Miles Kubheka

Situated in The Capital Moloko Hotel in Sandton, Reuben’s @ The Capital promises local and global flavours in new dishes and time-honoured classics.

Food
Upon being seated, you’re welcomed with three kinds of freshly baked breads. The amuse-bouche is a complimentary Asian-inspired croquette, which promptly sets the tone for the meal. As a starter, go for the fried chilli-salted squid with a light and fresh fragrant salad. The complexity of flavours from this seemingly simple dish is praiseworthy.

For mains, the succulent braised pork belly comes with crispy crackling and a perfectly complementary gochujang sauce. It’s also served with a simply sublime pomme puree and crunchy tenderstem broccoli and red cabbage. A chilli-and-ginger caramel is the last element that brings the meal together in the most exquisite plating.

If you think the main meal can’t be outdone by dessert, you’ll be proven wrong by the malva pudding with Amarula ice cream and milk tart crème anglaise.

Drinks
There’s a walk-in wine cellar that shows off some of South Africa’s best wine. The bar is complemented by a private dining room that seats 16, with a cigar lounge upstairs.

Service
The service is laid-back but competent. This is incongruent with the restaurant’s décor and cuisine, which lends itself to more of a fine-dining experience. However, the laid-back feel is understandable, as Reuben’s serves as the hotel’s in-house restaurant.

Ambience
The restaurant feels unpretentious yet classy. Having the bar and wine cellar at the entry way; however, leaves both excluded from the dining experience. The restaurant is plush and comfortable. The private dining room is particularly ideal for business dinners and celebratory occasions.

And…
The adjoining hotel has conferencing facilities, which makes the restaurant ideal for hosting functions.
