Funny looking leather pants, Oompah music, elongated dogs, scantily clad barmaids, Nobel Prize winning physicists, and Eisbein come from a funny little mythical settlement called Germania. While the jury’s still out on Oompah music, arguably the best thing to come out of Germania is Eisbein. Enjoy this folk favourite hunk of meat and a Malva pudding dessert for R85 at Dros Menlyn.
Face it, there’s nothing better than tossing your beard over your shoulder, shifting your cutlery aside, loosening your belt and sinking your teeth deep into a steaming piece of tender Eisbein. Dros Menlyn is the home of the biggest Eisbein in the village of Pretoria. The Eisbein is drenched in Dros’s exclusive secret sauce and a helping of lip-smacking Malva pudding.
Dros is like that Inn, inhabited by locals who love to give probing glances to travellers passing through . Except, new faces are treated with Dros’ famous hospitality and without patron’s who say things like; “You’re not from around here.” Instead, you’ll only hear choruses of “You can’t get enough of a good thing.”
Eisbein Fact: Eisbein was traditionally used as weapons by ancient Saxons. This was a practical military decision that spared soldiers the discomfort of lugging about both food rations. It is historically considered how the legendary battle creed: “I shall hit you with my chunk of pork,” was born.
