The Butcher Block cuts straight to the point, great choices straight from the butcher and a variety of dishes any carnivore would love.

Butcher Block - Black Mushroom Bake

Butcher Block – Black Mushroom Bake

Walking into a Butchers Block you won’t think this is a franchise, you’d rather think this is a modern upmarket steakhouse by the décor and the appearance of the wait staff. In a sense, you’d definitely be right, prime cuts of meat and quality ingredients all round.

Starting with the drinks menu you’re pleasantly surprised by the imaginative cocktails and fresh unique flavours from the cocktail menu to the craft beer section. Starters also won’t disappoint with some classics paired with a couple of great interesting fresh ideas.

Butcher Block - Deep Fried Oreos

Butcher Block – Deep Fried Oreos (Yes! Deep fried Oreos!)

Desserts will offer a lot of the same, some exciting unique desserts like deep-fried Oreos and Amarula Crème Brulee alongside classics like Malva pudding and chocolate brownies.

The mains have you spoilt for choice, there’s a lot of choice cuts and great ingredients and every meat-loving South African will find something to their liking. Unfortunately, the burgers don’t compete with the rest of the menu, here you find you miss some of the imaginative qualities named earlier.

Butcher Block - Rump & Calamari Combo

But looking at the combos and the choice cuts, you’ll find where the name of the restaurant comes from, these are all perfect cuts paired with exquisite flavour profiles and great combinations as per the butcher’s choice

If you’re looking for a steakhouse that will deliver not only on a great steak but also give you the option of veering away from the ordinary, look no further than Butchers Block. They will have you drooling over a menu trying to decide whether you’d go for a classic fillet or exploring something a bit more unusual like Venison steak or a Rump covered in Bacon, Blue Cheese and Jalapeno. This will definitely soon become a Sunday afternoon favourite.
