Buenos Aires Argentinian Restaurant, Adelaide

Dinner at Buenos Aires, an Argentinian restaurant on Hutt Street just on the outskirts of the CBD. Our group of 5 wanted to start off with a bottle of sangria but was indecisive as to whether we should get the red or white wine; in other words, which one was sweeter? We asked our waiter figuring that she’ll know best and instead get a non helpful and clueless answer of, “Depends what you like, one’s red, one’s white?”. That didn’t answer our question or was helpful one bit. Seriously. If you were wondering, we went with the red.

Entrees:

Chorizo campero, Norberto’s own family recipe of Argentinian style sausage charcoal grilled & basted with “chimichurri”; $15.90
Empanadas, Homemade Beef Empanadas; $16.90

The chorizo was not the kind of chorizo that I’m used to – it was on the fatty and grainy side for my palate. Wasn’t a favourite amongst us all and the same could be said about the empanadas. The pastry was uncooked and broke apart once jabbed at with our forks, we pretty much left the entrees to the side and tackled our mains instead.

THIS was our main – a whopping 2kg of a variety of meat cuts. Carnivores, DIG IN!

Parrillada Mixta, Meat Grill for Two (Minimum of 2 people), Chef’s selection of lamb, pork, black pudding, chicken, kidneys,spicy Argentinian sausage, and steak served on a charcoal grill (Approx 1kg per person) served with stir fried vegetables and spanish chips. A traditional Argentinian feast! $101.80

Meat, meat and more meat! Meat overdose, food comas all around. This is for TWO people, seriously?! We almost got through it all which is a mean feat for 5 measly girls but did we enjoy it? Not so much. The food was mediocre, the service poor and a very expensive bill at the end.

Food: 2/5
Service: 2/5
Value: 2/5
Ambience: 3/5

    Even though the taste didn’t match up, your photos look great as usual! Have you found anywhere that makes good empanadas in Adelaide?
