A couple of weeks ago a group of friends and I went to The Spice Route. Some of us had been there before and some on us, like me really wanted to go – so one evening over supper we planned the event. When I told people that we were going there I was asked why it’s called The Spice Route. I was also told that they don’t know how it got it’s name as there was no spice there. I’m not sure which part of The Spice Route they went to but I found lots of spice there.
In case you missed the spice, the main spice shop is found to the left of the entrance. There’s a small cottage type building called Brenda’s deli. This shop was amazing. It has just about any type of spice you can imagine, as well as jams and other preserves. We also found a few spices in the cured meats shop, as well as some more preserves.
There is so much to do there – craft beer tasting, chocolate tasting, gin tasting (I think), pizza, biltong and hamburgers to be eaten, as well as yummy cakes, ice-cream and fresh juices to try. It really is a food sensory explosion of wonderful tastes and food experiences. There’s also great shops to explore, glass blowing to watch and lush grassy areas to lounge on.
Everything about the place was amazing. It really is worth the visit- just make sure you plan to spend the whole day there so you can try everything. Also take a bunch of awesome people known as friends to make the day more fun.
