In an effort to make your dining experience a whole lot more fun, Steenberg Executive Chef Kerry Kilpin has a few tricks up her sleeve with her #DiscoverTaste complimentary surprises at Catharina’s Restaurant until the end of April. And if you think it’s easy, think again. You will have to sort through all five senses meticulously to figure out what exotic ingredient Kilpin has added to your food or drinks.

Her plan is to take you on a mystery tour of exotic flavours and ingredients to excite your palate. Known for her love of adding a touch of Asian flair to her food, Kilpin has stepped up her sense of adventure by delighting Catharina’s lunch and dinner guests with complimentary mystery tastes.

Guests must use all 5 senses to uncover the secret ingredient.

You can expect bursts of citrus flavours from the orient such as kalamansi or yuzu; or spices from the Middle Eastern and North African with elements such as sumac, ras el hanout and zataar. Other unfamiliar tastes waiting to be discovered include samphire, a succulent marine vegetable; the berry-like superfood, sea buckthorn; or the indigenous South African num num, also known as the Natal plum. These enticing surprises in the form of a complimentary cocktail on arrival, an amuse bouche or truffle will change weekly until the end of April.

And if you just want to pop in for a fabulous cocktail on the tranquil terrace, or at your table, there is a two for one special between 4pm-6pm daily.

Follow the hashtag #DiscoverTaste on social media to see what each week holds.

Catharina’s Restaurant is open 7-days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
