Antie Evelyn se Eetplek

'Antie Evelyn se eetplek' in Nieu Bethesda serves up local flavours township style. Give her a call, talk about what's cooking and get directions to her place, which is not difficult to find.

Evelyn always serves homemade ginger beer and at the end of the meal she’ll make a strong coffee. Dinner is a 3 course affair, with food brought straight out of the kitchen.

Winter menu example:

Soup and traditional bread

A few different veggies like pumpkin, cabbage, samp and beans or spinach

Meat, usually mutton or beef, with rice


Summer menu example:

Cold chicken or curry

Different salads, like coleslaw, garden or bean

Meat and veg


Evelyn said that she also does light meals like bobotie or meatballs, depending on requests, and there are always vegetarian options. She is not licensed but is more than happy for you to take your own beers or wine. The cost is R100pp and you’re allowed to have seconds, or thirds if that’s possible.
