This is a “must” include in a visit to South Africa by any foodies – yes – when you look at the map – it does appear that this little town is in the middle of nowhere – but look more closely and you will see that a visit works well with experiencing the Garden Route area at the same time.
The garden route is famous for it beauty, its mountains, its forests, its adrenaline activities – but to me as a foodie – it rocks for its oysters, little characterful restaurants like Emily Moon and my favourite little spot – Ile de Pain – a little bakery in Plett where the Belgium husband bakes the breads and his local wife makes delicious creations from it!
Prince Albert is a small village that quite simply loves food! There are all sorts of interesting characters, food products, fresh produce and to top it off – it has a wonderful cooking school called African Relish. Click here to go to the African Relish website.
