NOW THAT’S A BIG ONE! Crawley Morrisons launches GIANT ‘Surf & Turf’ for Father’s Day

Crawley Morrisons is joining the rest of its branches by launching a super-sized surf and turf this weekend to treat the nation’s dads this Father’s Day.

The giant ‘surf & turf’ deal includes one Morrisons The Best Tomahawk steak and two Black Tiger Prawns for just £20.

The enormous prawns are 25cm long and weigh 111g each – more than eight times the size and 27 times the weight of a cold water prawn – at 3cm long and 4g weight respectively. They are sourced from the warm waters of the Mekong delta in Vietnam, where they feed on a natural plankton diet.

The British Best Tomahawk Steak comes in at a huge 900g (over 32oz), the equivalent of nearly four average rump steaks. Served on the bone, the steak is hand prepared by Morrisons butchers at its own food making sites, where the meat is matured for 21 days to maximise richness and flavour.

Morrisons is introducing the £20 deal following the success of the Father’s Day Tomahawk in 2018 which saw the supermarket sell over 10,000 steaks over one weekend. However, meat and seafood lovers will need to be quick as the deal will only run between 13 to 16 June[i]. Customers can also buy each product separately – two giant Black Tiger prawns will cost £5, and each The Best Tomahawk is priced at £15. 

Morrisons Crawley store manager said:

“The giant surf and turf is our meatiest challenge yet for Dads on Father’s Day. We hope they enjoy it this weekend – whether they’re attempting it solo or enjoying it as a family meal.”  

Customers who aren’t up for the challenge, can ask Morrisons butchers to cut a slightly smaller steak – such as a fillet, rump, ribeye or sirloin. The supermarket has 2,000 professional instore butchers who can bone, trim, seam and prepare steaks, plus advise on recipes, cooking and wine pairing. All of the supermarket’s beef is sourced directly from British farmers.

The Giant Surf & Turf will be available at Crawley Morrisons supermarkets this weekend (Thursday 13th to Sunday 16th June) or while stocks last. For more information visit: www.morrisons.com

Crawley restaurant, Mio Gusto launches 50% off for residents and front line workers

Published

Whilst COVID-19 still causes disruption across the town, one local restaurant owner has taken the decision to offer residents and front line workers a huge 50% off on their menu.

While the government launched the ‘Eat out to Help out’ scheme, the new Mio Gusto was still under renovation which meant potential customers were unable to take advantage of the scheme. Now owner Yashar Koksal, owner of Mio Gusto, has taken the decision to give his customers an even better scheme to promote and offer their whole menu at an even greater discount of 50% off all food (drinks not included).

Crawley Mayor Francis Guidera officially opens Mio Gusto.

The Pizzeria has already gained rave reviews from customers since it was opened by Crawley Mayor Francis Guidera.

Executive Chef Yasar Koksal is working alongside his Head Chef Francesco Furrielo to create the exciting menu.

But Mio Gusto is a much more exciting concept than a traditional Pizzeria. It’s elegant menu has taken customers by storm with dishes you would usually expect to find in a Michelin Star venue.

The relaxed setting of the restaurant based underneath Rhythm Nightclub at 107 High Street, Crawley, has been completely redesigned with an elegant style that, even with the social distancing rules, still makes you feel comfortable and engaged with the ambience.

Mr Koksal said:

“It is vital that we keep our local economy moving and don’t just give up. This is why I am launching this offer to everyone.”

The offer is open to any customers and applies to all their food, starters, mains and deserts.

Mr Koksal said that the offer will be reviewed for residents after two weeks, but will remain in place for all front-line workers till the end of the year.

Mio Gusto is open seven days a week from 12pm to 10pm with last orders at 9.

Sittings are available at 12pm, 3pm, 6pm and 8pm.
