Three new food delivery options launched in Stellenbosch. Find out how these Stellenbosch restaurants are tackling self-isolation.
The South African Government has offered clarity around new regulations affecting licensed restaurants, bars, taverns, shebeens and liquor stores (no alcohol to be sold after 6pm between Monday and Friday and 1pm on weekends). These regulations still apply, although in an effort to stop the spread of the coronavirus South Africa has been placed on lockdown from Thursday 26 March until 16 April.
With South Africans still coming to terms with the self-isolation, school closures and ‘business unusual’ coming to a halt, the general mood is one of concern and uncertainty.
There is little to celebrate. But, as so often happens in unprecedented times, there are businesses who step up, grab the opportunity and start doing things a little differently. In the past few days alone, three Stellenbosch eateries announced new takeaway menus, curbside service or ready-made meal options. Great news for Stellenbosch locals.
Bertus Basson continues to raise the culinary bar and has announced two new curbside services to accommodate social distancing: Pasta Rapido and Bertus se Huiskos.
Pasta Rapido is a new takeaway concept offering a simple, but delicious menu of four pasta dishes and a salad option.
Place your order by phoning 082 569 8958 or on UberEATS. Pick up is from Spek & Bone in Dorp Street, with a no-contact payment solution using SnapScan to make customers feel more comfortable.
Bertus se Huiskos
An extension of Eike, Bertus se Huiskos offers the same delicious traditional South African meals with a quirky, contemporary touch – this time as ready-made meal options for collection or delivery.
As Bertus says, “You have to keep on eating so we will keep on cooking!” This week’s meal is traditional bobotie, yellow rice with raisons & cinnamon, orange glazed sweet potato, pickled beetroot and vetkoek.
Place your order via WhatsApp on 076 377 5720 or by emailing email@example.com. Deliveries take place between 14h00 and 16h00.
Bicycle delivery has become super trendy and can be one part of evolving into a cleaner city with fewer greenhouse gases.
The Mill Coffee House
The Mill Coffee House has gone mobile in partnership with Carinus Lemmer – riding to the rescue. They’re offering bicycle deliveries to your home.
Place your order via WhatsApp on 082 923 0744.
Jeanneret Momberg, General Manager Visit Stellenbosch, is thrilled to see these initiatives in play: “Self-isolating is no fun for individuals or businesses. These are great local options to support if you can!”
