My name is Robyn and I am an addict. It has been 10 days since my last bowl of croquettes and I don’t think I can last much longer. Look, I don’t mean to be reductionist. The menu at La Mouette restaurant in Sea Point is extensive and utterly delicious. But by far the most delicious thing I may have ever eaten in my life, is their cheese and truffle oil croquettes. I die for them.
La Mouette is owned by Chef Henry Vigar, together with his charming wife Mari Vigar and business partner Gerrit Bruwer. Chef Henry is from England where I ate his food at Kensington Place on many a Sunday in the 2000’s when I lived in Notting Hill. Mari managed to drag him to South Africa, thankfully, and she mans the social media which has become the easiest way to get a booking in town.
One of the real delights of eating at La Mouette restaurant is that they offer a tasting menu for the princely sum of R185. That’s for six courses of tasty treats. If you want to do a wine pairing menu, you can pay R295 and get a small glass of the best possible wine to go along with your course. I have eaten both the April and May 2013 tasting menu and it is the best fun I have had with food for some time. Don’t miss out. Make it a monthly visit. Or more often if, like me, you can’t get enough of the croquettes.
