To market, to market, to buy a fat pig - Die Hermanuspietersfontein Markie
Real people. Real food. Real crockery. Real cutlery. Real stemware. This is how Die Hermanuspietersfontein Markie rolls.
A relaxing way to spend your Saturday mornings - while the kids try break the Jenga world record building the tallest tower – to enjoy breakfast, brunch or lunch with free wine tastings and background music thrown it makes for a foot tapping happy, fun, family pastime.
Bacon and eggs, French toast, artisanal coffee, freshly squeezed fruit juices, freshly shucked oysters, a glass or two of MCC, watching Jan flick his pancake pan, vetkoek with jam, mince or both and samoosas, a selection of “pie ‘n slaai”; grilled prawns, perlemoen and rice, exotic deep fried onion with handmade chimichurri, mussels; cheese and charcuterie platters, freshly sliced biltong butties with olives and olive oil adding to the taste challenge for making up a hungry mind.
British Chef Brian Ahearn’s fish ‘n chips is as good as can be expected in London’s best, while watching him tossing the pan preparing your plate of paella is pure culinary theatre.
Adding to the casual open air diner experience the cellar’s elegant range of wines – sporting quirky Afrikaans names – Die Markie is a fun venue to acquaint yourself with this Addams style Wine Family who profess they don’t take themselves too seriously.
It’s wines like Kleinboet, Kaalvoet Meisie and Bloos that proves they’re serious about making good wines and having fun at the same time.
So? Spoil the one you love to Saturday mornings at Die Markie. What if you can’t be with the one you love? Then love the ones you’re with!
The people behind the tables’ attitude? The Customer is Queen. While the cellar’s Skapie chirps.
Smile Mêrim Smile…
