TIPS AND TRICKS  |  FEB 29, 2024


Make the Most out of Braai Season

Pull out the braai stand and call your friends and family over; it’s time to celebrate and enjoy the sunny days. Whether it’s a switch up on the normal Sunday lunch or a get-together to watch your favourite sports team, your braai days are sorted as long as you have The Glen Shopping Centre by your side. In this article, we will plug you with the right essentials to cook up and braai up a storm without doing too much of the heavy lifting. 

First Up, the Meat

What’s a braai without the essential component, huh? If you have guests who like different cuts or types of meat, you want to cater to all their needs without breaking your budget. The Glen Shopping Centre’s Checkers has meat galore. From steaks to shanks, and even chicken and fish options for your pollotarian and pescetarian loved ones. Trusted by many braai masters and chefs in South Africa, Checkers has earned its stripes for providing customers with flavourful, clean, and reasonably priced meat. Put together a list of what everyone prefers eating, and work your way around it with Checkers by your side. 

Don’t Forget the Biltong

Nothing says ‘organised get-together’ like small platters of snacks while you get your meat braaing and cooking. Turn it up a notch and give your guests some biltong, nuts, and snacks to excite their palate and become the ultimate braai master. Visit Mr Biltong at The Glen Shopping Centre and get a variety of cuts and flavours for your guests and yourself to enjoy. 

If You Want the Braai Without the Smoke

Maybe you’re the type of braai master who prefers curating instead of creating your smokey dishes. Fear not; The Glen Shopping Centre is home to Nando’s, Mochachos, Spur, Sausage Saloon, and Rocomamas, who make delicious dishes full of that smokey braai flavour. So, ditch the heat and enjoy some time with your guests instead. 

Get Your Equipment Needs Sorted

Braai essentials and tools are a little bit different from your regular homeware essentials. Ensure you get the right tools, wood, coal, and fire starters when you visit The Glen Shopping Centre’s Game, and let the staff help you sift through what’s good for your braaing needs. 

Do You Have the Right Furniture for Your Braai Party? We Can Help

At The Glen Shopping Centre, we have furniture and home decor fit for both indoor and outdoor parties and get-togethers. Because you are hosting a braai on sunny days, you might be looking for patio chairs, couches, and some umbrellas for you and your guests. Don’t worry; our home decor stores are the place for you! From Coricraft to Mr Price Home, you can get cushions, ottomans, camping chairs, gazebos, and more. Let The Glen Shopping Centre be your one-stop shop for all your furniture essentials during braai season and beyond. 

Thinking of Camping and Braaing?

Believe us, it’s a thing. If you are planning a trip to the outdoors involving some camping, you may want to look for essential items to help you out, unlike just walking into the house when you need something. Visit Homemark, Verimark, Cape Union Mart, or Game, and get your camping and braai essentials sorted. 

Take Care of Yourself

A true braai master knows that they need to be sharp when hosting. Don’t forget to remain hydrated and energised when hosting, and visit The Glen Shopping Centre for all your health and wellness needs. Whether it’s vitamins or a bottle of sunscreen to help you out in the sun, you can shop all your essentials at The Glen Shopping Centre with ease. 

Add a Little Sweetness to Your Braai

Most people don’t think of dessert when organising a get-together. Take up your event a tiny notch with some Paul’s Homemade Ice Cream from The Glen Shopping Centre, and surprise your guests with unique sweet flavours to cool them off on a hot day. You will be the talk of the town. 

Final Words

Let your inner braai master out and shine with the help of The Glen Shopping Centre and these stores. We can’t wait to hear what you’ll come up with for your next dishes. See you soon!
