The History of Eat Sum More – South African Meats & Grocery Store

south african cuisine

Our story begins with my late oupa and ouma -George and Leah Slimowitz in Vanderbijlpark. They owned and operated a butchery called The Golden Highway Butchery – and people used to come from miles away to stock up on their meat for the month, and in particular the Biltong, Droewors and Boerewors.

Going to the slaughterhouse early in the morning with my oupa, watching him select his choice of meat for the store, unbeknownst to me at the time, would come in good standing in years to come. Back at the butchery my oupa used to mumble in Yiddish “It’s all in de spices” whilst making Biltong.

My late father, Louis Slimowitz had a number of butcheries in Klerksdorp and Stillfontein, and he also used to mutter, “It’s all in the spices”. Growing up in a farm environment in Ficksburg, I was always given the task of spicing the meats and I quickly became the mutterer of “It’s all in the spices”.

Now in our 3rd generation Slimowitz family grocery store, headed up by the family matriarch, our mother Rita, we still mutter, “It’s all in the spices”. We import all of our spices from South Africa and blend them in the store to produce the finest Biltong, Drywors, Chili Bites, Shavings and Boerewors, which people still travel for miles to acquire.

We encourage you to visit our online store where we offer no contact, curbside pick-ups and speedy home deliveries.

We Sell the Finest South African Curry Products On The Market

Whether the recipe includes a layer of grilled ripe bananas, heavy on the box spices or adding six tablespoons of sugar, CURRY in all its iterations is as close as South Africa comes to a national dish.

When you talk about the cuisine of South Africa, a culturally and ethnically diverse country with no less than 11 official languages, curry comes up in the first breath.

On South Africa’s palm tree-lined east coast, within the humid port city of Durban, a unique style of Indian cuisine has evolved over the course of 158 years. Locals say you can’t leave before you try one of their Durban curries: smoldering hot mutton curry studded with potato chunks called “gravy soakers”; fiery fish curry spiked with black tamarind and curry leaves; or bunny chow, a hollowed-out quarter-loaf of white bread filled with curry.

If you are looking to recreate some of these famous National dishes or any of your own delicious creations, here are some of the curry products that we carry in-store to help you achieve that goal:

  • Packo Achars & Masala
  • Rajah Curry Powders
  • Cartwright Curry Powders
  • Nice and Spicy Curry Spices
  • Ina Paarman Tikka Sauce
  • Chicken Durban Curry
  • Something South African Cape Malay Curry & Spicy Durban Curry
