The USA’s biggest and baddest sporting event is back this month…
Girls, are you ready for some football? American football that is! Noted as one of the biggest and greatest sporting events in the United States, the Super Bowl will celebrate the big 5-0 this year and the National Football League is sure to pull out all the stops to make this year’s game spectacular! This year, the Denver Broncos go head to head with the Carolina Panthers at the Levi’s Stadium in San Francisco to see who will take home the Vince Lombardi Trophy.
Even if the game itself is not your cup of tea, all the delicious food is reason enough to celebrate! Super Bowl Sunday is a day to indulge in foods you would typically shy away from. We’re talking cheesy nachos, spicy chicken wings and stacks of pizza. But remember, calories don’t count during the Super Bowl, so why not round up your group of friends and celebrate this beloved American tradition?
Where to Eat and Drink
Stone Nullah Tavern
Stone Nullah Tavern is hosting an awesome Super Bowl extravaganza with an epic build-your-own nacho bar… but sadly, tables are all booked up! Keep this one on your radar for next year though girls so you can book in early.

Did someone say chicken wings? The Diner in Central whips up delectible chipotle chicken wings along with other Super Bowl faourites like crispy onion rings, beef and pork sliders, and mac ‘n’ cheese.

Subs (sandwiches) are a Super Bowl staple and a clear favourite at any Super Bowl party. Sunday’s Grocery has some not so traditional subs, but they’re definitely scrumptious… we recommend the chicken schnitzel. You won’t be disappointed!

Get ready to break out the face-paint and football jerseys, Sassy Girls, it’s going to be a great game! Super Bowl 50 will be airing live in Hong Kong on Monday, 8 February at 7am, which means you’ll have to forgo that lie in… but trust the Americans at Team Sassy, it will be worth it! Which team are you rooting for?!
