If you're based in Cape Town, your weekly routine probably involves work, lunch, work, drinks after work and repeat. For those who do live this lifestyle, I'm sure you are always looking for a new spot to try out to relax after a long day in the office. Something that is affordable with a good variety of cocktails, wine and food (and of course a trendy ambience!)
Well look no further! We have found the coolest place in Cape Town - Pintxos Bar @ Sotano in Bree Street! This little cocktail bar has the coolest concept and we were blown away with the prices and value for money you experience here.
So let's talk about the concept. At this Pinxtos Bar you can order your wine or cocktail (we DEFINITELY recommend the cocktails - it's made by an awesome mixologist that has amazing skills) and then you can select your gourmet tapas style snacks either from the menu or from the snack bar. Don't be fooled by the idea of a snack. You can expect incredibly delicious canape style dishes that are bursting with flavour and the best part, some of them are literally R20! That is an absolute steal for the amazing quality of the food.
I stole this image from my friend's blog Lipglossismylife just to show you the crazy prices- thanks Leigh!
I suggest getting a group of friends together and ordering a selection of these plates to share and try together. They are all worth tasting, but the bigger the group, the more food you can all experience to eventually select your favourites!
Our absolute favourite of all the food we tried was the dishes that you had to order. If you want something more hearty, this should be your go to! (don't let the bad lighting in these pics fool you - it's delicious, trust us!)
Beef Shin Mash (R38) - ridiculous amount for such a delicious dish!
Wild Mushroom Egg Yolk (R32) - packed with flavour and a great vegetarian option.
We absolutely love the concept of this and will definitely be back for a catch up with friends! If you'd like to pop in, they are open from 4pm to 7pm on Monday to Saturday.
Cheers to a new hotspot in the Mother City!
