Lord Nelson Brewery
Lord Nelson is a brew house down in The Rocks/Millers Point area of Sydney. It has a fairly old tavern vibe with a hefty number of brews on tap, including a number of house brewed beer.
They had one steak on their menu, a Sirloin which was chargrilled and served with cafe de paris butter and pomme frites ($30).
I placed my order, cooked rare, and waited until finally it arrived. It came out looking slightly unappealing and plain, and had me worried. The char grill was definitely noticeable, I would even be tempted to say overly so.
I’m going to be blunt here, it was not a very good piece of meat, and to make matters worse it was cooked just as badly. On the plus side it was somewhat tender and had a heavy char, probably due to the over cooking.
This experience in a sentence was basically greyish, unflavoured meat, fortunately the place is a pretty good drinking venue.
How well it’s cooked – 4.6
Flavour – 3.8
Tenderness – 5.4
Overall – 4.6
