About a month ago I attended the relaunch of The Bull Run hosted by Johannesburg in Your Pocket. The Bull Run, situated in the heart of Sandton across from the Johannesburg Stock Exchange, is an ode to Wall Street and the steakhouses of downtown New York (thus the clever name). The Bull Run has recently undergone a R20 million renovation and extension giving rise to the new Dollar Bar, the unveiling of the great bull sculpture and a gorgeous redesigned interior.

We were treated to some tasty cocktails at The Bull Run compliments of the Dollar Bar. My favourite was definitely the strawberry and pineapple mojito, perfectly refreshing and sweet with a subtle kick. For starters, we were served beef trinchado, chicken strips, ribs and calamari. Simple starters yet delicious and impressive. I absolutely loved the trinchado. It was so flavourful; I can’t remember when last I had such a great tasting one. And the chicken strips, too, were another favourite of mine. For mains, I opted for the chef recommended rump steak with a side of hand cut potato chips. My rump was perfectly cooked and the potato chips were lovely and crisp.

The service at The Bull Run was really great and we were well taken care of. The restaurant’s interior has certainly been beautifully upgraded and it now has a contemporary sophisticated feel to it. I particularly love the look of the new Dollar Bar. The Bull Run is conveniently situated in the Sandton CBD so it’s the perfect place for a quick work lunch or a formal business dinner. I look forward to visiting The Bull Run again soon – for those cocktails alone ;-)
