The house biltong is made from traditional grass-fed or aged beef, among other options, and thin little slices often have a richness that’s worthy of a platter or cheese board.
New York Biltong is going further than the spiced dried meat. The store also sells droëwors, which are dried meat sausages, boerewors — ground meat sausages seasoned with spices like coriander and nutmeg — and a selection of sausage rolls and meat pies with fillings like steak and mushroom, and lamb curry.

Helmed by Brittney Brothers and Camran St. Luce, New York Biltong is the only storefront in the Northeast serving all-natural, grass-fed and USDA approved biltong that is freshly cut and prepared to exacting preferences.
