Cape Town’s latest foodie hotspot, Eye Bar at Vïb Cape Town, has added exciting, contemporary-style fresh sushi to its offering. Eye Bar opened in late December 2020 and is now serving patrons in its ground-floor bar, lounge, restaurant and open-air terrace, as well as on its scintillating pool deck that affords epic views over Green Point and the ocean.
The newly introduced sushi menu at Eye Bar has been conceptualised by the popular sushi go-to known as Maaya. A modern and vibrant Japanese/Peruvian restaurant and venue, Maaya is located on Loop St in Cape Town and has become known for serving unexpected yet delicious fusion-style sushi. Maaya and Eye Bar have collaborated to bring you the freshest of flavours, whether it’s your favorite standard roll or an exciting new combination.
In consultation with Maaya’s team, Eye Bar’s new contemporary sushi menu was finalized by the hotel’s Culinary Operations Manager, chef Johann Breedt. Introduced recently on 20 January 2021, the new sushi menu includes all-time favorites such as salmon and tuna rolls with avocado and Japanese mayonnaise, and the ever-classic panko prawn rolls.
But from there it gets much more exciting. If you have a taste for adventure, explore a river of flavour in the form of The Amazon Roll - salmon, tuna, avocado, cream cheese and Japanese mayonnaise. Then there’s something called Trust Me. Put any doubts aside. You really can invest your taste buds in this delectable assemblage of marinated salmon, caramelized salmon, avocado and mango. And even if you’re still not confident in trying new things, the Eight Assassins will slay any lingering fears you might have. The tuna tartare, seared tuna, avocado and strawberry will wrap you in a taste sensation you’ll immediately want to repeat.
Vegetarians also get the Royal treatment. There is an exciting veggie morsel in the form of the Sofia, which rolls together pineapple, avocado and asparagus, accompanied by a homemade sweet and spicy sauce.
Eye Bar’s sushi menu is available from Wednesday to Sunday from 12h00 to 19h30 during lockdown Level 3. If you wish to dine on the Vïb Cape Town rooftop deck and make use of the pool facilities afterwards, there is a minimum spend requirement of R300 per person.
Eye Bar takes reservations for lunch and dinner. Current opening hours are from 06h30 to 20h00. Outside of lockdown curfew, the regular closing time is 23h00. Eye Bar is open 7 days a week, 365 days a year, including Public Holidays.
