Sunday roast at Bertas Basson at the Spice Route , Paarl

Every Sunday through winter and probably through summer, Bertus Basson at Spice Route will be knocking together an amazing four course traditional Sunday roast. I really should be called a feast though, because an abundance of delicious home-style food is brought to your table to devour. Each week the protein component will vary, but you can always expect 2 meat roasts, some side vegetables – with a few gourmet touches of course, a salad course with something fishy. A soup vibe, bread, pate, and to end off with a decadent dessert. The roast potatoes are straight from a heavenly place and look like they have been cooked at least 2 – 3 times to deliver the crunchiest possible skin and fluffy interior imaginable. Actually I would go back for just the roast potatoes. To coat it all – as if it were necessary, there was gravy, there was cheesy kale and hollandaise for the sirloin. I could say there was too much food, but like a rookie I couldn’t resist the brioche toast with pate and onion marmalade and the fresh foccaccio with the cauliflower soup. I suggest nibbling on those and saving yourself fo the main event. I also suggest not eating before or after this meal and taking along stroll to work it off. With beautiful panoramic views from the restaurant, it couldn’t be a better location to while away a Sunday afternoon with family and friends.
