Any restaurant serving game meat in Nelspruit?

Hi all,

if you have any tip would you please share? I will sleep one night in Nelspruit on my way to Swaziland and I'd like to try some good local stuff if possible!

Also, any place to buy biltong?

thanks!

In most shopping malls up in that area and ( many others) they do have Biltong e.g. Pick and Pay etc. My hub often got those snack packs there and tried many different types of game meat. It’s a bit like Oysters (an acquired taste). I won’t start WW 3 about either, as I am sure a flood of opinions will come back to haunt me, suffice to say your jaw will get a good workout. Game meat is served in many local places throughout SA. Check with the locals as to the best restaurants specialising in that cuisine.

I think if you want to add more to your list for good local stuff to try a semi spicy sausage called Boerewors tis worth a mention as well. I think it gives traditional German sausages a run for their money. There are many varieties but a braai cooked one (i.e. BBQ) one is delicious unless you’re on a diet or a vegan (which you’re obviously not) ~~

Most supermarkets will sell biltong. Some shopping malls have specialist biltong shops.

Having tried them, Biltong is, IMO far superior to beef jerky (U.S.A.), and Australian Kangaroo Jerky .. yes, there is such a thing, and my Staffordshire Bull terrier even refused to eat it, though he loves biltong. One sniff, and he walked away. Never seen a dog refuse a "meaty treat" before!!

You should also try Droë wors.... a spicy sausage, dried in the same manner as biltong .. delicious!
