Located in the upmarket leafy suburb of Higgovale, Kensington Place is on the slopes of Table Mountain. The city, its harbour and the surrounding mountains are all visible from each private terrace. Lush quiet gardens and an intimate pool surround the property. The interiors have an unmistakable contemporary feel with eclectic African touches throughout. You can be pampered to breakfast in bed, on your terrace or overlooking the gardens, at any time. An urban retreat yet minutes from the city.

The White Room at Dear Me

Austen Johnston

To start off with, The White Room lives up to its name - the room is all white - floors, walls, ceilings and even the tables. Wear too much white and you'll blend right in!

 

Every Thursday night The White Room comes alive by using a "surprise" element and it's just phenomenal! 

The 9 course menu is creating waves in the Cape Town foodie circles and it lives up to the rumours - it's Fantastic! The White Room does dinner a little differently - There is no menu. This has been replaced by is a little flip booklet on the table that you page through with every course. The booklet explains more about the course placed in front of you and gives you the instructions on either how to eat the dish and/or assemble your dish.

The presentation of the food was magnificent - prepared with so much detail and care that it feels wrong to upset the balance on your plate... Some of courses to look out for are the Pigtail Terrine, Sesame Seed Asian broth with Cod carpaccio and the tempura Oysters. 

 

Each dish is an absolute delight! The White Room's wine list is short but great!
