New vegan dishes at Nitida for the month of March include coconut and banana pancakes with pecan nuts and berry compote!
Nitida is adding meat, egg and dairy free dishes to their restaurant menus at both Cassia and Tables, which are located on the Durbanville Wine Valley farm, for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Says restaurant director Warren Swaffield: “We wanted to add something different to our menus and have come up with what we think is a range of dishes that will not only suit vegans but will also surprise those who think plant-based meals are boring, tasteless and limited to only raw vegetables and tofu.”

Diners will be in for a treat when they tuck into dishes from the upmarket Cassia menu such as coconut and banana pancakes with pecan nuts and berry compote for breakfast or tian of lemon and basil risotto, barley and broccoli on a grilled field mushroom and aubergine in a spicy Szechuan sauce served with coconut infused rice which are available for lunch and dinner. Desserts include pumpkin panna cotta with coconut ice cream or vegan crème brulee with pistachio biscotti.
Across the way, family friendly Tables at Nitida’s menu includes chocolate peanut butter and banana flapjacks with a homemade salted date caramel sauce, fresh bananas, seasonal berries and a sweet dukkha with a light icing sugar dusting for breakfast, as well as a vegan BBQ pulled King oyster mushroom sourdough stack with a ginger-sesame mayo drizzle, wild rocket, tomato, pickled cucumbers, topped with onion crisp, crunchy Asian-style slaw and a side of hand cut BBQ salted skinny fries.
Dessert is an enticing vegan chocolate mousse pot, layers of chocolate soil, vegan honeycomb and a homemade vegan lemon curd.
For those who want to enjoy a glass of wine with their lunch or dinner, the award winning Nitida Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon are also vegan friendly.
