Lemon Butta Restaurant - Willowbridge
Description Lebanese by origin, Philip Human has been in the restaurant business for many years and originally trained in Europe as a Chef. He has an excellent knowledge of Seafood, and after ten years of working in the Waterfront, realized that there was a niche market in the northern suburbs for the type of Seafood concept which he had in mind. Lemon-butta is not just a restaurant - it also encompasses a deli counter, sushi bar, retail section and fresh fish counter. With so many options under one roof, a visit to Lemon-butta is definitely an event as opposed to simply eating a meal. The well planned interior offers versatile seating arrangements with diners able to choose from the sushi bar, the inside tables, the covered verandah, or the outside deck which has plenty of shady umbrellas and also boast its own sushi counter. Another feature worth mentioning is the concertina glass doors which fold back to create a superb indoor/outdoor flow especially in the warm summer months. The deli counter offers a selection of Mediterranean tapas dishes such as homemade fish cakes, pickled fish, Portuguese sardines and calamari salad to mention but a few of the dishes available. All of the deli dishes are available to eat at the restaurant or as a takeaway. The deli also stocks imported salmon (including smoked Norwegian salmon), caviar and anchovies and Philip is quick to point out that much effort goes into sourcing only the freshest top quality products. The retail section stocks an impressive and colourful array of imported goods such as oils, coffees, pastas, spices and sauces, along with all the ingredients for making your own sushi. The fresh fish counter receives fresh fish daily and is staffed by expert fishmongers who will not only prepare and fillet your fish for you, but also offer advice on the cooking and preparation of it. The quality is unsurpassed with prawns, langoustines, mussels, linefish, crayfish, calamari and oysters ready and waiting for you to make your selection. In recent years there has been an unprecedented demand for good Sushi restaurants, and in this respect Lemon-Butta has earned a reputation as one the top Sushi bars in Cape Town. Philip employs three Sushi chefs who have all trained overseas and are highly skilled in their chosen field. Diners have the choice of enjoying their Sushi at the counter, at the table (where it is often chosen as a starter) or requesting a takeaway to enjoy at home. When it comes to the menu there is so much to choose from particularly on the starter menu where the sushi is hugely popular along with the mussels and the tapas dishes from the deli counter. Main course recommendations are the single seafood platter (which is impressively large), the giant Tiger Prawns cooked on the coals, the whole baked linefish and the baby sole. For dessert lovers the Choco Hot Pot (made with Lindt chocolate and mascarpone) is highly recommended, as is the delectable halva ice cream which is a very traditional Middle Eastern dessert. Lastly, Lemon-butta will host your private function at the restaurant, but also offer outside catering for those who prefer their own venue. A recently added feature to Lemon Butta Willowbridge is the Robata Bar. Here appetizer-size dishes are prepared in the Japanese Robata tradition. Roughly translated it means "prepared on an open flame". The dishes are served with authentic Japanese sauce and condiments. Location/Address/Phone No./Fax No.
