Bistro Sixteen82, Steenberg’s popular cellar door restaurant in Constantia welcomes vegans and vegetarians this summer with dedicated menus bursting with freshness and flavour.

Known for uncomplicated bistro-style food and tapas that is seasonal and flavourful, Chef Kerry draws on experiences during her travels to find new inspiration and authentic ingredients, so evident in the constant evolution of the Bistro Sixteen82 menu.

Vegans have plenty to choose from for starters and mains on the lunch menu. The broccoli tataki of marinated shimeji mushrooms, chilli, corn, spring onion and wild rocket is a must drizzled with Chef Kerry’s signature soy vinaigrette. A house salad and delicious marinated artichoke salad with beetroot, grilled courgettes and pumpkin seeds complete the selection of starters.

Chef Kerry’s famous vegetable stack of pan fried  veggies, roasted butternut, assorted mushrooms, tender greens and red pepper, all melded together by her delicious smoked paprika vinaigrette is one of three choices for mains. Other options are a warm vegetable quinoa salad of artichoke, courgettes, peppers, wild rocket and a red pepper coulis, or the avo and wild rocket Tempura Vegetables. The vegan dessert is a light and breezy bowl of fresh summer berries, juicy citrus and a berry coulis.

The vegetarian menu features variations of these dishes as well as a few extras including a panko crusted cheese fritter for starters, followed by a risotto of the day and mushroom and gorgonzola ricotta gnocchi for mains.

Don’t miss out on these delicious creations and visit Bistro Sixteen82 before the summer rush. The outside terrace framed by water features and spectacular mountain views is the ultimate setting for enjoying Steenberg’s outstanding bubbly and fine selection of wines.
