Tiger’s Milk

4 Jun , 2015  

Drop what you’re doing and go to Muizenberg. Seriously.

Tiger’s Milk, owned by the Harbour House Group – the same team who brought you Polana in Kalk Bay – have outdone themselves yet again with the hottest draw card to Surfer’s Corner (apart from the waves, of course). The doors of this fun and bustling attraction were opened towards the end of 2014, and despite visiting on a chilly, dreary Cape winter’s day, it was pumping.

The cavernous space holds long bar tables and chairs, large comfortable booths, tables for smaller groups and a wrap-around wooden seating area that looks out onto False Bay. Whether it be a thirst-quenching beer after a good surf, or a bite to eat with friends, Tiger’s Milk is where it’s at.

The space has an industrial, modern edge to it; the decor thoughtfully erected to work in perfect cohesion. It first and foremost has added culinary life to the somewhat dull Muizenberg strip, and a bar that pumps with energy such as this is just what this seaside suburb has long needed. The raw brick walls, open panelled ceiling, eclectic decor and beautiful lighting adds to its characteristic appeal.

Total dude food, our fingers got stuck into sticky BBQ short ribs – exceptionally tasty (R69/R110). They went down a treat with a CBC Amber Weiss, although other craft beers are available on tap (R30/R39). We also carbo-loaded with a thin crust lamb shank pizza, complete with humus, watercress, feta and olives (R95). Burgers are also available, as are appetisers and salads if you’re more cautious of calories than we are.

It’s a lively and festive seafront spot, and the perfect location to whip out the ‘more the merrier’ motto – it really is a great place to share a drink, meal and maybe even a little party with friends (we hear Sunday nights are pretty happening).
