I was invited to visit the deck at Southern Sun Montecasino and sample their Oysters & Bubbly special offer!
Its such a gorgeous hotel too… I wish my photography skills were up to giving you an idea of what it looks like inside.
And did you know that you can sit on the deck at the Southern Sun Montecasino even if Punchinello’s restaurant is closed!?
And after my visit, let me tell you what – I could sit out on that deck all day, every day!
There’s a little dam with ducks and swans, and the deck provides fabulous shade and chairs that are dangerously comfortable!
So until October 13th 2013 – thats this Sunday- you can enjoy 6 oysters with a glass of J.C. le Roux Pinot Noir (my personal favourite bubbly just by the way) for just R69! You can have another glass of bubbly for R29, or go all out and buy the bottle for R129.
And who knew oysters were so yummy!
I had mine with lemon and pepper, and a little drop of Tabasco, and the ladies from SS were kind enough to show me how to make sure the oyster is completely loose in its shell before pouring it into your mouth.
I get that its not everyone’s cup of tea but I am now a HUGE fan! They literally taste like the sea!
And after chatting to a Punchinellos sous chef, I now know that oysters are actually seasonal, so if you want them for a function you must make sure to order them well in advance.
