It was a Thursday night and as I worked out at the gym I got it in my head that I fancied a steak for dinner….. and that I fancied not having to cook it for myself J Now ideally I would have liked to have headed along to a steak night somewhere or other, but it proved difficult to find a list of where cheap nights around town were…… which is one of the main reasons I decided to try and start one, with the help of the Perth food faithful of course.
Anyways though I googled pubs in the vicinity of my suburb and the closest was the Seven Mile Inn, along Wannneroo Road in Balcatta. I hadn’t been before and as fate would have it their steak night was on a Wednesday, not a Thursday, but they were close and had steak on the menu – so it ticked the necessary boxes.
It wasn’t particularly busy when we arrived, a decent crowd though for a week night and we were quickly seated. We both ordered the steak, which came with your choice of beer battered chips (my choice) or mashed potato (GG’s choice). There was also a side salad included. There was also a selection of sauces on offer and we both went with pepper.
It didn’t take too long for the food to arrive and we were both pretty impressed with the size of the meal – seemed unlikely either of us would go hungry! So how was it? Decent quality steak, cooked to our liking, but I was a little disappointed in the gravy, just didn’t have a lot of depth to the taste, not really that peppery at all. But there was an abundance of it… which I suppose was a good thing for dipping chips into it. I saved my salad til the end, looking forward to something refreshing…… hugely forlorn to find out it had sort of an italiany/mayo dressing on it. I think I just wish that it would be specified if salads were automatically going to include dressing…… so I didn’t end up eating it.
Would I go back for some steak action at Seven Mile Inn again? I think I would, probably on steak night though…. knowing now to ask for less gravy and no salad dressing.
