The Ploughman’s Board is a great option to try and share among friends. Complete with freshly baked artisan breads and cheese sticks, cheeses, delicious cold meats and pates, this spread is fit for a king.
The crispy pork belly flat bread will leave you salivating by just reading it off the menu. A thin crust base coated in a tangy apple sage sauce topped with caramelized onions, fresh ricotta cheese and avocado and drizzled with the delicious house dressing.
If you are famished and looking for a hearty meal to tuck into, try the Hullabaloo burger with a 160g handmade beef patty, sriracha mayo, cheddar cheese, bacon and avocado, served on a homemade rooster-brood bun and accompanied by crisp handcut potato chips, this one is a winner. All meals have great value for money, but the burger is worth a mention – a great portion size for the price.
In Food opts to use only the freshest and wholesome ingredients and this is evident in the meals served. The great thing about this place is that all meals are prepared fresh, so waiting a little while longer is worth it. All breads used in the dishes are also freshly baked on site, which is a special treat. It is no wonder that foreigners flock to In Food when in Jeffery’s Bay.
The restaurant sports a very limited alcoholic drinks menu with a few basic cocktails, craft beers, spirits and wines available. The star of the show at In Food has to be their award-winning barista made coffee made from their in-house roastery, Coffee Society. There is an extensive list of coffee options to order and the coffee shop has red espresso drinks too. If you’re feeling adventurous, be sure to try their ‘Awesomeness in a Glass’ which is a choice between refreshing lychee and lemon with mint or carrot and orange juice extract.
As J Bay is known to be a slow town, don’t come to In Food if you’re in a hurry. The service is relaxed and friendly, true to the nature of the surfer’s town. Although the service and food delivery is rather slow, the waiters are clued up on the menu and can even offer insight into In Food’s top dish to order.
This corner shop is filled with character. Patrons can choose to sit inside the busy restaurant where smells of freshly baked bread and light chatter are a plenty, or you can opt to sit outside under the trees. A really cozy space filled with interesting pieces of art and mosaics. The rustic décor matches the wholesome food just perfectly.
