We visited HQ (Head Quarters in Shortmarket Street, CBD) last night for their 2-4-1 DATE NIGHT SPESH! And it really was incredible.

So what exactly is the deal? What do you get and what do you pay?

At sit-down, you each receive a Boschendal Red Blend (full bodied, lovely notes of berries, chocolate), to kick-start the festivities your palette is going to experience.

Each couple starts off with a salad – but not just any salad – a truly devine, make-everyone-happy salad, made out of these humble ingredients: cos and iceberg lettuce, Parmesan shavings, toasted pine nuts, tossed in vinaigrette. 5 stars.

Then for the REAL MAKOYA: a 300g steak with a side of skinny fries. Dreams do come true. (The skinny fries are to die for – as good as McDonald’s but just probs a bit healthier – #WINNING).

But do you want to know the real reason we are RAVING about HQ’s 2-4-1 Tuesday Date night special? The ENTIRE bill is only R295!

R295!!!! You can’t even really get one item in MrPrice for that amount and here you get two glasses of great wine, two salads, two steaks and fries.


And as per their Insta: “We cater for singles too, so gather the girl gang, or make it a man date. We totally don’t mind!”

We would 100% go again. Really worth it. And the ambience is great too. So now you know where the TrendE team will be each Tuesday night.

Call them on 021-424 6373 for reservations.
