Chisa Nyama (Braai) spots in Soweto

Braai Information

The one thing all South Africans have in common is our love of braai. Lighting a fire and cooking some meat on the resultant coals. Whether you like cricket, soccer or rugby, having a braai before, during or after the game is part if the package. With rugby moving to Soweto this weekend, some braaiers will be in foreign territory. In townships like Soweto, as in many other places in South Arica, braai and braaing is also known as Chisa Nyama.

You buy your meat at the Chisa Nyama. Fires, coals, grids and braaiers are supplied. At many a Chisa Nyama you are allowed to bring your own drinks, but supporting the local entrepreneurs is an even better idea.
