Ranking right up there on the duh list with the fact that the sun always rises in the east and that fish don’t breathe air is the fact that any food you need a stack of serviettes and wet-wipes to eat is automatically exponentially more tasty than any other foodstuff. Enjoy one of life’s most delicious moments with two Rib and Wing combos from Sticky Fingers BBQ, including a ½ rack of bone-sliding pork ribs, 6 wings tossed in BBQ, hot sauce or teriyaki sauce, crispy fries, beer-battered onion rings and a grilled corn-on-the-cob for R95.
Sometimes, looking at a plate of food neatly framed by a knife and fork can totally kill the little child in you that wants to eat everything from soup to schnitzel with their hands. The ½ rack of bone-sliding glazed pork ribs is the quintessential finger-food that everyone remembers digging in to as a child, uncaring of the sticky and delicious sauce smeared from chin to cheek across their face. Add six wings tossed in a sauce of your choice, as long as it’s BBQ, teriyaki or hot sauce, and you can revel in the fact that it is almost impossible to eat wings with a knife and fork. The crispy fries are the perfect addition, whether you eat them as they are or you simply use them as edible sauce shovels. The beer-battered onion rings however are too delicious to sully their flavour with sauce; an integral part of every meal that includes food, the onion which often reduces people to tears is transformed by the batter and fryer into a mouth-watering miracle that only prompts tears of joy.
If you’re the type that really listened when you’re mama told you to eat all your veggies, you’ll appreciate the corn-on-the-cob that accompanies the veritable meat-party of saucy deliciousness on your plate.
Once the last crumbs and drips of sauce have vanished from your plate, the entire roll of kitchen towel you’re provided with will take on a whole new meaning. The most difficult part of the meal will be deciding whether to use the towel first, or the wet-wipes. Grillin’ everyday till late from their easily accessible spot on Observatory’s Station Road, Sticky Fingers is the perfect place for a saucy lunch, or late-night snack – guaranteed to bring a sauce-covered smile to any face, any time of day.
Little Known World Record: The oddest food-combination ever consumed was a toothpaste, turkey, shredded buffalo-wing and bran-flake, ostrich-egg omelette served with strawberry jam, eaten by the groundskeeper of the great gardens of Japan in the early 2000’s.
