Night 22 - Mucho Mucho Carne - March 20, 2013
With good directions from our hostess, we went to scout a few (from dozens) of nearby restaurants. The first was very beautiful, but kind of expensive. The second was much more reasonable, and we took residence at a quiet street-side table around 9:30PM. We had a couple of bottles of cold water, a salad, and each ordered a steak. Plus a fine bottle of Santa Julia Malbec. A few minutes later our Brazilian biker acquaintance from Casa del Campo turned up as well, further validating the bona fides of the restaurant. When the steaks arrived, K noticed right away that her filet mignon was enormous, but that my Bife de Chorizo (thick steak) was obscene. When they say thick, they mean 3 inches or more. Weighing in at about one full pound, this juicy delight took over an hour to eat.
