SA Meat Shops Calgary

This is one of those places you drive by and wonder - what goes on in there... ?
Well, after numerous drive by's I stopped in with my toddler about two months ago. I've never been to South Africa, but we tried some of the sausages and steaks based on the recommendations of the friendly South African staff. It's now become a (pricey and meaty) regular weekly stop for us. My 3 yr old daughter adores the droë wors dried beef sausage, which is pretty plain, but delicious, and flavoured with coriander. It’s a guaranteed way to get her protein. Apparently many kids love this stuff. I’m partial to the chilly bites - which pack some heat and are highly addictive. We've also tried the fresh droë wors (beef and pork) and marinated steaks, which were great. All in all a good find if you're a carnivore of any nationality.

  1. I haven't been able to get down there in a while, but this is a great place! They have great pies too. I have tried the Chicken Piri Piri and Steak pies, awesome, flaky pastry. They used to also carry pretty decent lamb sausage, but the last time I was in, I was told they only make it on special order now.

    They also carry some SA groceries the Choc-kits!
