If you’re in Brisbane and love learning about other cultures, treat yourselves by visiting the South African grocery store Biltong and Jerky Hut, Kallangur.

Why I recommend visiting the shop if you’re looking for couple things to do in Brisbane:

The South African couple that owns the shop offers visitors free samples of biltong and coffee with an invitation to stay and chat for a bit. It’s the perfect place to learn more about the Afrikaner culture if you dream of visiting South Africa one day and would appreciate a taste of the South African hospitality and treats. Or if you are perhaps South African and feeling a bit homesick!

Make it fun by trying to learn a new Afrikaans word from the owners every time you go! If you’re a coffee lover, learning the Afrikaans word “Koffie” is easy!

My top 3 recommendations for things to try and buy at the shop are:

1. Afrikaner Koeksisters – a super sweet, plat-shaped dessert that is a mission to make! It’s also an ideal addition to a romantic picnic surprise or dinner at home after your visit to the shop. Afrikaner koeksisters is so good that of all things it was THE #1 dessert I recommended trying when I was interviewed for a blog on the topic of the most delicious dishes to try all over the world.

2. The Chakalaka Biltong – the tastiest biltong (a form of dried meat) I’ve personally come across and I’m a South African expat so that says a lot!

3. Aromat – it’s the most delicious seasoning to put on eggs or fries!
