Cheapest steak in Sydney?
We've all probably had a $10 pub steak at one time or another and even the more reasonably priced $7 steak. Some of us have even probably had those elusive $5 steaks but by far the cheapest steak I've ever heard and tried is the very popular $2 steak promo on Wednesday nights at Palace Bistro in the Beach Palace Hotel (which I've always called the Coogee Palace for some strange reason). Fearing the worst of a really bad experience because it's so cheap, I'm comforted when arriving about 7.30 pm to see a long line of customers queuing to order and spot most of the diners eating their steaks happily.
While waiting to order I notice the cook filling the entire grill with steaks, about 40 I reckon, and found out from the kitchen they go through about 500 steaks a day — that's a lot of protein. So keep in mind they aren't really cooking your steak to order which means it might not be as hot as you'd hope. My medium-rare steak arrived cooked as ordered and was actually quite tender and tasty and had less grizzle than I was expecting for the price. For an extra $2 it came with salad (lettuce) and yummy hot chips although some of the lettuce leaves looked a little wilted and have probably seen better days — maybe due to the heat of the kitchen. The only catch is you have to order a $4 drink which you'd probably get anyway to wash it all down. A glass of red or white wine is between $5 and $7 and the reasonably priced steamed vegetables for $6 were good. Would I be back again, hell yeah!
