Consider this lineup of dishes from countries that have ruled recent Winter Olympics your ready-made viewing-party menu (with takeout options, because we can’t all be Martha Stewart).

Bavarian Pretzels
Trade Philly-style figure eights in for Germany’s crunchy-outside, chewy-inside take.
For takeout: Warm Bavarian pretzels with Obazda cheese dip from Frankford Hall, 1210 Frankford Avenue, Fishtown.

Wings
Few foods scream “Watching sports!” in the U.S. better than a plate of crispy wings.
For takeout: Love & Honey Wings, Love & Honey Fried Chicken, 1100 North Front Street, Northern Liberties.

Left: Poutine from Shoo Fry. Right: Smoked Salmon Crostini from Di Bruno Bros.

Poutine
Popular in Quebec, this dish delightfully works three universal comfort foods — french fries, cheese curds and gravy — into each bite.
For takeout: Scrapple poutine from Shoo Fry, multiple locations.

Smoked Salmon Crostini
Do as the Norwegians do and nosh on smoked salmon well past brunch hours.
For takeout: Norwegian salmon and baguette from Di Bruno Bros., multiple locations.
