UPMARKET COUNTRY KITCHEN
Spice Route in Paarl is a picturesque location bursting with artisan producers. Near enough to CapeTown to attract the hordes of trendsetting hipsters during peak season, October is actually the best time of year to enjoy Spice Route’s many fantastic offerings (unless you prefer the bustling energy of a fully booked venue). One such offering which cannot be ignored is Bertus Basson at Spice Route.This upmarket restaurant serves up traditional South African meals, such as bobotie and Cremora tart, in the laidback style of your mother’s kitchen – if your mother was a celebrated chef, that is. Enjoy a scrumptious meal under the oak trees or on the stoep, and take in the 360° views of the beautiful Paarl Valley, or select the “Pak-’n-Mandjie” option and help yourself to a bottle of wine, artisanal meats, and delicious baked goods to be enjoyed on the lawn.
