On a Friday night when the weather is quite cold, the city seems less and less apetising, especially for those who live on the outskirts of sydney. However, this does not mean that a Friday night cannot be enjoyed with good food and company. The night starts with a hearty meal at the Mustang Spurs Resturant in Macarthur Square.
Spurs is famous for its flame-grilled burgers and steaks, fresh salads and desserts and has a name that is globally recognised. They are family oriented and have aimed to be from the beginning, which allows for the whole 'tribe' to come and enjoy themselves. A small room is situated at the back of the resturant with gaming consoles, books and puzzles to provide an escape for parents to eat their meals while their children play.
Our table of ten ordered a total of four different things for dinner: The Ceasar salad, 300 ounce Steak, the fajitas for two and the infamous Guac Burger. The service was fast and the meals were hot, fresh and they looked as good as they tasted. The inside embraces the American Indian culture, and is a fun arrangement. Because it was cold the inside tables were already booked so we had to sit outdoors; luckily outdoor heaters were provided.
The ceasar salad looked delicious and was a well sized portion. containing grilled strips of chicken that were juicy and suculent, with a very fresh taste that was provided by the crisp Cos Lettuce. The pieces of bacon blended well with the creamy Ceasar dressing and a Ceasar Salad cannot be complete without finding the delightful crutons hidden within. Topped with parmesan and a price of $14.95
Although not being our first time at the resturant we always tend to order the familiar. I shared the fajitas for two with my sister. Every time we ordered it, it never disappoints. We finish the meal comfortably with our tastebuds satisfied. We ordered the mixed strips of hot grilled chicken and beef. The meat is tossed with slices of caramilsed onion and red and green capsicum providing it with a rich flavour and colour. It comes with lettuce, cheese, sour cream and guacomole. A salsa is also provided at the choice of hot (spicy) or not.
For those who enjoy hot chilli the spicy selection would be considered mild for their accustomed pallettes. Provided with soft tortilla wraps, you are able to fill it with whatever combination you like along with how much you fill it (I always tend to put too much in one tortilla which proves a challenge to eat). For those who prefer a vegeterian alternative the menu has vegetarian fajitas which come with capsicum, onions, carrot, mushroom and celery stir-fried along with all the trimmings -- at a reasonable cost of $25.95.
For those who love their meat the 300 ounce steak looked delicious and very appealing, cooked to the way you like it. You can also pick between spurs style onion rings, chips or baked potato, and a sauce from Spur's secret sauce range. These include; cheesy, Grill, Pepper, Durky, Jalapeno, Salsa, Gravy, Mushroom or Diane.
Now for the imfamous Guac Burger. Served with cheese, bacon and guacamole, the burger looks extremely tasty and mouth watering, served with either chips or salad. The bacon is cooked perfectly as it is very crispy, contrasting with the smooth texture of the Guacamole. The burgers range from $13.95-$16.95.
We got the dessert menu after our meals but were a little disappointed because the picture of the chocolate brownie that is on their menu isn't made anymore, however the waiter offered to show us the selection of cakes they had inside the restaurant. I ended up getting a mars bar cheesecake slice with vanilla ice-cream. In hindsight this seemed like a very bad decision as it was extremely cold already, but I must admit it was a very nice way to end the meal. The chocolate and caramel made my favourite mix of flavours for the night.
Never a chore always a pleasure, Bye for now and not forever.
