MATTHYS, I agree with you. Pofadder is NOT Pofadder without pancreas!

And CuriousCanadian you have to try it..you will be hooked for live.

MATTHYS, the boost in Pofadder is the pancreas!

Skilpadjies sounds very like ScottishHaggis or English Savoury ducks/faggots

this is the best explanation I could find...I once had to explain it to a French customer She had little English and me no French Hilarious!!
A faggot is a kind of meatball, a traditional dish in the UK, especially the Midlands of England. It is made from meat off-cuts and offal, especially pork.A faggot is traditionally made from pig heart, liver and fatty belly meat or bacon minced together, with herbs added for flavouring and sometimes breadcrumbs. The mixture is shaped in the hand into balls, wrapped round with caul fat (the omentum membrane from the pig's abdomen), and baked.

Hi Everyone,
Ok, ok. I'm willing to try any of the above foods but only if the survival rate is above 75%.

PS CuriousCanadian That's a great tiger smilie.

And I`m still here after haggis! Just don`t anyone tease me again about haggis, after all that talk about skilpdjies - proves there`s something similar in almost every culture,

Hi Everyone,
Dotty and Scot are part of the 75% that survived. With that, I think I'll go hide somewhere until they've cooled down.

Gross Theuns! I'd rather eat a real pofadder

As for haggis, I was very disappointed. I thought it would be far worse

...and seems like now the food of the 2R restaurant is either forgotton, or it now tastes like 5-star Grew up in Namibia and had my fill of carrots and tinned pineapple (real pineapple was too scarce and very expensive)

@Rayk - count me in your 75% - I love all the foods discussed, even want to include fried Mopani worms and in July I will enjoy the food at 2R after 8 days in the bush

Location: Vryheid, KZN, SA - too far from the Kruger, further from KTP!
Difficult choice to make: delicious braai and plenty schlep vs. sit down with just ok food and poorish service? My own holiday wine stash might just swing it....
I must say I was surprised at what the kitchen staff can do with a lack of fresh tomato and lettuce - we had pie and steak and CABBAGE??!! that was quite good. I have some vague memory of carrots etc on my plate but was on a high because it was my first time in the park.
As for faggots etc: not that hungry yet!! (But would consider tasting it if I knew the person who made it)
