Matt Schreuder's Homespun is by far one of the restaurant rustic fine dining in Blouberg not to miss. The space has been renovated in a creative way that makes the restaurant appear more spacious.
The food is still creative, beautifully plated and enticing.
For Starters, the beef tataki is a spread of different textures that complement each other. The fillet is juicy and tender encased in a crunchy coating, served with light and crispy tempura onion that are caramelised and sweet and completed by a wasabi mayo and pickled ginger.
Other starter options that look appetising to the eye are the grilled Patagonia squid or the vegetarian deep fried goats cheese.
For mains the new kid on the menu is the Lamb en croute. This lamb neck is cooked for 2hours over high temperature and then the heat is reduced and the lamb is then cooked for 6hours over this low heat. The result off course is an infusion of flavour and super tender lamb. As mentioned the lamb is rich in flavour and encased in phyllo pastry with al dente Julian vegetables – makes one think of a large spring roll.
Another main to consider is the beef fillet that is flame grilled served with sweet butternut wedges and fresh spring onions.
Besides their signature desserts Vahlrona blonde fondant, the chocolate torte Is the best to finish off a great dining experience. This torte is served with a decadent dark chocolate sauce, a banana gelato that taste just like fresh ripe bananas giving a cold sensation to the warm dessert. The fresh tart strawberries and gooseberry garnish cuts the richness and the pecan nuts compliments the banana gelato.
Homespun boasts themselves with wine paring of their dishes. They have a wide variety of wines. Other that that the wine list they also have craft beers and craft ice teas.
The service is still topnotch. Well informed, warm and welcoming. The menu is explained to guests with suggestions from the waitron. The guests are sent a confirmation sms for bookings. When guests go to the restaurant for a celebration such as a birthday etc. their table is then decorated with fresh flowers.
The space has had a bit of a face lift – looking a little more spacious. The space is intimate and cozy – great for celebrations and romantic dinners. The large mirrors make the space appear larger and the pendant and candle chandeliers look beautiful and give the space a modern touch.
