Horny Bull, Tauranga

Located on The Strand in Tauranga, we ended up at the Horny Bull restaurant last night after finding that our intended destination, the fish & chip shop, was closed.  We were informed as we arrived that there would be a wait for meals since they were busy; we were fine with this and got a nice location outside and settled in with a beer and a spiced tomato juice respectively (although the spiced tomato juice wasn’t very spicy).

We started with some Buffalo Wings to share, and whilst they did taste nice they could have done with been spicier.

Jane had the Pork Ribs for her main; these were done in a sweet plum sauce and were flavoursome.  I had the T Bone Steak, and did not make a good choice of sauce (Red Wine and Pepper), but the steak was nicely cooked and enjoyable once I scraped the sauce off.  I found the accompanying curly fries tasted too fatty and could have done with being crispier and the salad dressing appeared to have thyme in it, which I feel dragged it down.

The restaurant had a nice outdoor vibe and the staff were friendly.  Whilst we would return, it wouldn’t be our first choice.
