Table Bay Hotel’s Camissa – The new social hotspot this summer
You’ve seen the splendour of Cape Town, heard its lively beat and felt the warmth of its people. Now complete the experience by tasting the best the region has to offer at our newest food adventure – the Camissa brasserie.
The brasserie is named after the Khoisan word for Cape Town, offers diners a relaxing and sensory experience while overlooking the busy, working harbour inside the scenic V&A Waterfront. Camissa also includes a separate wine bar and wine tasting room and an elegant private dining space for those special occasions.
Our Executive Chef, Jocelyn Myers-Adams has pulled out all the stops with her locallyinspired and sourced menu. The focus is on a holistic approach to food, using the finest, freshest ingredients sourced from local farmers. Food is presented in beautifully simple dishes where home-grown flavours shine and we cannot wait for you to taste it for yourself.
At Camissa we invite you to indulge in mouth-watering dishes like: Willow creek olive, fennel and lemon tapenade with cornbread crisps; Rooibos tea smoked Franschhoek trout with watercress, radish, celeriac and apple, hibiscus vinaigrette and Oscar lager braised Karan beef short rib with parsnip puree, local porcinis and rainbow asparagus.
Complementing the menu is a wine list that captures the very essence of the Cape and its Winelands regions. The extensive list of local wines will find favour with all tastes, ranging from full-bodied mature wines to lighter, more youthful ones, from established to small niche local wineries.
Camissa offers a gourmet experience that takes local flavour to a new level of excellence. Our doors open on 12 December 2013 and operating hours from 11h00 to 15h30 18h00 to 22h30 Monday to Sunday, and we look forward to welcoming you! Please call us to book your spot.
Wholesome, hearty food stars in the autumn menu at Camissa Brasserie, Table Bay Hotel
The new autumn menu at Camissa Brasserie at the iconic Table Bay hotel is a food-lovers delight. With a simple selection of delicious, heart-warming dishes that showcase the best of traditional South African fare, it’s relaxed, wholesome eating at its best.
“We are taking South African products and favourites from family menus, and dusting them off and giving them new life. The idea is not to play with the food too much. At Camissa we focus on sourcing quality local ingredients and we keep our food simple and elegant,” says Executive Chef, Jocelyn Myers-Adams.
The new autumn menu features braised meats, homemade pastas and decadent desserts. The crowd-pleasing biltong spiced Karan beef Carpaccio remains on the menu with seasonal autumn accompaniments of crisp red cabbage dressed lightly with aromatics and a delicious hibiscus vinaigrette.
Other favourites are likely to be the Karoo lamb shank with sweet corn pap and Camissa red wine jus and The Table Bay signature cheesecake. The delicious cheesecake is presented in colourful layers to represent Cape Town and the ‘rainbow nation’ and according to Myers-Adams, is the best cheesecake recipe she has ever tasted.
To complete the ultimate food and wine pairing experience diners can browse the impressive range of local wine, including their own blend, housed in the restaurant’s beautiful walk-in wine room. There is surely no better way to while away a chilly winter’s day in the Cape.
