Greetings Warlights

We've discussed language, flags, wars and now we head to something more controversial: food.

We start with my favourites, anyone else can feel free to chime in since food is a very subjective topic.


  • Biltong, there are no vegetarian South Africans for this reason. Some Americans might say that biltong is simply jerky, I must admit I can't say anything on this since I've never had jerky. Biltong is basically dried up salty meat.
  • Malva pudding, this is my favourite dessert. Just awesome, best with custard.
  • Gatsby, its like a sub but better and cheaper and will cause more cholesterol.
  • melktert(milk tart), this is an awesome dessert that goes well with tea and what have you.

    Other notable South African foods:
  • Bunny chow
  • Rusks- which you must have with FUCKING TEA, if you have it raw you're an idiot. I saw a youtube clip of foreigners eating rusks and they said it tasted weird.
  • potjiekos(pot food)- this is tricky since its basically different kinds of stew
  • vetkoek(fat cake)- just yum
  • koeksisters- really sweet, personally this is too sweet for my taste.



    If there is any other food that is fascinating from your home country, do post.

    A lot of this food looks awful to me. But food is subjective so it's not like my opinion matters in regards to your tastes :)

    Gaufrettes Waffles but in biscuit form. Suits perfect with coffee or tea.
    Belgian Waffles (Gaufres de Liège, Luikse Wafels) : Very delicious UMM!!! Occasionally sold on fairs and braderies and also to find in specific waffle stores for tourists. Frequently to find in Brussels.
    Mussels with Fries (Moules-Frites, Mosselen met Frieten) : very popular dish to find in restaurants. Traditionally served with Belgian beer. This dish is widely associated as the trademark of the Belgian cuisine.

    I don't have much of a sweet tooth. I have a very "American southerner" taste pallet.
