we need our pasta cravings satisfied fairly regularly). Some things you can enjoy there include Fillet Saltimbocca, a very filling Lamb Shank, and an absolutely delicious Parmesan Crusted Chicken.
Mmmm. So there you go, a couple of nice dining options for you to experience over the Easter holidays. We hope you have a great Easter pay us a visit! Especially if you’re looking to sate your appetite for the finest dining in the area!
