This Winter Head to SA’s Best BBQ Restaurant – Vadas Smokehouse & Bakery

Sunny winter days offer enjoyment along the historic Spier Werf, where children can play freely on natural rock formations. Colder days book you a spot inside near the cosy fireplaces or on the popular bakery terrace amongst the bustle of the bakers. Vadas Smokehouse & Bakery offer seating options for the entire family, come rain or shine.

With a new winter menu, guests can also enjoy the Vadas Smokehouse & Bakery winter special. From Monday-Saturday, Vadas is slicing 50% off its Chefs Platter. For just R200 pp feast on 8 dishes carefully selected by Chef PJ to showcase the best of what’s on the menu.
New on the winter menu includes Roast pumpkin & sage arancini with cheese custard; corn battered Jalapeño chillies stuffed with feta & served with chipotle aioli; smoked brisket and BBQ sauce; Kansas-city pulled pork; beets with feta, naartjies, dukkha and elderflower and the ever-popular fire roasted broccoli with mustard cider vinaigrette, smoked Stanford cheese & macadamia nuts.

Vadas Smokehouse & BakeryThe revamped menu now boasts indicators of which dishes are gluten free, vegetarian and vegan on request, ensuring there is something on the menu for everyone to enjoy.
Although chef PJ Vadas has become increasingly favored by his vegetarian regulars for innovative meat-free dishes, the restaurant still offers the best BBQ meats in SA. All meats are cooked fresh every day in the custom smoker for 12-16 hours.
