ONE thing you’ll notice when you visit CSI is that it’s packed. It gets really busy at peak times.
Because of that, when the club renovated its kitchen and dining room, it looked to better accommodate that high volume of patrons. Club marketing and promotions co-ordinator Laura Rojek said,
“We created a new fresh space for patrons to dine in. But we kept to our signature style with delicious traditional dishes. It’s what our visitors have come to expect from the grill with all the usual favourites. Our aim is to make sure all dishes are affordable and family friendly.”
But it’s not all what you’d expect, especially if you like to go meat free. Laura explained that the club had introduced a plant-based section to its menu.
It’s part of the club’s commitment to respond to patrons’ needs. Now it can accommodate the growing need for different dietary requirements, such as hoisin chicken stir fry, vegan delight burger and chicken schnitzel.
And that’s not the only change the club hopes to make. It’s looking at ways it can be more environmentally friendly. Obviously, a club that makes a big volume of food creates a big volume of green waste. So it has introduced FOGO bins to the kitchen to help its drive to be greener.·
As part of the Ipswich community, the club also looks to give back where it can. Laura said, “We pride ourselves in implementing initiatives that assist our community, including an outreach drive where $5 from every kids’ meal sold goes towards the chaplaincy program to assist local schools in area.
“We proudly facilitate, assist and provide funds for organisations by hosting numerous charity luncheons at the club throughout the year.”
