Short Market Clubin Rosebank, Johannesburg.That’s until I stumbled across the media hype surrounding a golden tomahawk sold at the newish Nusr-Et Steakhouse in Londonfor a whopping £1,450 (about R30,000).

Nusr-Et is one of a global chain of restaurants owned by Turkish butcher and social media sensation Nusret Gökçe aka Salt Bae, who shot to fame after avideo showing his flamboyant method of seasoning meat went viral in 2017. Lovers of a good steak, South Africans aren’t scared of spending money on meat, so I did a quick price comparison with a couple of Joburg eateries. headtopics.com

Their most expensive options include “top quality” locally-sourced beef: a 750g sirloin on the bone for R1,150 and the same weight of prime rib for R1,250.

Parktown North’s The Local Grill, which is owned by Steakhouse Champion chef Steve Maresch, offers a huge 3.5kg locally-sourcedWagyu tomahawk steakthat will feed six for R4,500.Whereas at the San Antonio Spur in Sandton City, their most expensive cut, a 300g beef fillet, will set you back just under R200.
