It’s big, it’s bold and it’s yellow!
The Bus Stop, an exciting, new dining experience has arrived at Stellenbosch Vineyards with the promise of serving the best burgers, pizzas and waffles this side of the R44!
This casual eatery is situated in the center of the pond on the Welmoed farm, sporting a bright yellow 1980 Bedford bus as the heart of the restaurant.
This unique concept gives a twist to the cuisine sensation that is the ‘food truck revolution’, with the bus refurbished into a bar serving and highlighting the innovative brand Arniston Bay Infusions, the farm’s heritage brand Welmoed and the home brand Stellenbosch Vineyards.
Enjoy Craft beer alongside a menu developed around wood fired pizzas and burgers from the open air kitchen. Think The Conductor, two wood fired patties, smoked mozzarella or Magic Forest, a mushroom inspired thin based pizza. Salads join the menu as well as yeast waffles with a selection of mouthwatering toppings.
“I have been searching for the perfect burger for a while, a burger is a very serious thing!”, said Chef Nic van Wyk who has been experimenting with dough to create authentic pizzas out the wood fired pizza oven, and wood fired burgers with ‘smashed’ patties.
“We are working towards creating a comprehensive food and wine experience for our guests, expanding our offerings on the farm and making it the ideal destination for a great day out in the wine lands,” said Managing Director, Eduan Steynberg.
The concept comes from Head of Innovations at Stellenbosch Vineyards, Stephan van Rooyen with the idea that a bus stop or bus often signifies an exciting journey, a place of social interaction and most likely the end of the working day or start of the weekend.
The Bus Stop will be open to the public from Thursday, December 1 with soft launches and trial runs happening before then. It joins the Tasting Room on the farm which offers platters wine tasting and unique pairings, with the restaurant Bistro 13 offering a more formal dining room, focusing on the premium Credo range, which performed exceptionally well in achieving accolades within the wine industry this year.
