Freedom Day is the commemoration of the first democratic elections held in South Africa in 1994. Vivat Baachus will be celebrating throughout the whole of April, and any guests dining during the month will receive a special treat. 

South African steak restaurant and wine bar Vivat Bacchus is returning to its roots for Freedom Day (27th April) with the launch of its new SA focused a la carte and special feasting Braai menu for tables of eight or more.

The new menus feature South African classics with plenty of bold flavours and warming aromas with withe dishes such as  Mushroom and Beetroot Frikkadel, doused in chakalaka – a staple hailing from Johannesburg made up of beans, fresh veg, onions, peppers, and tomatoes with a spicy twist. Or Crocodile Goujons with pickled chilli and peri peri aioli.  

For mains, meat lovers have unique new cuts including an Ostrich Fillet Steak – a, low fat meat popular in the restaurant’s home country and Karoo Style Lamb Chops with spring greens. And there’s a Bone in Ribeye to share.

Malva Pudding is South Africa’s answer to sticky toffee pudding – a caramelised, moist and spongy dessert with apricot flavour and served with custard.

Tables of eight or more try the Braai feasting menu. Braai is one of the most popular cooking styles in South Africa with sharing plates of King Prawns with Cape Malay Sauce – a key dish that embodies all the richness, diversity, and complexity of South African cuisine, Boerewors, and Butterflied Chicken with Braai Rub.

Vivat Bacchus boasts the biggest South African wine list in London. Delve into the extensive walk-in wine cellars where you’ll find stand-out producers like Meerlust – champions of the Bordeaux Blend in South Africa, Boekenhoutskloof – best known for creating the legendary Chocolate Block, and Rainbow’s End – a family estate renowned for their Cab Francs.
