Luxury hotel One&Only Cape Town has announced the opening of their new restaurant, Ochre, a unique establishment that offers a contemporary interpretation of age-old South African recipes while also combining a kaleidoscope of heritages to create uniquely re-imagined dishes and flavours.
The décor is understated, stylish and includes local design threads throughout the restaurant. Shweshwe fabric, described as the denim of South Africa, has been incorporated in the uniforms, as well as bespoke rope necklaces designed by PICHULIK and handcrafted by local female artisans.
Resort Executive Chef Chris Mare has created a unique menu inspired by local cuisine, adding his own interpretation to favourites such as Bobotie and West Coast Mussels. For local diners, this means a nuance of “tuisgemaakde” nostalgia and for visitors an exploration of South Africa on a plate.
With a noteworthy wine list curated by award-winning Head Sommerlier, Luvo Ntezo and mains that include a Pulled Lamb Bobotie with shortcrust pastry, sweet potato and banana puree, brandied raisins and apricot chutney or “Pens & Pootjies” Braised pork belly, trotter skilpadjies, marogo, pampoen pofferties and Malay curry sauce, Ochre is a once in a lifetime culinary experience.
Ochre is open to the public as well as resort guests for breakfast daily from 06h30 – 11h00, and for dinner from Thursday to Tuesday 18h30-22h30. Groups and special occasions are welcome. Reservations recommended:
