Linden, known for its incredible variety of restaurants has a new kid on the block. Tapered Tapas on 1st is it’s newest and trendiest hidden gem.
The restaurant hosted a group of foodie enthusiasts and I to a fabulous evening of food and wine pairings. Tapered Tapas brought the tapas, Waterford Estate brought the wine and us foodies, well we brought the entertainment. It was a night of good food, good wine and good company.
Described as serving “a variety of mouth-watering tapas made from
fresh local produce”. Tapered combines the Spanish influence of tapas with our South African heritage to bring guests a unique tapas experience.
Waterford Estate Wines
Tapered stocks wines from the Waterford Estate, located in the picturesque Blaauwklippen Valley, in the world-renowned Stellenbosch region. Our evening of wine pairings transported me back to wine tasting weekends in the Mother City. Having spent copious amounts of time at Waterford Estate, this gathering was an absolute treat for me. Combining the range of Waterford Estate wines with the Tapered Tapas menu, took the experience to the next level. Tapered Tapas on 1st will be keeping the Waterford Sauvignon Blanc, Grenache Noir and Rose-Mary Rosé on their wine list. Let me just take a moment to say thank you for my awesome prize which was a bottle of Rose-mary Rosé.
The Tapered Experience
Tapas on the menu were home-made Hummus and Pita, and Jalapeno Poppers. Mozzarella Sticks with Romesco Sauce followed. Chicken thigh skewers served with Mojo Picon Sauce and Jalapeno poppers heightened the experience. Followed by Calamari and succulent beef fillet. The night ended on a high with delicious chocolate Brownies. Point and case is that they do meat exceptionally well and serve the most marvellous chocolate brownies I have ever had.
