Given Squires Loft’s association with Rare Steakhouse, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that they are quite distinct. A more refined setting, admittedly I wasn’t comparing like with like - I can’t quite recall the cut I had at Squires in South Yarra. But the eye fillet I had at Rare was pretty good.
Almost everyone went for a steak, which comes with baked potato, mash or chips.
Crusty with creamy butter.
Rump - Pasture Fed Prime Steer ($34.5/400g)
With the baked potato.
Scotch Fillet - Grain Fed Dry Aged Yearling ($34.5/300g)
Marbled, with mash.
Eye Fillet - Grain Fed Prime Steer with Chips ($34/200g)
Pork Spare Ribs - Served with Mash ($37.5) & Mushroom Sauce ($4.5)
It’s no Hurricanes, but it falls off the bone nicely.
Eye Fillet - Grain Fed Prime Steer with Salad ($34/200g) with Mushroom Sauce ($4.5)
I opted for a salad over the spuds. Medium rare, true to its word it was incredibly tender and juicy with a lovely smokiness. Mushroom sauce in commercial creamy fashion and a fresh garden salad.
I’d probably be more likely to satisfy my meat craving at Casa Ciuccio or San Telmo but I’ll admit the eye fillet was a pretty good cut cooked well. Judging from the patrons it’s pretty popular with the business crowd.
