Food is a powerful tool. It makes women superb wife material, makes men largely unattractive around the midriff, it gives children brain power and can make or break reputations. Food is also the source for proverbs like the way to man’s heart is through his stomach. Well, the way to a women’s heart is through the doors of a restaurant so she doesn’t have to cook. It’s best to compromise in a relationship, so meet in the middle and enjoy a Prego roll and chips at Culture Club for R34.50.
Culture Club is conveniently located within the Hillcrest Corner mall. The restaurant is comfortable and the Culture Club chefs have perfected the art of the Prego roll. Their experience with this particular dish is quite extensive, and it can be tasted in the steak. Take yourself, your other half, and friends down to Culture Club. Take in the atmosphere, enjoy the Prego and chips and you would’ve educated yourself on that little bit of Portuguese cuisine.
Portuguese steak rolls have a reputation for being somewhat amazing so it’s with immense pride that you dip dummies and teething rings in prego marinade to celebrate your eight-month-old kiddie saying, ‘boof daba thrrrrrrr prego’.The power of the prego is ten-fold.
There’s nothing like a delicious Prego roll and chips. The preparation of the meat is the key to producing cooked steak with immense flavor, and marinade that’s out of this world. The marinade is prepared with many ingredients that are commonly used in the Mediterranean community to produce dishes of delightful decadence. The chef marinates the meat in olive oil, sautéed onions, red peppers, garlic, Paprika and white wine while singing traditional Portuguese lullabies to it making it a softly textured and happy steak. The happy steak is then left to rest for several hours before it’s cooked to perfection and then introduced to its partner for life- the roll.
Portuguese rolls are scrumptious. The warm soft bread is encased in a crunchy shell of goodness that’s dusted with flour and filled with buttery goodness. The steak and roll merge, and the roll soaks up the marinade, creating a tasty sponge of ambrosial delight.
Did you know? Men were told steak would put hair on their chests but it became ridiculous when meat and potatoes were the only things on offer. Thankfully, when the razor was introduced the Caveman disappeared into the history books.
