Wined and dined at the fabulous HQ.
Warm hospitality, a knowledgeable stall compliment and great steak!
In fact, that’s the only item on the menu that HQ actually serves as far as main courses go!
The dish is accompanied by a simply delicious salad made up of two types of lettuce leaf, roasted pine nuts, shaved parmesan and a complimentary dressing. It’s light, well balanced and currently my favourite salad in Cape Town!
The 28 day matured free range Namibian steak is served with fries and a Cafe de Paris sauce. Though tasty, this butter based sauce is a little heavy, but goes down really well with the Haute Cabrier Pino Noir, or Ansela van de Caab from their special cellar collection – available upon request.
Go hungry and expect to eat about 10 minutes after your order is placed!
For dessert I tried the trio of sorbet, which comprised of mango, strawberry and apple. A flavour sensation. I also indulged in the smooth and creamy vanilla pod Crème Brule. You have to try it! Best Crème Brule I’ve had in a while.
The vibe on a Monday or Tuesday is great for those who wish to enjoy a chilled dining experience, however from Wednesday through to Saturday it picks up considerably.
HQ also offers a seriously wide range of exotic cocktails. You’ll find anything from Wild fig and pineapple capirinhas to the Vanilla, pear and cardamom mojitos.
HQ’s a great place to line the stomach with a quick and delicious meal before a fun night out!
HQ is set to entertain the crowds with live music Wednesday through Saturday during the season in the bar & lounge area.
