Cape Town is seriously spoiled for choice when it comes to wine and dining options, especially as the festive season draws closer and new hot spots start popping up on every corner. Amongst any vast selection though, the gems always stand out, like the farm to table restaurant Little Saint…
Situated amongst the hustle of Bree Street, Little Saint initially caught our eye with their ‘farm to table’ concept, which (we can now confirm) they passionately execute. Like your favourite friends who have an open-door policy, Little Saint welcomes you in and fills you with the freshest kind of comfort food.
It’s the perfect example of rustic fine dining – food that is created with soul and expertise, delivered in an unpretentious, homely fashion. With pure dedication and passion, Chef Santi Louzan and his wife Dominique, have created a space that offers a food experience of note.
While growing up Santi’s nickname was Santiño which means Little Saint and this formed the inspiration for a restaurant that is founded around principles of goodness, freshness and deliciousness.
From the Spanish shores, internationally trained Chef Santi grew up knowing food made only from the freshest produce and seasonal finds, and it is on this foundation that the Little Saint menu was formed. Expect to find new meaning (and flavour!) in the trending buzz words sustainably sourced, organically farmed and free range.
The menu is carefully curated as the season brings in its new fruit, and you will battle to choose just one dish as a favourite… but you can certainly try – the fragrant stuffed tomatoes, the triple cooked pork belly and the extremely decadent puddings that are shockingly sugar-free, gluten-free and natural (aka you’re can have more than one serving!), we predict will be at the top of your list. No matter what your dietary requirements are, you are sure to be satisfied with the selection.
P.S. Did we mention the mushroom tea starter? Ask Chef Santi nicely if it’s not on the menu, you won’t regret it.
