The caption was accompanied by a picture of the traditional South African dish compromising pap (stiff porridge), boerewors, or what some would call beef sausages, and a tomato, red onion and cucumber relish.
And if that wasn't enough, a brown onion gravy was poured over the wors to put the finishing touches on the typically afternoon or evening meal. The tweet not only had tongues wagging but salivating, judging by the over 2 700 the post attracted.
Netizens keen to get a taste
In usual viral news fashion, below Briefly News brings readers all the colourful reactions to the tweet.
"So ppl eat pap that big?"
"I actually made this for lunch cos this tweet was stuck in my head. Post something else tomorrow to inspire me ke darly."
"Smash. I hope the pap was cooked the previous day."
Locals share favourite dishes for Heritage Day
Earlier, Briefly News reported that South Africans took to social media to share some of their favourite traditional dishes on Heritage Day 2021.
With everything from samp and mogodu (tripe) to boiled maize (iinkobe) and Mopani worms to look forward to as part of the commemoration, these simplistic meals could not have been beaten by anything else.
To mark the traditional occasion, many, as it was a public holiday, also prepared some umqombothi for their elders, with Briefly News looking at various locals' inclinations.
A Twitter user, @Erika Rauh wrote:
“My daughter has eaten mopani worms and she says it tastes very nice. Still want to try it.”
Another user, @Livingstone Sadalah said:
“I prefer steam bread and chicken (idombolo)."
With, @Scara Ntshangase adding:
“That’s the most disgusting food ever... I'd rather go back to my ex than eat this.”
