Harry Azar is the owner of the Park Café on Chalmers Street, and working beside him is his chef Ken Doogan and an expert dietitian. They feed the Rabbitohs the food that helps them to excel.
A Chili Con Carne is an apparent favourite for the team to eat after a game. On good authority the SSH was told that another team favourite is a stir fry – it’s high in protein and high in carbohydrates.
Harry says that green vegetables like spinach are very popular with the players. Spinach is high in potassium which helps keep players’ muscles moving. Fat intake is important and should always be kept to a minimum. This can be done in very simple ways – instead of a fried egg a player will be served a poached egg.
The Park Café offers good food and value for money. The menu is for breakfast and lunch with a nice range of choices so that everyone can be accommodated. It’s a great place to sit as it’s in the park, with lots of space for the kids to run around.
