If you're looking to have lunch and experience the true vibe of Cape Town, I reckon most people will agree that Bree Street should be your go-to. This street has so many interesting places to wine and dine with my new favourite, Charango Barbacoa at the top of the list.
WIth a Latin American inspired menu, Charango has a wide selection of delicious dishes set to become a definitive foodie destination. We had the opportunity to dine here a while back and we weren't disappointed!
This was okay, although I expected this ceviche to be more traditional (marinated and cured in citrus juice). This however is more of a deconstructed version of the traditional ceviche.
Prawns: Flame grilled served on top of chucky avo, red kidney beans, chilli and basil salsa with charred nectarines
This was definitely our favourite of the two starters - delicious!
If you visit Charango Barbacoa and you love meat as much as we do, you simply have to try their selection of steaks. It's some of the best meat I've had in Cape Town and if you select one of their wet rubs or delicious sauces to go with it, you'll see what the fuss is about!
Rump Steak with Tomato Salad: Heirloom and chopped tomatoes, pickled onions, shredded basil and ash-rolled goats cheese
As sides we had the Chimichurri wet rub and the truffle mushroom sauce - the perfect compliment to these steaks!
Ice-cream lovers will be very happy with the dessert menu. It's a very small selection of desserts (3 to be exact) but it's light and refreshing after a heavy meal.
Deep Fried Ice-Cream: Deep fried vanilla bean ice cream, coated in Rice Krispies with dark chocolate ganache
Dulce: Dulce de leche ice cream, crushed candied almonds, pisco infused dulce de leche sauce
Overall, I think Charango is a great lunch spot situated perfectly in the center of Cape Town. The decor is very trendy, modern and the perfect spot for a glass of wine with friends. We enjoyed our meal and will return for the steak!
Thank you Charango Barbacoa for a yummy afternoon!
