BLACK HIDE STEAKHOUSE
36 Caxton Street, Petrie Terrace; (07) 3369 9500 blackhidesteakhouse.com.au Open Tuesday-Friday for lunch and Tuesday-Saturday for dinner It ain’t cheap but that adage “you get what you pay for” certainly applies here. And when you’re tucking into the best steak you’ve had in a long time – possibly ever – you’ll believe it’s worth every cent. Black Hide sources a dozen hand-picked cuts from Queensland beef producer Stanbroke, prepares them with exacting attention and delivers flawless service. If it’s Angus you’re after, the rib on the bone is a hefty half-kilo feast of beautifully (3+) marbled meat, perfectly charred on the outside, rare and rosy inside. A slightly daintier Wagyu rump cap is also full-flavoured and incredibly tender, thanks to its generous marbling (5+). That serious-looking steak knife is superfluous in both cases, as the meat is butter-soft. All come with Wagyufat-roasted potatoes, roasted garlic and a choice of Béarnaise, peppercorn, red wine or wild-mushroom sauce.
