Iron Steak and Bar is one of the new kids on the Bree Street block. Having taken over the space where Charango used to be, it’s right in the heart of the trendy CBD food scene.
At the end of October I attended their launch where I got a taste of their signature grass fed, flat iron steak which, get this, you can order for only R100! (AND you get a free ice cream!)
I know right, sounds too good to be true… but it’s not…
Part of Iron Steak and Bar’s claim to fame is their extra special Vulcano Gres oven which is all the way from Spain & a first here in Cape Town. I’m told it ensures the most perfectly cooked steak packed with flavour. Of course, the ingredients are even more important than the cooking process. Iron Steak and Bar pride themselves at only serving grass-fed boutique beef that has been rear pastured, is free range, organic & locally sourced.
As I mentioned above, I got to try their signature flat iron steak – 200g steak served with their house leaf salad for only R100:
Sides are sold separately, but they’ve got a really nice selection with prices ranging from R29 – R45. Side options include: tempura onion rings, creamy mash & gravy, creamed spinach, smashed oven-roasted potatoes & wagyu beef dripping chips.
But if flat iron steak isn’t your vibe and you’re wanting to go a different route, they also have a daily specials board where you can try everything from Wagyu & Picanha to grilled seabass and whole baby chicken (depending on availabilty on the day):
On the menu you will find a couple of dessert options, BUT when you pay your bill your waiter will hand you a special token which you can redeem for a salted caramel ice cream cone dipped in Valrhona shavings.
This was a really fun launch & I wish these guys all the best. Want to check it out for yourself? Then contact them on 021 422 1175 or firstname.lastname@example.org to make a booking.
They are open: Monday to Sunday from 11am to 11pm. And you’ll find them at: 114 Bree Street, Cape Town.
