The barefoot kitchen is the newest addition to Ngwenya Glass’s stable. We only found out about it after trying to book for the ever popular Gilroy’s brewery on fathers day. They were fully booked but suggested we try their next door neighbour. With no Zomato reviews to go on I was dubious about whether or not it would be any good but we decided to try it anyway. And I was far from disappointed. The seating area is directly adjacent to Gilroy’s which allows you to enjoy their music without being overpowered by it. It also serves Gilroy’s beer which is a plus.
Service was really great. Our waiter David was witty and entertaining and although rather busy our food came out fast and hot.
Seeing as we were a table of 12 I was really impressed that our meals all came out at the same time and correctly. Not one of us was unhappy with our meal. The food, although all simple and straight forward fare, was extremely tasty and well prepared.
Some of the highlights were the beer battered hake with chips and salad and the beef trinchado. Their chips are cut with the skins and are served with a delicious seasoning salt. They also have beer battered onion rings which are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. The steak, eggs and chips was also really good. Both people who ordered it received their steak and eggs as requested.
If you’re a dessert lover order the hazelnut gateaux. I wasn’t very excited to learn that all the desserts were ice-cream based but this was divine. It was basically like a slice of cake masquerading as ice-cream. It kind of reminded me of those coconut ice-cream lolly’s we used to get from the corner cafe as a child!
Overall a fantastic experience and for a lovely afternoon lunch this place seriously deserves a visit!
