Enjoy a long leisurely lunch with Salsify Sundays
Sunday lunch is an institution – something done around the world where families and friends sit together and enjoy a leisurely meal.
As one of Cape Town’s most scenic restaurants – in Camps Bay at The Roundhouse – Salsify is perfectly poised to offer the ideal Sunday lunch location. Good news then that Chef Ryan Cole has launched Salsify Sundays.
Salsify’s enviable location suits Ryan perfectly – having grown up in a fishing household, the ocean was an integral part of his childhood, so being in close proximity to the sea in inspires and informs the menu. Despite the fact that the Sunday lunch tradition was never a staple in the Cole family – the fishing lifestyle is a pragmatic one and an everyday job. “We never really had a family that was into Sunday lunches. My mother was also never really a good cook, so we more looked forward to the homemade Swiss roll,” he says.
As a result, the concept behind Salsify’s Sunday Lunch was born not from a memory as much as a re-imagination, inspired by the notion of what a perfect Sunday should be. “I want Salsify Sundays to be a call to gather, to laugh, to enjoy! It’s about celebrating friends, family, food, and unity,” says Cole.
Salsify’s Sunday lunch offers a five-course menu, with or without a wine pairing, featuring starters including fire-roasted pumpkin bread with lovage butter and pumpkin seed crumb, beef tartar and a Salsify fish braai, mains including dishes like roast baby chicken with bread sauce dumplings, and beef fillet with onion tarte tatin and roast carrot, and desserts such as decadent dark chocolate soufflé with a yoghurt sorbet. The menu will change, so come ready to be surprised and satisfied.
The Salsify Sunday Menu is R695 per person for the lunch with an additional R550 for the wine pairing option.
