A female pig that hasn’t had piglets is called a ‘Gilt’, how rude, she could just be a modern-thinking pig. Whereas a pig that has had piglets is called a ‘Sow’, because they look haggard and tired all the time, after all you reap what you sow. The Sow’s raise their piglets to be the best eisbein in the world and they’re making pigs everywhere very proud. Enjoy a German eisbein (ham hock) with sauerkraut and sautéed potatoes washed down with a Hansa draft at Siggi’s German Restaurant & Pub for R52.
Situated in Ballito Bay and nestled between beautiful greenery, Siggi’s is revered as a wonderful place to enjoy good food and hugely popular with many foreign guests that have graced the restaurant’s doorstep. Opened by Chris Schaedle and Chris Kossmann in October 2008, Siggi’s bases it’s ethos of great hospitality and excellent food on that of Siggi Shaedle’s Country Hotel in the Natal Midlands. Chris Schaedle spent his life in the hotel and restaurant trade and he takes great pride in continuing his family’s legacy.
Experience a genuine German dish the way it should be prepared. Eisbein is the German name for a dish of ham hock. Even though the meat is tender it needs to be cooked or braised for a long time ensuring full flavour and softness. Siggi’s is going to give you a genuine German experience with their exceptionally ambrosial dish of ham hock served in the traditional way with sautéed potatoes and sauerkraut. Wash down this delightful meal that’s fit for a king, with an ice-cold 300ml Hansa draft - it’s definitely better than dessert.
Head over to Siggi’s with your Groupon and enjoy their dynamite food, service and fantastic ambience, although you are asked not to joyously cry over your delicious meal as it makes the meat extremely salty and just destroys the taste and all the ambitions that Sows have for their offspring.Food for thought: There are no more pigs wondering around Gat-Sonder-Water because the lack of water is bad for their delicate skin. They learned this valuable lesson from fashion magazines, and are now considering forming a union forcing their handles to smother them in UV50 and give them regular facials.
