Al fresco lunch at Dunes

This is, almost unbelievably,  a mid-winter day on the 9th of August 2013, Woman’s Day public holiday at Hout Bay beach.  It was glorious to feel some warm sun in the middle of what has been a very wet winter. Sadly there were no whales in the bay that day.
Fishcakes with chips and a tartar sauce for Lolly.  The fishcakes had lots of mixed smoked and plain fish and were a little unexpected.  Someone had put English mustard in the tartare sauce. Not great
Lynne’s dish of light and crisp battered very tender calamari strips and far too many chips with the same strange tartar sauce.
John’s excellent beer battered fish and chips
Ronnie’s rather dry fried angelfish and chips. All these dishes would have been improved by a little salad.
