Butcher Shop and Grill

My friend and I went to the Butcher Shop and Grill for an evening meal. This restaurant is located in Nelson Mandella square alongside numerous other restaurants and attached to a giant shoppng mall. It was also great to see the large bronze statue of the man himself.

The restaurant is fairly unusual as they have a full butchers counter as you walk in displaying the fine array of meat and sea food available. The waiter who led us our table gave us great service all night and I was quite surprised just how large the place is. Anyway down to the steak!

I orderd the prime rib medium rare and it was pretty good - a little fatty for my tastes but it was an epic large piece of meat on the bone. The great thing about it was that it did not come at an epic price - 10UKP - stunning. I have paid more in a beefeater in the UK for something that tasted like shoe sole.

Here is said steak:

Overall for value and service that was hard to beat - 9/10

It tried the Butcher Shop and Grill in Mall of the Emirates, and have to agree with Time Out Dubai's review. (I think it was Time Out; it may have been What's On).

Excellent food, superlative steak, good service. The only problem is that eating this stuff in a shopping mall is 'like eating foie gras at a bus stop'.

I like that quote. Reminds me of the time me and some friends back home had some food in a pub in the UK - all of a sudden the lights went down the music was turned up and the resounding comment was "I did not pay to have dinner in a disco".
