Greg Bax – the master behind the grill, owner and conversation-starter at Rare Grill – makes this a neighborhood institution in Kenilworth. His expertise and passion come from his experience as the owner of the original Hussar Grill in Rondebosch. Greg's respect and love for meat shine through in every bite. Main portions are generous but you might be tempted by sticky chicken wings or oven-roasted bone marrow on toast to start.
The reason you’re here is for the hand-selected four-week-old wet-aged beef. Make sure you check out the specials board or give Greg your preferences and let him choose for you. (Otherwise choose between sirloin, rump or fillet.) Our decision to let Greg feed us was certainly well rewarded, as we were treated to a 500g T-bone steak and a grass-fed fillet that was so incredibly soft, it could have been mistaken for butter. The mammoth feast was topped with onion rings and served with triple-cooked chips and a butter cabbage. Each bite delivered well-balanced caramelisation and superior flavour. Greg mans the grill station himself and ensures the cuts are expertly grilled, with fat rendered to perfection.
Steakhouse classic desserts like brownies and malva pudding grace the menu. While it may seem rather pedestrian, a spoonful of a faultless crème brûlée is a rather pleasing end to this delightful experience.
A small selection of perfect partners to the meaty options is on offer. A great pinotage like the Ernst Gouws & Co is always a delicious option with red meat.
Warm and inviting staff and a convivial Greg make sure you’re well taken care of.
