If you love meat, you’re gonna love this place

I eat almost anything. I can enjoy any cuisine like a kid in a toy shop. But of course I have my favourites. And I know maybe we don’t live on the best time to admit it, but… I just love meat! Yes, meat is my favourite food. That said, it is inevitable that I love Argentinian cuisine.

A little side story: I have lived in Argentina for 3 years and have great memories of its food. I don’t want to say it’s my favourite cuisine because I love a lot of things, but defilingly it’s in my top 3.

So I was excited to finally go to Vos. My husband and I always said we should go but, you know… always next week.

We made reservations for a Saturday night in advance and you should probably do the same, as it gets busy. Do you know when you enter a restaurant and see a guy who looks like the owner walking fast all over the place? Every time I see this scene I know I have entered a good restaurant.

To start, we ordered empanadas, a traditional Argentine savoury pastry. Mine was filled with Asado de tira y chorizo aumado (ribs and smoked sausage) ($5) and my husband’s had carne de ternera (veal) ($5) inside.

They offer a tasting plate with 4 empanadas of your choice ($20). If we were with more people we would probably order this one so you could taste more flavours.

As my main dish, I ordered the bife de chorizo (New York Cut-Argentinean meat) ($34) plus Papas finas al romero (French Fries-Smoked Salt-Rosmary) ($8). It was as juicy as I remember an authentic Argentinian meat. I love this cut because the fat is distributed all over the meat, so you can imagine how soft it is!

My husband ordered the Ojo de bife ancho (Ribeye-Cap off-Argentinean meat) ($34) and Batatas Gajos Marinadas (Sweet Potatoes-Marinated) ($8). Like mine, it comes in generous portions and is seasoned to perfection.

Like in any Argentinian restaurant, they serve the meat with chimichurri, a traditional sauce made of parsley, garlic, oregano and vinegar.

To finish our great night we split a Don Pedro ($10): a cup of vanilla ice cream, whiskey and whipped cream.
