The Press – Bar and Grill, Sea Point

GUEST REVIEWER: Alicia  (edited)

Where | Nestled on Sea Point’s main road is this trendy new little home to burgers and craft beers. Be careful, it is fairly easy to miss! It can get a bit drafty, but the menu offers up something for everybody and draws from cuisines across the world. And with a two for one burger special every Monday, how could it go wrong?

What | The menu offers regular chicken or beef burgers, as well as gourmet burgers – patty options including vegetarian, lamb, fish and pork. The Big Ben, the Italian Job, the All American and the Snob (French) are some of the burgers available – all accompanied with slaw or fries.  I chose the Snob with a chicken breast. The burger usually comes with brie, cranberry sauce, walnuts and bacon, although I asked for mine to come without the bacon. Our burgers arrived and while they weren’t huge, they were far from disappointing. The creaminess of the brie mixed with the sweetness of the cranberry sauce was wonderful. It was only improved by the surprising (and forgotten) crunch of walnuts.  Overall, it was a great burger with great ingredients.

The Snob costs R90

Conclusion | If your wallet and stomach are both feeling hunger pangs, The Press’s Monday special is not an opportunity to miss. They have other great deals throughout the week and, although the food is not mind-blowing, it is definitely worth a visit.
