I am ashamed to say it was my very first time visiting Steenberg Wine Estate. I wish I had been sooner, alas there is no time like the present, right? Steenberg Wine Estate is situated roughly 25 minutes from Cape Town in the luscious green neighbourhood of Steenberg, Tokai. Tryn, a vibrant new signature restaurant has opened at Steenberg with renowned Constantia chef, Kerry Kilpin, at the helm of this opulent well oiled machine.
Dedicated to Steenberg’s 17th century founder, Catharina Ras, or Tryn as she was known to her nearest and dearest, the new restaurant is contemporary in spirit with fabulous food, bold accents and modern textures. Today, Steenberg Farm continues to honour her name with the opening of Tryn and dedicating two signature wines to her: the flagship red blend, Catharina, and the prestige cuvée, Lady R Méthode Cap Classique.
Chef Kerry takes her culinary skills to the next level, featuring an abundance of fresh, seasonal ingredients, honest flavours and intuitive service. 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.
Her menu is accessible and easy to navigate with ample choice of deliciously prepared dishes. Meat lovers will find all their favourite cuts, while vegetarians can savour Kerry’s signature brand of delectable tastes and textures. Her profound passion for ethically sourced fish also shines through on the Tryn menu. With that said, you will find a wood carved fish with an Abalobi barcode to scan to learn more about the sustainable catch of the day.
Each meal is paired to perfection with an award-winning Steenberg wine to compliment the meal and create an unforgettable sensory experience. I certainly cannot wait to be back to discover more of what Steenberg has to offer. The food and experience at Tryn is nothing short of an incredible opulent experience, perfect for a fancy yet relaxed date night or an intimate birthday dinner.
Tryn is open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner. For bookings contact +27 (0)21 7137178 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
