Eating Flowers at Bar Bar Black Sheep in Riebeek Kasteel

After exploring Riebeek Kasteel in the heat of the day, my friend Buzzy and I headed off to The Royal Hotel for a Gin & Tonic where I remembered Raggamuffin’s words: you HAVE to eat at Bar Bar Black Sheep. 

So after taking some photos and picking & eating mulberries in the back garden, we headed off in the direction of Short Street, passing photo opportunities every step of the way…

We were met by the chef and our friendly waiter who said, ‘it’s my pleasure,’ every time we thanked him… which was often because we ordered so many sumptuous dishes…

The MOST exciting dish?  The battered courgette flowers, yes FLOWERS, which were served with garlic infused olive oil and parmesan (we ordered more after tasting our first dish).  Buzzy chose not to dip the deep fried flowers into the oil because he preferred the subtle taste.  I, on the other hand, delighted in the dipping!

We had all the time in the world to notice the interesting detail scattered around the rustic restaurant…

And to sip on the local wines…

And finally order dessert (um, perhaps this particular photo reflects something more than just camera shake ie. the double Bar of the restaurant in question!)…

  1. I used to get the flowered courgettes here… until I saw that when the flowers close, the bugs get trapped in them. Then, as you can imagine, I said, “No thank you. Not anymore.”

      1. PS. And thanks again for the giggle seeing your Whipping It Up quote on your facebook page!
