RWC: Finger snacks fans’ favourite food

2011-09-14 00:00

CELERY and carrots make for a healthy snack while watching 30 men trampling over each other to fulfil their nation’s dreams of winning the 2011 Rugby World Cup.

But while finger snacks are a firm favourite in sport pubs, naturally a braai must be fired up or it’s not a real South African rugby experience.

KZN Rugby Union Midlands development chairperson Pius Mnikathi said he loves his peanuts and occasionally some tea.

His children adore chips and stay glued to the screen until the last whistle.

Gregory Adams, Sharks stock controller, declares he is a biltong and braai supporter and nothing beats a boerewors roll and burgers.

A number of sport pubs are screening the rugby matches in Pietermaritzburg.

The owner of Stagecoach,

Jake Jackobs, said patrons prefer finger foods like samoosas, chicken winglets and strips.

“Students enjoy a plate of chips while watching,” he said.

Keg and Hedgehog manager David Rawlins said patrons can’t get enough of deep-fried calamari, crumbed mushrooms and meatballs.

Snack trays and baskets and all the finger treats would not be complete without beer, and Rawlins said patrons go for the local brews.
