Back in the day, Hurricanes was exclusive to Bondi but over the years the mouth-watering rib focused restaurant has expanded to many other locations. One of these locations is in Brighton Le Sands. It is literally on the main street right off the beach and is the perfect location for a lazy lunch watching peoples on the beach or for a beach-side dinner enjoying the lapping of the waves. As with most Hurricanes, booking is a must as even at this location there are plenty of people wanting to get their fill of ribs.
We had a craving for ribs this day but wasn't starving so opted for a starter and a combo to share. Remember always ask for the complimentary house bread too as it is always fresh from the oven and is particularly good to mop up and leftover sauces from other dishes.
Salt and pepper prawns - $19 - we always go for the garlic prawns which are amazing so this time we went for something different. Big mistake. Whilst the prawns were cooked beautifully and rocket salad is one of my favorrites, the dish just lacked seasoning. Much prefer Asian style salt and pepper and will go back to garlic prawns in future.
Complimentary house bread - remember to ask for this as otherwise they won't serve it. Fresh from the oven, crusty on top and soft in the middle. Warm and served with Western star butter.
Steak and ribs combo - $49.60 (+ mushroom sauce $2.50) - it annoys me a bit that sauce costs extra as I'm a firm believer that steaks should always come with sauce. Here the steak is char-grilled to perfection and was a match made in heaven for the mushroom sauce and smokey BBQ ribs. You can choose lamb, beef or pork ribs, but after trying them all I think pork is the best. Don't be afraid to accept the offer of a bib from the waiter/waitress and get stuck in with you hands and fingers- its the only satisfying way to enjoy these babys.
