We live in a small country and it still astounds me how gems like Paul A. Grant could stay hidden for so long. We've been hearing about it for quite some time and finally got the opportunity to visit.
On entering the compound I'm hit with a mild case of shock as there is an outdoor restaurant on a residential compound. Excitement kicks in, it reminds me of restaurants of the same style up the Caribbean Isles. Beautifully set tables under a tent framed by garden torches add a certain charm that was believed to have been felt only on your annual vacation.
Their team seems to be a solid bunch, with effortless flow from ordering to receiving meals. Friendly and willing to make suggestions to newbies, they get your order quickly. Meats are prepared in front of you and to your liking which is much appreciated by the way. There is almost no wait at all but we enjoyed the establishment so much I think next time we'll be having dinner there.
I know you're here to find out what the food was like so let's get to it.
1/4 pound beef burger
I know what you're thinking, a burger is a burger is a burger and that's where you're wrong. This burger hit high scores on all burger score sheets. Juicy, perfect patty to bun ratio, tasty and a great bun to lay it all on. (Patties are made in house by the way.)
2 whole chicken legs (drumstick & thigh) with vegetables and cream potatoes.
As most of his existing customers know, when it comes to meat, he knows what he’s doing. Falling off the bone tender and packed with flavour accompanied by 3 scoops of potatoes. Texture told me it was made from flakes but seasoned exceptionally well. Drizzled with a sauce that had a mild blue cheese flavour and dusted with paprika, who complains about flakes. Vegetables are crisp and accompanies the rest of the dish well.
2 sirloin steaks cream potatoes and vegetables
Unlike most, I like my steak medium rare but I'm hesitant to order at times as they never get it right. Not at Paul A. Grant, just the right amount of sear engulfs succulent beef of stellar quality. Lightly seasoned, it goes down like butter. All meats are halal if you're wondering
The chef is also a master butcher and it shows in the dishes he chooses to serve, meats prepared with special care and respect. He is also extremely friendly and I say this as a customer not a critic, they had no idea who we were. The Bill Check fully recommends Paul A. Grant for whatever mood strikes.
