Hurricane’s Grill is a steakhouse at Hillarys Boat Harbour. There are choices to sit indoors, or outside on the deck, with views of the lovely Hillary’s Marina.
On the menu we found their specialties of steak and ribs, as well as salads, seafood and burgers. Previously, it had been the very popular Hippo Creek steakhouse, and it still offers a similar menu – even down to the “meat on a skewer” dish and African Boerewors. I enjoyed the pork belly. The meat was tasty, saucy and the twice cooked belly was finished with a peri-peri jus. The skin was nicely crisp too.
My husband was happy to hear that Hippo Creek’s signature dish “The Hunters Assagi” had been kept on by Hurricanes. For those who hadn’t experienced the Assagai – it is an African meat dish, which the chicken or beef is cut into large chunks and served on a vertical metal skewer. At the top of the skewer is chilli or garlic butter. This melts down the grilled meat and drips onto the bowl of chips below. It sounds delicious, unless you’re watching your cholesterol! The Hurricane’s version the “espetada” is very similar, and a little pricy at $42 for the beef.
Our Grandson chose the ribs from the children’s menu. We weren’t sure how he’d go, having not eaten them before, but afterwards, our sauce- covered boy declared them to be his new favourite food! The serve was mega for a child’s portion.
Hurricane’s Grill is in a fantastic location and carnivores are sure to devour their meaty menu. The service was mostly good and they cater well for large groups and families.
