Corinna Turner Review

Posted on Apr 25, 2013 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Recently, despite inclement weather, a friend and I had a really enjoyable evening and supper at the Café Chameleon, Plattekloof Centre, Plattekloof. What a great place to eat out. Breakfast, coffee & cake, lunch, dinner – their menu covers it all and at reasonable prices too. And the view. Wow. The centre Café Chameleon is tucked away in is set on the slopes of the Tygerberg Hills, giving rise to the restaurant having the most enviable views, particularly towards Table Mountain and Cape Town. This is also because of the prime corner position it holds and the large windows that make up most of the walls facing outwards, giving an absolutely stunning panoramic view – day and night. Aside from the view and the delectable menu, one of the things I like about the Café Chameleon is how friendly and relaxed the staff is; attentive and helpful but you don’t get the feeling the management are breathing down their necks to attain this. The staff enjoy working there and this makes for an enjoyable, relaxed time for the patrons. Certainly my friend and I enjoyed ourselves, and our waitress, Tamsyn, was delightful. We had a bit of a chuckle with her – because I once owned a donkey that had a baby whom I named Tamsyn. When we arrived we were welcomed in and taken to a window table, and although the weather meant we did not have a clear view of Table Mountain it was interesting being able to look across towards it and see all the sparkling lights. We had actually been placed at another table away from the window because of concern that we might feel cold so close to the window. How’s that for caring service? Once settled we ordered a bottle of Twelve Apostles Sauvignon Blanc 2012. I have never been a Sauvignon Blanc drinker, as I always found it too acidic for my tastes. This wine, however, was something else!  It was worth going to the Café Chameleon just to be able to enjoy this very special wine. It is light, fresh and fruity and my friend and I enjoyed several glasses during the course of the evening. It went with everything we ate – including dessert, which I have always found problematic. You won’t find this wine in any supermarket. Limited numbers of bottles are produced by the father and son garagiste winemakers of the Twelve Apostles Winery. Tamsyn recommended the steaks, and I have to say I was tempted. However, after feeling I wanted to say ‘I’ll have a bit of everything…‘ I plumped for a starter of Salmon Rosti, with my friend having Chicken Livers on Rosti. The portions are a good size, so be warned. The chicken livers were rich and aromatic and went well with the rosti. I have to admit to a yen for smoked salmon, so for me the salmon combined with rosti was just right. Not too heavy, leaving me wanting more, which is exactly what a starter should do. For my main course I chose Pasta Carbonara with chicken breast, bacon, garlic and mushrooms,...
