Sample Menu

• Appetizer - Dry-aged salami from Tandil, with pickles and cheese. We pair this with a local favorite cocktail, the Fernandito (Coke and Fernet).
• Spinach Mango and Caramelized Pecan Salad - We will show you how to caramelize the pecans and cut the mango for our signature salad. We mix in some olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
• Choripan - A classic starter for any asado. The choripan is a pork sausage sandwich served on a bread roll and covered with your own chimichurri.
• Morcipan - We serve our blood sausage on bread and top it with salsa criolla. This is a fresh salsa made with onions, bell peppers, and vinegar.
• Matambrito (Pork Flank Steak) - This cut only exists in Argentina. We marinate it overnight in a mixture of vinegar, freshly squeezed lemon juice, garlic, salt, and pizza seasonings.
• Strip Steak or Picanha (depends on availability) - The main cut of steak is perfectly cooked to your preference by our expert grill master. We garnish it with a little bit of your own chimichurri.
• Mate (pronounced Mah-teh) - Misnomer, this is normally not served as dessert, except for the presentation we make, which is traditional and requires the use of charcoal embers.
• Vigilantes - A traditional dessert of a thick slice of cheese with quince paste. We like to sprinkle a little smoked sea salt on top.
