Mogg’s Country Cookhouse can be found along the long winding roads, in the Hemel and Aarde valley. Drink in delicious views of the vineyards and rolling hills of the valley when you dine at this family run restaurant. |
The menu at Mogg’s speaks of the abundance of its surrounds, with starters such as the pear, gorgonzola, avocado and walnut salad with a grainy mustard and honey vinaigrette, and smoked trout, sautéed prawns and crème fraiche phyllo basket with lime wasabi vinaigrette. For mains, the slow roasted lamb shank with Moroccan style demi-glaze sauce on potato mash topped with yoghurt and fresh mint drizzle sounds like a heavenly experience, as do the pork fillet medallions in a gruyere and green peppercorn batter.
The minimalist dessert menu gives one the impression that the ones on offer are truly spectacular. We love the sound of the chocolate mousse Pavlova with fresh strawberry and Van der Hum drizzle, and the crème brulee topped with fresh raspberries.
Mogg’s has gathered a dedicated following since opening its doors in 1994, thanks to a combination of all its magical ingredients.
