In Search of the Best Steak Sandwich

When we first came to live on the Gold Coast we decided with our friends Peter & Fennis (who live in Brisbane) that we would have lunch at every one of the 17 surf clubs on the Gold Coast with dining facilities. Well, it didn't happen and we probably have only done three of them together, but since deciding to produce a blog, I thought that I would resurrect the plan of having a regular lunch at different clubs.

Since reviving this plan, I have told others that I intend to provide a comparative report on lunch at these places and in order to do so I felt that we needed to have a standard comparison point - something that all of the venues are likely to have. I chose a steak sandwich. This prompted suggestions to try the steak sanger at places scattered all over Australia, so I have now broadened my aim and am simply looking for the best steak sandwich in Australia.

Obviously, I can't  do justice to a national quest, so I invite any interested person to post a review of any worthwhile steak sandwich that they would like to publicise. As we grow with new outlets being established in different places,  this category will have a greater national relevance. 

No doubt that over time, menus and staff change, so we will include the date of our experience in each blog posting.
