The menu is a smorgasbord of meat; chicken, beef, pork, lamb, sausages and even sweetbreads! There’s also a nice selection of side dishes including polenta, cassava and vegetables. After studying the menu for a few minutes, the three of us decide on the Wood-fired pig, polenta and beef short ribs.
|Beef short ribs, Wood-fired pig & Polenta|
|White Polenta with Gorgonzola & Walnuts $16|
The polenta is very smooth and soft, the gorgonzola adds a sharp salt taste, while the walnuts provide a nice crunchy texture.
|Beef Short Ribs $40|
The short ribs are cut at 2cm across the rib, which according to the menu is a typical Argentinean cut. The meat is slightly tough for my liking but is well flavoured.
|8 Hour Wood-fired Pig $46|
Next comes the star of the show, the famous 8 hour wood-fired pig. This little pig has been marinating in his juices for 8 hours just for me to enjoy. The crackling is crispy, the meat is juicy and tender.
