On 21 September 2017, a new destination for food, drinks, and Friday night DJ sets crashed onto Kloof Street. Tiger’s Milk is an exciting addition to the area, and has succeeded in establishing smooth service and a quality offering from their opening day. The OKCID area boasts a fantastic array of venues and brands for dining, drinking, and partying, and Tiger’s Milk promises to rival the existing destinations.
The menu is broad and well executed. Whether you’re looking for a delicious crispy pizza from their newly installed pizza oven, a burger picked from their offering of exciting flavour combinations, or a lighter meal from their tasty salad menu, Tiger’s Milk has you covered. Their experience opening branches in Lynnwood, Stellenbosch, Bryanston, Century City, Claremont and Long Street means they have established supply chains of quality produce, and this shines through.
Tiger’s Milk grew from humble beginnings into a Muizenberg institution, and has now evolved into an eight-branch operation. Although the new Kloof Street branch doesn’t feature surfboard racks or post-surf showers, their initial motivation to ride surfing culture towards quality food and drink with a festive atmosphere remains evident.
The space, with entrances on both Rheede Street and Kloof Street, has stood empty for some time since Chef Peter Veldsman closed his restaurant ‘Emily’s’. It’s particularly rousing to see the arrival of Tiger’s Milk transform a vacant lot into a vibey space bustling with happy customers. Their outside space is beautifully decorated with strings of festoon lights and carefully selected plants, making it the perfect location for sunny evening drinks in town.
The drinks menu is extensive, including home brewed draughts, a variety of wines from a number of different estates and ciders as well as the usual offering of soft drinks. In addition, the cocktail menu from Tiger’s Milk is sure to attract serious attention! There are unique twists on well-known favourites, such as the Apricot & Bacon Old-Fashioned, and the Thyme & Mango Margarita, which will engage even regular cocktail drinkers.
With such an attractive cocktail list, and a prime location for office workers, Tiger’s Milk was always primed to attract crowds for bites after work and evening drinks. They have worked hard to encourage this by focussing on every detail for atmosphere, including the music. A specialist restaurant music playlist producer has curated the tracks played in the bar. They’re also positioning themselves as the best place to kick off your weekend, with DJ René lined up to play a set each Friday 16h00 – 22h00.
As spring arrives, Tiger’s Milk with gorgeous outside space might just become your new favourite haunt for food, drinks, and good times. Free Wi-Fi means it’s a convenient spot for everything from a working coffee during the day to date night drinks or dinner, plus everything in between!
