Pie and strawberry milk at Ou Meul

Some people travel with purpose along the N2 between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth while others take it nice and easy while on holiday.  Doesn’t matter which one of the two you are one, you always find somewhere to stop, stretch your legs and get something to fill that hollow spot with.  I always like to try out new places and saw a Geocacher recommend a spot in Riviersonderend in the Overberg in a cache description.

His description included the words “some of the best pies this country has to offer” so returning from Cape Town I found my tummy rumbling as I entered the town of Riversonderend.  It was nearly 4pm and I hadn’t had lunch yet after all.  I looked for the Ou Meul bakery and farm stall and pulled over. 

On walking in the pies caught my eye immediately and after long discussions between my tummy and my brain I went for a ham and cheese pie and strawberry milk. Strawberry milk? Yes strawberry milk cause that is what you have with a pie.  Even though it was starting to get late and I had a long way to go, I decided to sit down and savour the pie rather than gulp it down on the run while messing crumbs in my car.  Believe me, the next time I drive through Riviersonderend I will be stopping for an Ou Meul pie again.
