Getting back to the topic...

Stopped at Letaba in April last year for Lunch:

Ordered Wilds Pie - none
Ordered Hamburger - none
Ordered Cheese & Tomatoe Sandwich - none
Ordered Plate of chips - Disgusting

Lesson : When there are no stock ... don't eat there ...

PS: They also did not have Coca Cola :evil:

Skilpaadtjies are exactly what Bwana said
I think it was invented by some Ruggard Ranger when his clients needed a cure for a hangover.
The nickname to watch out for is the Pofadder a wors made up of chopped liver, Kidney, Suet(fat), potato and onion. It is great to Braai at Breakfast.

BIGBOB, poffadder is big in Namibia right? I remember my dad many years ago coming back from a trip there and telling me he had poffadder. He said it was very rich.

We tend to steer far away from any marinated meat in the shops. Had some bad experiences with these.

Must confess that when it was still available in the early 80's I had some canned elephant meatballs we bought in the park :shock: :oops:

ROTFLMAO!!! Ok, Ok, I must admit my relief at finding out they aren't real tortoises (tortoi?) is far too overwhelming to mind the joke at my expense :D . Still, in my defense, my husband and his entire family (4th generation Lowvelders) were equally horrified :roll:

Nice little things aren't they. Interesting that nobody at Satara seemed to know how much danger pay the guys got for running behind ellies and plucking their tail hairs out :P

We take our own meat up - in fact something for the what I do thread, I supply Pick 'n Pay Butcheries, hotels - you name them, and a lot of the restaurants in CT.

No offence to the shops in the park, but I don't eat boerewors that comes from anywhere except Woolworths or my deboning factory. As for meat I dont buy anywhere as I get the best quality there is for free!! :D

Last year Aug, we got pulled of in a road block near Phalaborwa to search our car for bek-en-klouseer meat. :lol:

We usually buy from Spar the day before going in. There are a couple of really fantastic Spars in Nelspruit, owned by the same chap. If any of you pass through that way on the N4 when going to the Park I'd really suggest stopping at the one at the Crossings centre - both the butchery and bakery are great.

Interesting what you say about Woolies meat Bwana. Exactly how does this fit in with domain parking? (It's an Angels right to be nosy!)

I buy my meat at home(Pretoria) vacuum pack it and take it with. No sweat no fuss.

PS: Meg does he sell skilpaadjies too? The shelled or de-shelled ones :D
