It’s a beautiful thing when a career and passion come together. This super special dish is inspired by both South Africa and Namibia. Our Head Chef @nicoleloubser and our Sous Chef @j_would teamed up to create this masterpiece that includes ingredients like smoked potato mash, pickled mushrooms, golden beetroots and dukkah spice. This Oryx dish is served rare as the meat is so incredibly lean but it’s matched perfectly with our Quoin Rock Shiraz. Book your lunch reservation now to experience this amazing creation! #QuoinRock #gate_restaurant #foodjourney #foodexperience #southafrica #namibia #finedining #finedininglovers #foodofinstagram #artcreation #foodies #foodart #foodartchef #winelands
