Stormy Weather Surprise at the Deck House Crab Shack in Kloof St

Our plan on Sunday was to drive through to Kalkies for great fish and Chips in Kalk Bay. A big storm hit us at 08h11 on Sunday morning and, after consultation, we decided it would be more sensible to go closer to home, but we still wanted to eat fish and we wanted to try one of the many new restaurants that have been popping up all over Cape Town in the last few months
They have a nice deck but on this cold and stormy day we were not brave enough to sit out
Our table inside
The girls chose the lobster roll with coleslaw and crisp chips (Lynne only ate one side of the bun!)
The guys had the more generous seared tuna burger topped with avocado salsa and served with chips. John left his bun. Good boy
Our friend Loraine has been travelling around the world for 2 months and she surprised us all by arriving at the restaurant, just off the plane. We thought she was stuck in Amsterdam trying to get a flight. Her husband was mightily shocked, surprised and absolutely delighted to see her, as were we
The bill for four with corkage for a bottle of Groote Post Sauvignon blanc 2013 which we took with us. R160 a head with wine and service seems reasonable. We would love to eat some of the luxury items on the menu like the snow crab, huge prawns and crayfish options but those are a little expensive for now
