Getting fully into the rugby sevens spirit, the team at SATS Delaware North, master caterers for the Singapore Sports Hub, have prepared a winning line-up of rugby-themed and classic Singaporean delicacies to feed the masses at the HSBC Rugby Sevens 2018 Makan Hub.

With teams and fans coming in from every corner of the rugby world, the menu on offer at this year’s Sevens (28-29 April) offers something for everyone, from the hungriest forward to the sleekest back, with an array of filling delights that reflects the cosmopolitanism of both the World Rugby HSBC Sevens Series and Singapore.

The menu for the Makan Hub in 2018 comprises 10 international and local delicacies that will be sure to whet the appetites of all rugby fans and keep them primed to enjoy two days of non-stop rugby action and entertainment at the HSBC Singapore Rugby Sevens.

These offerings are only a fraction of the wide array of food and beverage on offer during the tournament weekend.

The menu was conceptualised and prepared by SATS Delaware North Executive Chef Mr Garry Edgley.

Like the teams fighting it out for Sevens glory on the pitch, Chef Garry has his own track record of performing under pressure in a heated environment, with a 35-year career that spans different parts of the world, including China, Austria and rugby mad nations like England and Australia.

“For the Singapore Sevens, we try to bring in a nice cross section of cuisines from all over the world, from Australia to South Africa, as well as local favourites for foreign visitors who want to sample what is popular here in the region,” said Chef Edgley.

“Singapore is a real melting pot, so we try to bring in a little bit of everything to keep all of our visitors happy at the stadium,” he added.

Amongst the unique rugby-influenced dishes on offer during tournament weekend are some cherished delicacies with an emotional appeal for travelling rugby fans, including the classic sausage roll, the staple of rugby clubs and pubs the world over, and a traditional favourite at rugby stadiums in Australia in particular.

This homemade beef sausage roll is perfectly crispy on the outside with a rich serving of minced beef inside and a tomato chutney to add some Singaporean spice to the occasion. Expect a scrum when these sausage rolls come out piping hot from the oven.

South Africa currently top the World Rugby HSBC Sevens Standings and as a reward for hard work put in this season, the team at SATS Delaware North are offering a South African favourite, Boerewors sausage with grilled onions. This South African sausage is a staple of braais (South African for barbeque) across the country and will certainly be a favourite of the large contingent of South African fans expected through the turnstiles next weekend.

In honour of defending HSBC Singapore Rugby Sevens champions Canada, Chef Garry and the team are serving up a Canadian specialty, Poutine - French fried potatoes topped with pulled pork in its own gravy.

In a delightful contrast to seven-a-side rugby where speed is of the essence, Chef Garry and his team are pulling out all the stops for their Poutine, which is slow cooked in the oven for 12 hours with French fries piled high with gravy-laden pulled pork and a soupcon of chopped spring onions over top.

Fans from Canada’s neighbors to the south, the USA, will also have something to get to grips with in the slow-cooked Chicago beef brisket roll with cheese and mixed pickles.

Chef Garry will have the crowds chanting ‘Ole!’ with his tribute to Spain’s sizzling sevens team and the nation’s classic cuisine with an addictive Churros platter.

A daily staple for the fun loving Spanish Churros are a fried dough pastry that will come coated with more cinnamon, sugar and chocolate sauce than tacklers on a Fijian winger breaking away down the touchline.

Of course, the team at SATS Delaware North will be flying Singapore’s culinary flag proudly this weekend, serving up a storm of everyone’s favourite Singaporean classics from soto ayam, murtabak served with curry sauce, prawn laksa, satay chicken and assorted wok fried seafood topped with chilli crab.

Outside of who raises the Cup on Sunday evening, the only question remains which menu item will be most popular for the thousands of local and international visitors to the Sevens in 2018.

While 192 star players will be going at it hammer and tongs to score tries on the pitch, fans visiting the Makan Hub won’t have to put up with any aggravation at all, as they ‘try’ all of the spectacular dishes on the menu at the HSBC Singapore Rugby Sevens Makan Hub.
