It is called the #GoodFoodTrain. It is the luxurious PremierClasse of South Africa. Of course, a train known for its lovely accommodation, pleasant lounge cars and excellent service, also won’t lack in the meals that are served to its guests.
Of course, breakfast is scrumptious and starting the day in this great way already is a sign of things to come. Fresh fruit juice, cereals with milk or yogurt, then a platter of eggs to order, a lavish portion of bacon with sausage and salad. Toast with butter and jam. Tea, coffee.
A three-course feast that will satisfy the hungry soul.
A choice of delectable chocolate cake or carrot cake with a hint of spiciness.
A five-course offering taking the palate on a pleasant culinary journey. These dinners build upon a tradition dating back perhaps six or seven decades.
Ending the day’s food celebration with the signature cheese & biscuits is a long standing tradition. Almost forty years ago, we anticipated dinner eagerly on the predecessors of the Premier Classe. Dining on South Africa’s long distance trains accumulated a cult following over the decades. Nothing has changed, it is the same time-proven superlative service. Or, maybe it has even improved.
