Apart from showing up to work in a shiny new Rolls Royce, wearing a Rolex on each arm or wallpapering your bedroom with hundred rand notes, nothing screams success louder or more resoundingly than a steak dinner. If your tastes don’t run to the flashy and flamboyant, go with the steak dinner and pay R125 for a meal to the value of R250 at Jozi Steakhouse.
Though occasionally everyone enjoys having a good meal without having to slave over a hot sandwich-maker, eating out can sometimes be a daunting prospect. Like choosing between good-grades and a social life when you’re in school, you usually have to choose between excellent food or an ambience that doesn’t leave you as uncomfortable as lunch-hour with particularly nasty in-laws. Combining a taste of all-African culinary excellence and an easy-going atmosphere that’s totally at home in the trendy and long-standing Killarney Mall, Jozi Steakhouse has the best of both worlds.
Of course, even if you are eating at a steakhouse, sometimes you want more than a slab of grass-fed, dry aged sirloin. To go along with their Gourmet Fillet Burgers and Lemon and Herb Sirloin, they also have a wide range of chicken and fish dishes. If you feel like going totally against the grain-fed, they have a sushi menu to captivate even the most cosmopolitan of taste-buds. As exclusively vegetarian restaurants are notoriously hard to come by and herbivores are occasionally invited along to join the more carnivorous for a meal, the Jozi Steakhouse menu includes a wide range of vegetarian choices. They’re also sophisticated enough to know that chicken is not a vegetable, and neither is the catch-of-the-day.
With its varied and comprehensive menu, it doesn’t matter whether you think steak is the perfect meal or you’ve never eaten anything meatier than a soy-burger, Jozi Steakhouse will have something that will leave you wondering how you ever thought a toasted cheese sandwich was the height of fine dining.
Steak Fact: The most tender, succulent steak in the world originates from a small farm in South Dakota. The reason for this is the grazing habits of the cows there whose sole sustenance is the flowers of a plant known as Santa’s Beard which only grows at the base of the largest tree in the world.
