An evening grazing on grilled octopus with a corn, citrus and ouzo puree, fresh mussels steamed in a coconut and apricot broth, and chickpea fritters with harissa, char-grilled vegetables, micro greens, tomato atchar and tahini sounds like the stuff of summer dreams, doesn’t it? At the sleek ‘n sophisticated Licorish Bistro, these dreams become a reality with the introduction of head chef Karel Jacobs’ new menu!
And for the main meal options … think cauliflower ‘steak’ with harissa mashed potato and black bean salsa and pistachio-crusted teriyaki salmon with beetroot risotto, to name a few. Don’t forget to wash it all down with one or two Strawberry Blonde martinis, shaken with fresh strawberries, basil, cranberry, orange liqueur, vodka and a dash of black pepper … mmm, mmm!
