Several years after opening its doors in Cape Town's financial and legal district and after reinventing the concept of stylish city dining, sassy Five Flies remains the good-looking restaurant that everyone is talking about. To celebrate its anniversary, Five Flies spruced up its menu to feature popular old-time favorites and some new flavorsome summer creations. Known for its cutting edge cuisine, plump with fresh global flavors, exciting combinations and spectacular presentation, Five Flies has developed a strong following of discerning diners who love the mix of innovative fair, great ambiance and outstanding friendly service.
The seductive starters on
the new menu feature evergreens such as Saldanha Bay mussels
cooked in white wine, garlic, basil and cream, or the
tempting tea-smoked springbok carpaccio served with
Californian sushi and mustard cream. On popular demand, the
smoked salmon open ravioli with sweet peppers in a
horseradish broth remains on the menu. With summer in mind,
crisp asparagus drizzled in orange flavored hollandaise and
red pepper coulis, returns. A new addition is duck confit
spring rolls with an orange, ginger and coriander
Meat lovers will love the succulent slow roasted loin of lamb with oxtail croquette, mange-tout and a tomato jus, another new addition to the menu, not forgetting the 600gr T-bone steak.
The favorite catch at Five Flies remains the rosette of sole fillet with shrimp thermidore, creamed rocket and green curry sauce. Baked linefish served on spinach tagliolini with citrus fruits and a coriander beurre blanc is a sure new Five Flies classic in the making.
Baked goats cheese in phyllo with red pepper and basil coulis or panzarotti filled with pumpkin, served with brie and tarragon sauce are the new choices for vegetarians, whilst regular Five Fliers will be pleased to know that their favorite salad of mixed bitter greens, bosc pear and gorgonzola with roasted pinouts and red wine vinaigrette is still on the new menu.
