The name EVITA SE PERRON was inspired by its location as the former Darling Station. Perron in Afrikaans means ‘station platform’ and Evita is also the name of South Africa’s most famous white woman …. Mrs Evita Bezuidenhout.
Tannie Evita was known as the best cook in the old National Party; die beste kok in die ou Nasionale Party, and she has now moved on to cook for the ANC in Luthuli House.
Tannie Evita's two cookbooks, Evita’s Kossie Sikelela and Evita’s Bossie Sikelela, are available at the Perron bookstall in the A & C (Arts and Crafts) shop. Naturally, Evita's iconic bobotie and legendary koeksisters are available at the Perron café, as well as many other delights, all out of Evita’s kitchen.
So book to see a show and add lunch to your treat. Bambi’s Berlin Bar (named after Evita’s sister Bambi Kellermann, much to Tannie’s disgust) will supply you with the best in local wines and beers.
