Springbok – Daily Food Photo

It’s the end of my first full day in South Africa and pretty much all I did toady in Johannesburg was eat way to much delicious food and have a massage… not a bad day if I do say so myself. One of the tastiest things that I ate today was a new kind of animal meat for me called “Springbok” at the Four Seasons Westcliff Hotels Polo Bar . In Afrikaans Springbok means Jump Antelope and thats exactly what it is, a jumping Antelope. The meat tasted very lean, cooked to a “medium” state served with grapes and a couple tasty sauces, one hot and one savoury along with its own douse of BBQ sauce, it almost melted in my mouth. Springbok is a common dish served in South Africa and other areas of the continent and is something you should definitely try if you get the chance.

Whats the craziest African animal you have ever had a bite of?

    I liked all the boks I tried, and also the pies of many variations. In Hermanus I ate Smoked crocodile.
    I look forward to your journey through SA to add ideas to my 2014 plan to return there.
