Best steak in town TEXT: FRANK VAN LIESHOUT | PHOTOS: JEREMY VAESSEN

Sit down for a delicious premium steak at the excellent Steakhouse Eldorado in Heerlen, part of the prizewinning Parkstad Limburg region. The oak furniture, cowhide seats and warm colours might look like retro chic, but they are the real thing. As is everything else about the Steakhouse Eldorado. Located on Pancratius Square, next to 12th-century St.Pancras church, Eldorado is one of the oldest and most renowned restaurants in town. “We specialise in premium Argentine filet tenderloin, sirloin and rump steaks as well as a range of other prime cut meat dishes,” says manager Andrea Miljkovic. “Our beef comes from grass-fed black Angus cattle raised on the vast Argentine Pampas, where they have all the freedom and natural goodness in the world. The meat has no additives, has matured for four weeks and is cut and grilled on the spot, minutes before it’s served on your plate.”

Originally from the former Yugoslavia, Andrea’s parents Dubravka and Zlatko took over the reputed restaurant 14 years ago. With ‘mama’ Dubravka in the kitchen and father Zlatko and brother Emil in front-ofhouse roles, they have built up a loyal clientele by using only the best of ingredients, fabulous cooking and friendly service as well as adding some exotic specialties of their own. These include Dubravka’s exotic Balkan dishes such as cevapcici and pljeskavica, and Zlatko’s unmistakable talent for making his guests feel at home. “We cater for all kinds of people, nationalities and events here, but whether people have come for a business dinner, a romantic evening or a family party, they all leave with a warm feeling in their hearts. And that’s what really matters.”
