Le Petite Ferme - Winelands, South Africa

We were lucky to get a table for lunch on a Saturday at Le Petite Ferme by just walking in. We had to sit at the bar area, but that was certainly not a bad thing. While there isn't much of a view, the ambience is much cozier than in the regular dining room.

Le Petite Ferme has gorgeous views of the valley. I was quite smitten. Since we were early, we got to sit outside for a bit and enjoy some sparkling wine.

This is quite the life isn't it?

Lunch was absolutely fabulous. I had an aubergine in filo for mains while P had kudu. The aubergine was good but the kudu stole the show. Kudu usually has a gamey taste, but the Le Petite Ferme version was nicely seasoned and flavored so you could barely taste it.

Chomp Meter: I highly recommend this restaurant! Writing this post brings back fond memories of our trip in February 2008.
