Painting the town neon


On 15 November, SuperSport Park lit up as walkers, runners and just-for-funners painted Pretoria in a myriad of colours at this year’s Neon Run. The day’s rainy weather didn’t keep the event from being a success, as many showed up for the 5km route in their best and brightest neon outfits.

Eat at UP: Travel with your taste buds

Eat@UP is a restaurant that serves a three course lunch based on the cuisine of different parts of the world every Tuesday and Thursday. The food is prepared by  third-year hospitality management students.

 The simplistic yet classy décor gives an impression of a gourmet hotel.

The theme for the day was Boerekos. The meal started off with a starter of biltong salad served with fresh strawberries, avocado and blue cheese drizzled with balsamic vinaigrette. The paradox of flavours was unexpected but tasty. This was followed by a refreshing orange, lemon, naartjie and fresh mint sorbet palate cleanser.

The main course consisted of mustard chicken wrapped in strips of bacon, cucumber sambal, traditional pap bake served with rooibos, apricot and peach chutney. The pap was presented in a way that resembled lasagne, with layers of chutney. The well-seasoned chicken and bacon double was something for the meat eaters.  The cucumber sambal added colour to the plate.

Malva pudding was served with Amarula flavoured milk tart ice-cream and an almond biscuit crumble for dessert.

For drinks, a selection of red and white wine, juice, tea and coffee was available.

Student Nikita Ferreira was the head chef for the day. She told Perdeby that they are given the theme months before, in order to prepare well for the ingredients, execution and presentation. 

For something different from the usual burger, doughnut or pie, this is definitely a place to visit on campus.
