Less dry than jerky I think. Often its eaten still moist and pink inside.

Biltong is delicious and one of the things I miss most about South African snack food!

Another unique, but rarely eaten South African thing are Mopane Worms.
I do remember now she said it was springbok. Quite tasty, I love jerky!

Nothing too bizzare considering the items already mentioned, but I grew up in the PNW eating venison.

Buffalo
Deer
Elk
Moose
Antelope
Rabbit
Gator
Tacos in Tijuana, not sure what was in them

  3. Durian
  4. Foie gras (not so bizarre)
