Breakfast at Jarryds, Cape Town

Finally another post. Sorry I’ve been so shitty, it’s my last three weeks of Uni EVER so it’s pretty hectic over here… At least it means South Africa posts live on! Hoorah!

And now, we’re in Cape Town. I’ve never been, so Boy was determiend to take me there for a couple of nights. This meant we had to pack EVERYTHING we possibly could into three days! It also meant we couldn’t afford to waste having a bad meal, so as Food and Beverage Manager of the team, I made sure everything would be deeeelicious. Cue lots of Instagram searching and cross-referencing on Google. I’m a pro at this now (I’ll upload a how-to post soon, I swear!)

As soon as we landed, we hopped into our rental car and drove to brekkie. Jarryds was one of those Instagram gems I found.

We popped ourselves on a high table. My back hates high stools, but it had the best lighting, and lighting always wins.

And juiced up. The juices were super fresh.

I think these were carrot, apple, ginger bad boys.

And then, the food.

I’d seen their Blueberry Hotcake splattered all over Instagram, and I wanted it bad. We tried to order it to share in the middle (classic us), but they were out of it. Drats. I think it was a sign not to be a fat shit.

It was a blessing in disguise, since I was stuffed full after my meal. I had JARRYDS Savoury Quinoa Breakfast Bowl which came with sautéed kale, avocado, house made basil pesto, mixed toasted nuts and poached egg. I also ordered panicked and ordered a side of feta, which I regretted since as soon as it arrived I wasn’t feeling the dairy. Boy happily took it off my hands, though.

He mixed it in with JARRYDS Breakfast Bruschetta. It was bacon, avocado, tomato + basil salsa, poached eggs and house made balsamic reduction, with a choice of bread.

The only thing out of the entire meal that we weren’t in love with were the Sweetcorn Fritters we ordered on the side. Boy said it reminded him of an Onion Bhaji, and I think it was just a little dry all on its own.

But still. What a first breakfast in Cape Town. I love a good quinoa breakfast bowl.
