Breakfast at View, Johannesburg's loftiest urban chic restaurant, is reached via a glass elevator. Here decor is calm, quiet and understated with touch-friendly textures, however every dish from the continental buffet, bellows in tones of smoked salmon roses, cold meats, caviar and baked goods.
My favourite was the Eggs Benedict on a smoked salmon trout base that pulled me into a slow dance of soft yellow yolk melting into the hollandaise sauce, lulling me into a steady eating rhythm. My kind of comfort food and so worth a splurge. It's gourmet food with a view!
So we did the 5 course tasting menu, well balanced taste expeicnce. The taste and texture was mind blowing, execellent. The wine pairing was spot on, in fact best pairing and meal combinations we have ever had.
Was not a planned evening, but we were pleasantly surprised.
