The first of its kind in the U.S., Biltong Bar brings South African fare to the Central Food Hall of highly renowned Ponce City Market since early 2016. Biltong Bar features organic, all-natural South African dry aged beef jerky, otherwise known as biltong, and other specialty jerky meats, alongside gourmet hand pies and South African-inspired snacks, sandwiches and plates. In addition to the impressive bar boasting craft cocktails, local brews and a full wine list, Biltong Bar offers a retail portion from which guests can purchase South African spices, rubs and house-made sauces.
What is “biltong?” Biltong is a traditional South African snack, something you’d find natives eating out of a paper bag while strolling the streets. It’s the South African version of beef jerky – all natural, air-dried, packed with protein and cut from the best meat. Whether it’s beef, ostrich, venison or elk, served by the slab or fresh sliced, it’s preservative free, dried right here in Atlanta and is easily enjoyed on its own or on top of some of your favorite snacks.
