A few weeks ago I found out that Beefcakes had a branch situated in Illovo, Johannesburg. I was thrilled to find this out as I had been wanting to visit their CT branch for quite some time but my husband had always said no. 🙁
Although I had booked for us, the guy who handles the bookings had been off sick and our booking hadn’t actually been captured. Luckily there was still a table available and it turned out to be quite close to the stage so we had a great view of the show later on. We were introduced to our waiter Sasha who really was a breath of fresh air! Not only was he attentive, polite and happy, he really showed me what great service is about. (I think we’ve become so accustomed to poor service that what should be the norm now turns out to be exceptional.)
We started off with some milkshakes and mine was absolutely amazing and really lived up to its delicious name – choc chip brownie. We then had a serving of nachos to share. I’m not sure if I was just really hungry but their nanchos are divine, in fact the best I have ever tasted! Next up we had a main course each and I chose the “Magic Mushrooms” which was big black mushrooms, topped with cashew nuts, goats cheese with a basil and garlic pesto, topped with cheddar and mozzarella and finished off with a balsamic reduction. My tastebuds are still going overboard!
Considering we arrived at 7pm and the show was due to start at 8:30pm, it was quite a feat to get our drinks and meals so quickly after ordering (we were finished by about 8:20pm). Especially considering they were fully booked for the evening!
As mentioned the show was due to start at 8:30pm but ended up starting around 9pm. It was hosted by Miss K with variety song performances by Miss Molly and Holly Diamond. In total the show lasted about 40 minutes which isn’t bad considering the ticket cost was R60.00 per person.
I’m really excited to book for their Tuesday’s “Bitchy Bingo”, their Thursday’s “The Dreemz Drag” and their Sunday’s “Boylesque”. If you’re interested in going sometime, take a look at their weekly schedule here.
