Where in dublin would a fella get his hands on some beef jerky? I have a hankering like you wouldn't believe.

Fallon & Byrne or somewhere obscure on Moore St?

Food for Thought in Carlingford stock biltong, but that's neither what you're looking for nor much use to you if it were. ;)

Oh I don't know, if biltong comes in hickory, teryaki and mesquite flavour I'd be sold.

It doesn't. It does, however, come in kudu, ostrich, beef and springbok flavour. And occasionally chilli. Dammit, I've a craving for chilli bites now. :(

Must search out that SA shop mentioned elsethread...

There's a South African shop somewhere that sells bilitong.

If it's the place I'm thinking of (and there's probably only one), it's off the river end of Capel Street. When you cross the bridge and head onto Capel Street going south, it's the first turn on the right and it's about 50 yards down on the right hand side.

ha, due to the wonders of the internet, I found it here.

I think that's it.
And due to the wonders of the internet, here's its stocklist, which lists a couple of different biltong: http://www.jabula.ie/stocklist.html

Yeeesh! €3.30 for 25g??? You can get half an antelope for that in Namibia! Doesn't stop me craving the damn stuff now, though. *grump*

brucius: Dried meat

The woolshed near the cinema on parnell street sells billtong, if you ask nicely. Also they have a south african cider (can't remember the name) which is truly a taste sensation in the good way, when ya stick a slice of lemon in the bottle neck. Boag's beer, Tasmania's crispest, coolest beer in the 'verse first place contender, is also available, it'll cost ya though.

They have all sorts of other hard to get drink related treats as well, and if you get over the occasional recovered abortion wandering around trying to look like he could eat slate nails while he rips your liver out, it truly is a great spot.
