New Pronto menu at Societi Bistro

Societi Bistro in Orange Street in Cape Town is running a Pronto special from 12 to 7 pm on Wednesdays and Thursday; they are open till 11 pm and on those two days in April you get a free 330ml Woodstock lager. We were going to be in town, so were tempted to go and sample the food, which you can look at on line.
You can sit and enjoy lunch in the garden on a sunny day
The Pronto Menu. They are quite happy for you to mix and match dishes or order a combination
We chose a seat inside; Cape Town is rather unseasonably windy at the moment
The decor is modern and old combined and it is a relaxed and comfortable place to eat
Our Woodstock lagers were refreshing, bready, hoppy and enjoyable
We were offered some really good bread and the ale went so well with the sourdough!
Lynne ordered the hake and chips in batter. Wonderfully fresh hake and one of the best batters ever
And each of us succumbed to an order of chips, which come with a mustardy mayonnaise
Oh dear, they were terrific and far too much for one of us; we should have shared a portion. Great long chips with crispy ends
John ordered the Tuna Poke Bowl,
lots of tuna tataki, fresh pineapple, grated carrot, radish, red onions and cucumber, served on sticky rice
The bowl was big and you can see here how big the chips are too
Some gin and tonic and wine options on the blackboard
And the menu of the day
Our very reasonable bill. Peter Weetman, the owner, knows us and very generously sent us two desserts to sample. We liked them so much that John forgot to take a photo of them! A slice of delicious chocolate nemesis tart and a lemon curd tart were much enjoyed and a nap ensued thereafter for one of us. Thank you to our two great waitresses who really looked after us
Our car was parked at the Lifestyle Centre on Kloof Street where our friends Sue and Neil Proudfoot have their wine shop,
 Wine Concepts, so we dropped in to say hello. Rianie Strydom was there, showcasing her wines
So of course we had a quick taste before heading home
