You might not usually associate South African traditional braai and basting recipes with Halal meat but that is exactly what is on offer at Steakout in Tooting.

Steakout first opened in Norbury in 2008 and its popularity was such that it was quickly followed by the opening of a second Steakout in Tooting in 2009.

“We want to offer something exciting and new,” says restaurant manager Imran Ali, “which is why we decided to combine South African braai recipes and Halal meat.

“The result has been fantastic,” he says, “We have some customers who come from the north of England to eat here.

“Our ethos is quite simple to deliver a high quality, unique and friendly dining experience to customers. All our food is 100 per cent fresh, hand prepared with only the best Halal ingredients selected for use,” he added.
