Though they say that sampling international cuisine is a great way to experience other cultures and stamp your mouth’s passport – even metaphorical travelling can be an unsettling experience. Rather than risk a run in with strange delicacies like casu marzu, stick to tried and trusted sustenance and pay R34 for a 200g rump steak and chips at Unity Brasserie and Bar.
Everyone knows that it’s an older sibling’s job to pass along their knowledge, good traits and sneaky inside info to the younger generation. Though it’s not quite the same as teaching a little brother how to throw a punch, the trendy Café 1999 did manage to pass down all of its innovation and ambience to Unity Brasserie and Bar – it’s hip and casual younger sibling. Sitting pretty in the Silvervause Centre, Unity manages to combine all the good taste of Café 1999, with a bit of off-the-cuff atmosphere sprinkled around for good measure.
While you kick back and soak up the trendy vibe, treat your
taste buds to a beefy treat that’s got more flavour than the variety-packs of
kiddie’s cereals. With 200g of a perfectly seasoned and prepared cut of prime
rump, even the most boisterous of bellies will be purring contentedly before
the last bite has been consumed. Of course, to ensure you’re not just barraging
your belly with beef, your 200g rump steak arrives accompanied by a battalion
of fries; more than enough to allay any stray hunger-pangs.
