Stephen Mandes’ name and skills still echo in Cape Town’s top kitchens. The season 3 ‘Three Ultimate Braai Master’ winner now satisfies palates at Mondiall ‘Kitchen & Bar’ in our Alfred Mall as the restaurant’s Head Chef.
In October, Mandes collaborated with previous Masterchef contestant and ‘Food is Love’ blogger Claire Allen to usher in summer with a new menu. The celebration, fittingly named Dine with Masters, saw lucky guests being treated to a six-course lunch especially curated by the talented pair and served with Seven Springs Vineyard’s Pinot Noir 2013.
Mondiall’s kitchen is filled with smokey flavours and inspired by Mediterranean tangs created with the help of produce freshly-sourced by restaurateur Patrick Symington from Epping Food Market regularly. The summer menu still savours the sophistication that Mondiall fans keep returning for and will be a pleasant surprise to newcomers.
The chic, modern open space with floor-to-ceiling glass windows and uniquely crafted wooden furniture by Vinwood creates an inviting atmosphere to enjoy the casual yet refined comfort food.
Throughout the hotter seasons, visit Mondiall for their specials and live music sessions while you sink your teeth into something exquisite.
