Stopped in at the Karoo as I suddenly got the craving for some food from home. Had the pap and wors. Wors was good although just one section of sausage. I wish they would offer it as an add on item.

For myself, coming from London, it was not that expensive. Here we pay a lot more for good cooking. I think Karoo is a step up from your average fry-up and prices will reflect this.
