MAKE A DATE FOR GREAT STEAK
The Wolftrap Steakhouse Championships 2017 saw over 150 steakhouses competing to be crowned South Africa’s Steakhouse Champion. The top 10 finalists, as voted by the public, were visited unannounced by expert judges led by Pete Goffe-Wood, well-known MasterChef personality, and assessed according to a strict score sheet that focussed on the quality of steak served, as well as side dishes and hospitality. Ultimately it was debut entrant Rare Grill in Kenilworth, Cape Town, that claimed top honours (as well as being named Newcomer of the Year). The runner up, Little Havana in Umhlanga Rocks, KwaZulu-Natal, had been the winner in 2015. In third place was The Local Grill in Parktown North, Johannesburg, which has an incredible three titles to its name. The Steakhouse Legend of the Year was awarded to The Godfather in Centurion, a stalwart in the industry, and Steakhouse Chain of the Year went to the Cattle Baron Group.
