OP’s Tavern

GG had been given a Freedom voucher for Christmas and was taking his sweet time using it so we finally found a Saturday when there was spare time to peruse their wares and we did need a new cupboard so at least we had a target in mind. We’d been at the gym in the morning so before we braved Freedom on a Saturday we were in need of sustinance so after a quick flick through the Entertainment Book we decided we would give OP’s Tavern a go. Now GG had actually been before and had found their food to be fairly decent – fitting the bill nicely for his office’s Friday lunchtime outting with the boys.

So I decided that I would give the Open steak sandwich On toasted garlic bread with onion, tomato, lettuce, egg, tomato chutney & chips ($17.50) a go. I have to say that while I had read open sandwich on the menu I think I had figured that the extra slice of bread would maybe we on the side. So I think I was a little daunted when it wasn’t. I had ordered my meal without the egg so perhaps it would have presented better with a fried egg on top. Looked a bit lacking without it. Just like a giant piece of steak next to a mountain of chips and a few sprouts.

Looked slightly more impressive when you shifted the steak to the side and the lettuce and tomato were on display. Taste wise, the steak was well cooked and despite appearances was a decent piece of meat. The salad was fine, but the tomato chutney tasted more like a tomato salsa, like something you’d have with tacos so it wasn’t really my favourite as it didn’t really go. In all, probably not my favourite steak sandwhich but hey something different I suppose and they were generous with their side serve of chips.

Now GG was suitably more impressed with his selection of Sirloin Steak Served with chips or baked potato & choice of sauce(mushroom, peppercorn or bearnaise) ($25.50). It was a huge bit of meat that arrived, cooked to medium rate perfection with a generous pour of peppercorn sauce. And similarly to mine, he wasn’t left wanting for chips – plenty with every serve.

Look I wasn’t all that wowed with OP’s but for a quick and easy Saturday stop along Scarborough Beach Road it did the job. Service had been friendly and we both left with very full bellies. Gotta be happy enough with that I suppose.
