What’s New at MOM
This year started with a bang, as our very exciting new MOM Café products are being rolled out. Chef Pierre is catering for the ever-growing vegetarian clientele in Paarl with his spin on a Moroccan vegetable pie. The mouth-watering Moroccan pie contains a combination of ingredients such as butternut, chickpeas, peppers and onion with just enough spice to make your taste buds explode. The authentic Spanakopita will take you all the way back to Greece with its creamy spinach and feta filling. It’s the perfect size to fill a healthy lunchbox with. Our traditional meaty sausage roll is the perfect pastry snack to soothe those hunger pains. You can’t go wrong with this homemade puff pastry filled with our hearty mince mix. It’s a recipe that originates from Chef Pierre’s Ouma!
What’s happening in the kitchen?
With the new decade, comes a new lunch menu for MOM Cafe! We’ve been hard at work compiling all of our customers favorite lunch time meals into a daily lunch menu. Our lunch menu will be available, every day, from 11.30 until 3pm daily. Come for a sit down meal or have it as a convinient takeaway. With the heat as bad as it’s been, we would love to offer some respite in our air conditioned dining room; stop by and cool down for lunch. Our new lunch time menu has a wide variety of offerings; a variety of crisp salads from traditional greek, tuna with a nicoise dressing and smoked chicken with ranch dressing. Our one of a kind burger inspired by Chef Gino is an absolute must for lunch or as an after school meal for the super hungry. Pure steak mince patty on a home baked brioche bun with all the trimmings! MOM’s Lasagne and the Crunchy Schnitzels change daily so you will never grow bored and for those looking for a lighter bite our much loved toasted sandwiches are always waiting for you. Chef Eugene will also always have 2 carefully selected daily specials for you to choose from. Don’t miss the roast which is on offer every Friday. With a new menu, a new look is desired. We invite you to come and experience what the MOM Café team has in store for you.
