I typically abhor pub food as find it unsophisticated and unclean but that’s not to say I’ve had some solid pub eating over the years. Naturally as a drinking spot, you inevitably need some food carbs to go down from time-to-time.
In the midst of a recent work drinks evening, I opted to try the halloumi sliders snack dish at the Golden Gate Hotel. It’s just a skip away from the office and notorious for it’s questionable ten dollar steaks, which are available any time, any day. That’s pretty much lives up to what you expect from a $10 steak meal, although the fries can be stingy sized.
The unnecessarily vegetarian sliders definitely did the trick at the time, and naturally had a few raised lips and brows when they entered the room. I enjoyed the glossiness of the buns it was on and under and you got a decent balanced bite with the rocket and tzatziki. It seemed only slightly lacking mainly it was just a bit too gentle taste wise. A punchy note of something may have helped the meal stand out and memorable.
Pro tip: $10 steak for value purposes?
