If you’re looking for some classic winter-warmer dishes then look no further than Oude Werf.

Located in the heart of Stellenbosch, Oude Werf sticks to their heritage of providing traditional meals to their patrons, and this winter expect a selection of hearty broths and proudly South African meals.

If you find yourself in the area around lunch time, be sure to try out their ‘on a budget’ butternut and coconut soup with a side serving of freshly baked vetkoek for a mere R38. If you’re wanting a heartier midday meal, try Oude Werf’s modern take on the baboetie dish – with the filling folded into a wrap and served with a fruit salsa, some vetkoek and ‘korrelkonfyt’.

Dinner proves to be a more extravagant affair starting off with a Karoo venison biltong and Simonsberg blue rock cheese soup. Mains include a traditional lamb dish with tomato bredie, venison shank with chickpeas and a blueberry jus (R115) and a braised oxtail served with ‘stywepap’.

If you’re looking for even more local flavour try out Oude Werf’s signature meal ‘Truly South African Trio’, a dish that combines three favourites in one dish –  Cape Malay bobotie, chicken pie, and oxtail. This feast is served with yellow rice and seasonal vegetables.

Check out their lunch and dinner menu.
