Franschhoek is synonymous with wine and French cuisine, but that’s not all this little town is about.
Just outside town, at Wilder, gin, schnapps and grappa are distilled. At Huguenot Fine Chocolates and the De Villiers Chocolate Café on the main street, chocolate in just about every form imaginable is available on the menu, and, at the Tuk Tuk Microbrewery, beer-lovers’ taste buds are tantalised and refreshed.
At Tuk Tuk, you get Indian decor with Mexican cuisine. Owned by Analjit Singh, the paintbrush of artist Siraj Saxaman reinforces the atmosphere at the boutique brewery and restaurant.
