Our first outing of 2013 was to Oumeul Bakkery. This little bakery is the sister to the original Oumeul in Riviersonderend, which I'm told is somewhere on the N2. I cannot say I've been myself. Apparently they must have a massive following as their "tagline" is all about their famous pies.
Apart from the pies, there is a small but good breakfast menu. For lunch there are a range of salads and sandwiches which all sound devine. And then of course there are the pies. I spotted a board with the usual chicken, steak and all that. But there are some divine-sounding ones I *need* to try like venison and bobotie. Luckily it's around the corner from my new office so I foresee many lunch-time trips.
As it's so close I may have already sampled one or two of their pastries. They sell mini tartlets, milktarts, pasties and cakes. I happen to know that the pecan pie can change lives.
Brenda's products. If you've ever had the balsamic glaze then you understand how amazing these babies are.
