Where to Go: The Good Shepherd

Most of us ex-pats here know the feeling. The moment you step off the plane back into Europe or wherever it is that you may be from, most of us have a hankering for pork products. Bacon, chops, salami, you name it. I found a butcher in Cairo that used to sell pork products, but the problem was that most of his pork meat came from the pigs in Manshiet Nasser - aka garbage city - so you know what those pigs were fed! :-|

In Hurghada, The Good Shepherd butcher offers you the choice of premium pork meat, imported directly from Europe. Yes, it's a little bit pricey, but let's be honest here, wouldn't you pay for a decent BLT every once in a while? ;)

The Good Shepherd - "Think Pig," is located in Hadaba and has a huge variety of meats and cold cuts available on its menu. It's not only limited to pork products, and offers chicken and beef too. Check out a sampling of their price listings and pork products below, taken from their Facebook page.

So where are they exactly? You will find The Good Shepherd at Building 244, Mohamed el-Masy Street, in Hadaba, Hurghada. For more information you can contact them either via their Facebook page, or on 065 345-0977. They offer delivery of pork products throughout Hurghada, so go on, give them a try, you know you want to ;)
