Blue Elephant

Steak in Blantyre

This is a great watering hole for carb-heavy grub such as chargrilled burgers and steaks, with booths inside and tables alfresco beneath an awning. From 5pm on Monday, get a curry and a Carlsberg for MK1750; from 5pm on Tuesday, buy one burger and get one free.

Bands play on Wednesday and Saturday nights, and there are DJs on Fridays. Come weekends it's packed to the gills with a lively local and expat crowd who come for the thumping music.
