Mrs Simpson’s in Dullstroom came recommended by the sister’s friends for a stop enroute Sabie / Hazyview.
Dullstroom looked like a nice little tourist town with the main street having a bunch of restaurants, cafes and souvenir shops.
We left them all behind to hop in here, but they didn’t seem to have a lot of vegetarian options. Apparently, they can do it, but they need to be informed a day in advance. So our choices were only tagliatelle and a greek salad. We did the pasta two ways, a cheese sauce one for the children and a tomato onion sauce for the adults.
The dessert was the star of the meal. We went with the malva pudding, which is a South African classic. Luxuriously rich, butter laden, very moist, very soft, caramelized and a nice touch of apricots, this is usually served with custard, warm. Less often with ice-cream.
I digged into it here, and through the rest of my trip in South Africa.
Like the name, the decor at Mrs Simpson’s is very English as well. With handbags and shoes strewn all around in here, and funny expressions of speech framed, it was old-world kind charming.
