There’s nothing better than a braai in summer – particularly if you’re not the one slaving over hot coals (and washing the dishes after your guests have left). Add the quiet, relaxed atmosphere of the charming Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel’s Oasis Bistro as your setting, and your Saturday afternoon is sorted.
So what’s on the menu?
The Saturday Lunchtime Braai – which runs from 12.30pm until 3pm – begins with a cold buffet, complete with a selection of home-baked breads, pickled tongue with slaphakskeentjies (traditional Cape onion salad), chorizo, biltong and droewors, springbok carpaccio and charred chicken thighs. Also on offer are freshly shucked oysters, smoked trout, mussels, prawn salad, seared tuna and pickled fish, as well as an array of fresh sides such as curried cauliflower and chickpea, beetroot and brinjal, prawn tabbouleh and Caprese salad.
Hot off the coals guests can expect sirloin steak, lamb cutlets, pork spare ribs, home-made boerewors, per-peri chicken thighs, salted lamb ribs, venison potjie, sosaties and freshly caught snoek and linefish.
And, in true South African spirit, there will be chargrilled mielies, garlic bread and braai broodjies (traditional onion-and-tomato braai sandwiches) – and chilled CBC and Jack Black Draught lagers and pilsners to wash it all down.
End your luncheon on a sweet note by tucking into sweet treats such as trifle, ice-cream coupes, crème caramel, pavlova and malva pudding. The cost of the braai is R380 per person.
Depending on the wind factor, braais take place either on the hotel’s lawns or Oasis Bistro’s delightful terrace. And while the pool is not available for use on the day, there is a supervised kids club, if required.
Oasis Bistro is known for its delicious lunches and wonderful views overlooking lush gardens, making it a truly special place to enjoy a memorable meal. So, enter now, and stand a chance to win this braai for four.
