Feast Like A King At Oyo & Dash Restaurants’ Annual Crayfish Festival

19th September 2013-Regarded by many as one of the most delicious of all seafood, crayfish is a celebrated delicacy amongst foodies all around the world. Just the sound of cracking the shell to release the aroma and unique taste of the delectably sweet, white flesh of the king of crustaceans (usually the sign of a celebration or warm summer evenings) brings special memories to one and all. Newmark Hotels, Reserves & Lodges know everything there is about special celebrations, and once again have introduced their Annual Crayfish Festival!
With an already existing reputation as the best seafood platter in Cape Town, the good news is that this season’s 2013 Crayfish Festival will include both OYO Restaurant located at the renowned V&A Hotel, as well as the chic Dash Restaurant, situated at the regal Queen Victoria Hotel.

Enjoy not only the warmer spring temperatures whilst feasting on 500g of crayfish at either of these popular Cape Town V&A Waterfront eateries, but given that the festival runs well into summer, both are the perfect choice for a lively and entertaining location whether hosting family and friends, or celebrating company year-end get-togethers.

Served either chilled or steaming, the delectable crayfish platter is artistically presented with a selection of three classic sauces: lemon butter, garlic and peri-peri; including side servings of gourmet potato and fresh citrus salad. At R199.00 per person, this has to be one of the best ‘summer deals’ on offer and will entice even the most critical gourmand. Waterford Estate in Stellenbosch have partnered with Newmark Hotels, Reserves & Lodges to offer the perfect accompaniment to this spread.

Seafood lovers can head down to OYO Restaurant & Cocktail Bar and relax on the quayside terrace soaking up the unique atmosphere with the eminent Table Mountain backdrop or retreat to the elegance of Dash Restaurant with its sophisticated décor and ambiance. Irrespective of choice, Newmark’s creative culinary team awaits to astound!
