Yaqub’s Steakhouse Opening Date Confirmed and we have the exclusive!

Salaams and welcome back to the Halal Blogosphere!

Yesterday morning I had a special sneak preview of Yaqub’s Steakhouse with a behind the scenes tour of the latest edition to the Halal Food scene in Sparkbrook. Yaqub’s is located on the corner of Stoney Lane and Highgate Road literally opposite the Lahore Karahi Halal Chinese Restaurant.

Yaqub’s has a fresh contemporary feel to the decor with a strong visual brand that is visible both on the exterior and the interior of the restaurant. The downstairs dining area seats approximately 70 covers with room to seat a further 100 covers upstairs. The restaurant has a vast window frontage with the bottom half of the windows benefiting from having a frosted cover to allow diners to have a more intimate dining experience without their steaks getting the evil eye from passers by! The attention to detail expands to the toilets which have also been fitted out to a good quality standard. Too often some of our halal restaurants can really be let down by the toilet area. We’re constantly getting emails from some of our readers sharing some of the worst experiences but I digress!

Food I hear you cry! I had a chance to sit down with one of the owners of the restaurant and he was really excited about the menu the chef and his kitchen team have come up with. There was a clear emphasis on creating a unique steakhouse experience and yes folks that includes the option to ask how you want your steak cooked. I’m really hoping Yaqub’s bucks the trend of having your steak come in any form as long as its well done! What was really interesting to hear was that Yaqub’s will also be offering a comprehensive fish menu which will include everything from sea bass and salmon to lobster!

So when is Yaqub’s opening. Drum roll please……. Yaqub’s Steakhouse will be opening this coming Friday which also happens to be the 13th! Not that we Muslims believe in superstition! So start crossing off your dates on the calendar and join us in the countdown to the latest edition to the Halal Food landscape in Birmingham.
