Wind your way down to Steenberg farm to visit the revamped, vibrant and super stylish Tryn restaurant. Dedicated to Steenberg 17th century founder Catharina Ras, aka Tryn. The new restaurant is contemporary in spirit with bold accents, and modern textures. Did we mention the gorgeous art and impeccable design and decor though? A post for another day. But loved the artwork from South African artists; Mongezi Ncaphayi, Jennifer Morrison, Gabrielle Kruger and Pierre Vermeulen. And you cannot miss Rick Tegelaar's Moooi Meshmatics Chandelier, which is a work of art on its own.
But you are here for the food, right? Executive Chef Kerry Kilpin levels up her culinary skills with an accessible menu featuring a range of mouth-watering dishes. Chef Kerry Kilpin is renowned for her signature “sweet merriment” and infuses some unexpected savoury notes such as basil, coriander, thyme and cardamom into her desserts.
