Tryn Restaurant at Steenberg

On 13 November 2020, I was graciously hosted by Tryn Restauarnt at the Steenberg Wine Estate to sample their new Dinner menu.
The restaurant is set in a traditional Cape Dutch Gable building, yet the interior houses various dining spaces in bursts of rich colour with touches of Art Deco.

I have been a few times to Steenberg Estate for wine tasting, but not yet to dine. Tryn is a rather new addition to the beautiful estate and the name is short for Catharina Ras, the 17th Century founder of the Estate. Their menus are varied and easily accommodates for all diet preferences.

Known for adding a touch of Asian and Middle Eastern flair to her classically prepared food, Chef Kerry enlivens the familiar with exciting twists and flavour combinations to delight all palates.
