On Saturday night, my husband and I decided to go out for dinner. It was the first time in a while, so we were super excited and the fact he had booked a table at the Spur Restaurant was great news to me as I've been wanting to go since it opened.
We booked our table at 5.00pm and got there early, so we had to wait outside for it to open. The doors opened on time and we were greeted with a hello and smile and asked if we had booked a table. The place seemed on first glance nice and light and African teamed as you would expect being a South African teamed restaurant.
Our waiter took us to our table, which was a little disappointing as we ended up sitting at the back of the restaurant which clearly wasn't finished. The seating was from the old Drovers restaurant and all that seems to have been done is added lighting and canvas printing on the walls.
We were handed our menus and told that our waiter would be back to take our order. The menu looked amazing - until I opened it and it was covered in someone else's dinner! Needless to say I found myself a new menu.
So many amazing sounding dishes to choose from. In the end we decided to start with a starter each and went for the Texan Blaze Wings and were asked what sauce we wanted even though on the menu it says to comes in a south western dressing. We ended up with the BBQ Chicken Wings for $13.95; they were pretty good but came out as drum sticks. We also ordered the Hot Crispy Garlic Bread.
We then went for the garlic prawns for $13.95 - it was 6 prawns with a small bowl of garlic sauce and was not worth it at all.
When the food started to come out we were then asked to order our main, I had the steak and rips combo at $39.95. It was a grilled prime cut rump (250g worth) with half a potion rack of ribs; you cold choose between pork or beef, so I went for pork.
My husband went for the Original Double Spur Burger; a Grilled Pure Ground Beef Burger which as great value at $19.95. Both meals came with chips or a baked potato and Spur style crispy onion rings.
It took about 40 minutes for our meals to come out but when it did - the food looked amazing. First bites; amazing steak, onion rings and the best chips ever until I bit into my ribs - even thought they were coved in a BBQ sauce, they were plain and did not have any taste at all.
