There is a lovely new deli come restaurant in Stellenbosch called the Wild Peacock Food Emporium, conveniently located in Piet Retief Street, which is just off Dorp Street.
You can sit outside on the veranda under the oaks, or inside in the bustling little shop.
Its owned by the Baker family who are well known for their wholesale food distribution company ‘Wild Peacock’, which sells an amazing array of fine foods to the trade.
In many ways the Wild Peacock Food Emporium is an extension of this business, plus they have added a restaurant with a very pleasing breakfast and lunch menu. Making use of many of the superb and carefully sourced products, its well worth a visit.
We ate the wild mushroom pate which was beautifully presented with bread sticks and flat bread, and the pot of ‘Ma Bakers’ mussels with chips and home made mayonnaise. Delicious!
With a treasure trove of exotic and rare foods, you will not leave empty handed. I cant wait to go back and nibble on a few oysters with a nice chilled glass, or rather lets be realistic about this, a bottle of bubb.
