The upcoming Food Festival at the Renaissance Marketplace promises to be a day of shopping, games, eating, drinking and lots of music. The Festival customarily draws quite a lot of people and Saturday, October 13, will not be any different, we expect.
At CILO City Lounge, the cool, marina-view restaurant and lounge on the corner of the Marketplace will have a special attraction: executive chef Bas Kuurstra will be outside at the grill, making grilled fruit skewers! These skewers form part of a special Food Festival Menu, but all the (healthy) options can also be ordered separately.
The menu starts off with two appetizers of $ 7.50: tuna tartare with mayonnaise and fried plantains or a salad with bay scallops and a balsamic syrup. It continues with two $ 15.—entrée options, mini chicken skewers with peanut sauce, shrimp crackers and atjar or a grouper lasagna with a pesto cream sauce and vegetables.
Dessert ($ 7.50) is going to be outrageously delicious: a fruit skewer with mango, pineapple, apple, strawberry, melon and banana, served with a vanilla-yoghurt dip and a blueberry coulis. The 3-course menu costs $ 25.—per person, so it is an irresistible deal for everyone in the Renaissance Marketplace on October 13. Enjoy!
