02 Dec Tapas that has a South African Flair at Tapered Tapas on 1st
Tapered Tapas on 1st is the latest and hippest hidden gem in Pine Park, Johannesburg (which is just around the corner from some of Linden’s gourmet restaurants). Labelled as providing “a variety of mouth-watering tapas made from fresh local produce”, Tapered blends the tapas Spanish influence with our South African heritage in order to bring guests a distinctive tapas experience.
The owner – Tshepo Meyer – has had numerous food adventures which have entailed her enjoying the flavours, textures as well as tastes from all four corners of the globe. She has brought back her preferred items and blended it all to create a unique as well as delicious menu offering which guests are able to enjoy while gazing upon the scenic view of leafy-green Johannesburg.
“I grew up in a big family where food was forever at the centre of our house. Food brings people closer so I wanted to create a space with amazing food and a stunning ambience where people could come together” Tshepo says. This is why the partnership with Waterford wines is so perfect.
Waterford Estate comes to Tapered
Tapered will be selling wines from the Waterford Estate, which is situated in the charming Blaauwklippen Valley. Merging the amazing wines with this scrumptious menu will take dining at Tapered to the next level.
Tapered will be keeping the following Waterford wines – among many others:
• Sauvignon Blanc,
• Grenache Noir, and
• Rose-Mary Rosé,
These wines can be accompanied with the home-made Hummus and Pita, the Moorish Chicken thigh skewers with Mojo Picon Sauce, Mozzarella Sticks with Romesco Sauce. The rosé will end off the evening faultlessly accompanied by their delicious chocolate Brownie.
At the heart of Tapered is the love for, as well as enthusiasm around, supporting community initiatives in addition to causes. “This is something that is very close to my heart. Our Tapered story would not be complete if this vital element was missing.
“We have already begun engaging with a number of community- based projects to see how we can become involved with some of the work which they do. As Sir Richard Branson said, doing good is good business” concludes Tshepo.
