Royal Luncheon Pop Up Restaurant
With love from the Twins x Laager Rooibos
Our 11th pop up restaurant!!! Phew!!! ?? it doesn’t get easier planning these pop ups but it definitely does get exciting.
We were also extremely excited to collaborate with Laager Rooibos, which is perfect for us because we looooove tea.
We themed our pop up “Kings and Queens of Wakanda” and EVERYBODY came dressed to the nines!!! Thank you beautiful people!!!!
We hosted at the most exquisite venue ever in Johannesburg called “Dunkeld Manor Guesthouse” owned by the beautiful Sandi, uurrghh!! What more can we say ? ??? absolutely perfect!!! We are so thankful.
We decided to host a cozy late lunch for our guests because the weather has been a bit sombre so we wanted to make a hearty menu. We served a 3 course and the most exciting part was that we en cooperated the Rooibos tea in most of our dishes.
For starters we had “pap en vleis” balls, out take on the typical South African “Pap en vleis” but we turned it into a canapé… not something that would be typically done.
For the main course we had a lovely Lamb curry, Roti, Tzatziki And salsa. We used Rooibos tea as the liquid instead of your typical beef or chicken stock. It gives it a more clean flavor and this way we could control our seasoning and therefore was less sodium in the actual dish.
For dessert we hosted a “mini high tea” with a trio of desserts. The whole point of this course was for people to taste the tea and all the other different tea flavors.
Not to “toot” our own horns but… it was LIT!!!!
Our hearts get bigger and bigger every time we host these lovely events, we have the loveliest people as guest and they like our cooking!!! Of course they are close to our hearts.
What a successful collaboration and sponsorship with Laager Rooibos ????
