So I’d never been to Hurricanes before last Friday night (shocking I know). We decided to hit up the popular grill for something that would fill us up after a long working week!
We got there at about 6.00pm and were quickly seated. I would recommend getting there early as from about 7.00pm onwards there was a line to get in as the restaurant was packed out.
The atmosphere was great with a lot of people around and nice patio heaters to keep us warm.
Our waiter was friendly and very attentive and we soon received our drinks and some water for the table.
Being a first timer, I wasn’t sure what to order but the ribs came highly recommended so I decided to go for the Chicken and Ribs- half a rack of pork ribs with half a chicken (in portugese style marinade). My companion ordered the Lamb Ribs and Steak- which consisted of half a rack of ribs and a steak with chips.
Pork half rack of ribs with half a chicken and chips, $44.90
Both meals came out within about 15minutes and we were soon bibbed and ready to dig in with our hands!.
My pork ribs were delicious and sticky and I loved the Hurricanes sauce. The chips were also crunchy and golden, but I had to add some salt to them.
The lamb ribs, which I also tried, tasted good but were a little fatty near the bone. They were also a lot smaller, while the pork ribs were very large and didn’t taste too fatty.
Lamb ribs and steak with chips, $44.90
Overall I didn’t manage to eat all the chicken but I tried a bit and really enjoyed the flavours. Although a little spicy, the chicken was well-cooked and tasty.
It cost us exactly $50.00 each (two people) including a cider and a lemon lime bitters each.
Overall I would rate my dining experience (out of 10):
- Service- 8.5
- Food- 8
- Ambience- 7
- Value – 7
We had a great time, service was excellent, food was delicious and perfectly cooked and the atmosphere was great.
