  1. I have never, ever, seen real South African biltong in NY or any product calling itself biltong. Some of the Asian jerky's come close to the preparation style and flavor, but not with all the different and interesting types of game they have in SA, just beef and pork. When I was in SA two years ago I bought 1/4 kilo each of eight different biltongs to bring home. None of them made it through the last three weeks of my voyage... tasty.

    Note: I just found out about some Ex-pat South Africans in Scarsdale who are making and selling biltong, boerewors, and droewors, they have a hige braii each summer as well.

    Here's a place in CA to order from:

    Here's a place in NC:

    And for Kosher biltong:

    1. Thanks so much, JMF, these links are much appreciated!!

      1. I once asked the proprietor of the Madiba ZA restaurant in Brooklyn where he gets his biltong and he directed me to the folks at the NC link that JMF provided above.

        I sooo bummed that I missed the Scarsdale event in August... :( That would have been great!
