Asoka Dinner Special: R195 For Three Courses

The special R195 for a three-course dinner
About Asoka Set under the eaves of a revamped Victorian-era house, Asoka is an ambient bar and restaurant built around a 150-year-old, fairy-lit olive tree on Kloof Street. The eclectic décor provides the perfect setting for an evening of decadent food and drinks.
Tuesday Jazz Nights, when Mr Keys & The Funky Munks take to the stage for a two-hour set, are sold-out affairs. But, rest assured, the cool cocktails and lip-smacking sharing plates (inspired by earth, water, wind, fire and nirvana) are equally as indulgent on other nights!

The special R175 for two courses; R195 for three courses
About Kloof Street House Housed in a 20th-century Victorian-era house, this cool courtyard restaurant, set back from the bustling high street, is like stepping into the pages of The Great Gatsby. Twinkling fairy lights and velvet cushions line the garden area, while inside warm lighting and eclectic decor create a cosy-chic atmosphere, making this one of Kloof Street’s sexiest haunts for a special occasion, date night or a no-excuses-needed meal with family and friends.
This summer, you’ll have two more reasons to visit: the two- and three-course seasonal lunch specials for R175 and R195 respectively! Pan-fried Patagonian calamari, with aioli and harissa; and a lentil-and-artichoke bake served with cumin-carrot purée, avo, onion bhaji and balsamic reduction are just two of the options available.

The special R65 per plate
About As its name implies, Protégé provides young chefs an opportunity to hone their skills under the eyes of a skilled maestro. Situated at Le Quartier Français, the restaurant (designed by Rotem Shachar and Megan Bon) is arranged around a central show kitchen, with alfresco dining areas at both ends. Proprietor Scot Kirton (who also co-owns La Colombe, La Petite Colombe, Foxcroft and Epice) wanted to create a space that locals could call home, while enjoying top-quality, seasonally driven comfort food.
What’s on the menu? An array of tantalising small plates, such as chargrilled sourdough, spiced chicken drippings, biltong and olives; umami or champagne-poached oysters; edamame beans with sriracha and sesame; Korean-fried chicken; Asian pork roti; gamefish sashimi with coconut, shallot sambal and crispy leek; steamed mussels in a spicy Thai broth; wagyu potsticker; beetroot tart; and pea risotto. For dessert, there’s salted chocolate with cocoa nibs and passionfruit, or berries, waffles, tonka and lime.
Drinks The drinks (also R65 a glass) include a house G&T, as well as Kloof Street Chenin Blanc and Kloof Street Swartland Rouge.
