A new look at Lala Lapa

Talk of the Town - - News -

ala Lapa Lodge in Kleinemonde was bought by the Louw fam­ily about a year ago, and they have run the con­ve­nience store as well as the restau­rant, butch­ery and four chalets (com­pletely re-vamped), which have all been ex­tremely pop­u­lar.

The restau­rant and pub have also been ren­o­vated and up­graded.

Su­mari Kruger runs the restau­rant and

Lac­com­mo­da­tion side of the busi­ness, while her part­ner, Jo­hannes Venter, man­ages the pub and butch­ery. When they re­cently closed the con­ve­nience store, they do­nated items to Port Al­fred Li­ons mem­ber Neville Wil­liamson to dis­trib­ute at his dis­cre­tion.

Wil­liamson of­fered Talk of the Town the goods for our Santa Se­nior Shoebox cam­paign.

We need as much as we can get, so two Talk of the Town staff went along to col­lect the boxes.

Thank you to all at Lala Lapa for your gen­er­ous do­na­tion.

We were also of­fered lunch at the Lala Lapa restau­rant and were sur­prised by the com­pre­hen­sive menu to cater for all tastes.

The pizza I chose was hon­estly one of the best piz­zas I have tasted in a long time, and rea­son­ably priced too. The pork chops and mash with a side of salad also looked scrump­tious and tender.

Ev­ery night there are pop­u­lar spe­cials for un­der R60, as well as an a la carte menu. The meat looks par­tic­u­larly ex­cel­lent, all from their own butch­ery.

There is reg­u­lar en­ter­tain­ment and quiz evenings are held by Neville Wil­liamson.

After lunch we popped into the butch­ery, which sources its top-qual­ity meat from up-coun­try. They de­liver daily to Port Al­fred and sur­round­ing ar­eas.

This is a real gem that is of­ten for­got­ten, but worth the trip. We will cer­tainly be go­ing back.

For in­for­ma­tion or book­ings, or to or­der fab­u­lous meat, give them a call on 046-675-1091.
