I’m a steak snob. There, I said it! Growing up in South Africa, where red meat is king and babies practically cut their teeth on biltong; a good piece of steak is pretty easy to find and not terribly expensive. Not so in the UK. You can’t buy a decent steak in a supermarket (or I haven’t been able to find one yet) and if you want to eat one in a restaurant, it’s going to cost you.
We arrived after the lunch-hour rush and there were still quite a few tables occupied in the tiny restaurant, but we were seated straight away. As the restaurant only serves steak and a handful of sauces and side dishes, there wasn’t much deliberating over what to order. Steak and salad as it comes for me (£10.00) and steak, chips (£2.50) and peppercorn sauce (£1.00) for TBH. While we waited we were given a tin cup of popcorn with beef dripping to snack on. I really liked that they served something completely different and it was a good thing that it came in the size it did, because I love the stuff and can just keep on eating and eating it.
