Lekker by die see



Lunch at die Strandloper in Langebaan, is more than just lunch. It's 10 courses of freshly cooked seafood. Mussels, Angelfish, Hottentot,  Kreef (crayfish) farm style bread and homemade preserves are just some of the delicious things that I will be tucking in to today. It's just plain paradise. So as I sit here, with my toes in the sand,  the smell of garlic butter and mussels wafting in the air, and the dulcet sounds of the resident crooner and his interpretations of classics like, "no woman no Braai ", all I can think is why don't we do this everyday?


Three hours later, I'm quite relieved we don't eat a 10 course meal every day, because we practically rolled out there.
But do yourself a favour, it is worth it to trek out there.. Every course was delicious, homemade and authentically South Africa, from the braaied Snoek and "asbrood" ("ash bread" - bread cooked on the fire) to the lamb waterblommetjie Bredie (traditional pond flower stew) finished off with "vetkoek" (twisted donuts soaked in syrup) and rooibos tea.


Divine!
