Raise the Steaks at HQ Restaurant

Sink your teeth into the meatiest event in Cape Town

As a part of their ongoing ‘Raise the Steaks’ series, HQ are setting their sights on the Scotch Fillet for inspiration on Wednesday, 25 October 2017.

We’re already moving into the eighth installment of the Raise the Steaks series, and this time they’ve decided to treat guests to one of the most delicious cuts of beef available; the Scotch Fillet. And as they never like to leave anyone out, vegetarians have a special alternative prepared for them on the night.

Headquarters is a culinary gem tucked away in a courtyard off Shortmarket Street. This time around, the Raise the Steaks dinner is being paired with sensational wines from Iona Wines. This historic estate stands as a beacon of quality in the Elgin Valley, and their winemakers work tirelessly to ensure that their wine range is top notch. The chefs at HQ have been collaborating with the winemakers at Iona to make sure that the wine and food delight everyone’s palate.

The Scotch Fillet is a cut of beef that comes for the rib section of the cow, and is classified as the Rib-Eye with the bone removed. A little less creatively it is also known as a Boneless Rib-Eye. 

The menu for the evening features classic combinations served with exciting new concepts and interesting takes made with fresh ingredients. Take a look at the menu below to get your mouth watering.
