Carnivorous dinner at the popular steak house on Rundle Street – Sosta Argentinian Kitchen with a few of my favourites. The restaurant was buzzing upon arrival on a Saturday night with diners outside, inside and upstairs with hardly a free table in sight – bookings are highly recommended readers! We’re here for one thing, their popular and tasty chunks of steak plonked on a plate with a choice of sauce and a side of crispy fried potatoes, but before we dug into the good and mean stuff, we started off with some small starters to whet our appetites.
Ostras buenos aires; $26.00 (dozen)
Perfect starters of natural Coffin Bay oyster with fresh tomato, spring onion, lemon and olive oil salsa. Naturally sweet with bursts of freshness from the cubed tomato pieces paired with a light and slightly tangy salsa of olive oil and lemon.
Chorizo al horno; $15.90
We thought we’d spice things up a notch with a plate of spicy Barossa smoked chorizo oven roasted with onion, roasted charred capsicum, bread and pickled vegetables. Chorizo makes anything better, does it not? Those charred capsicums were delish – sweet and soft with a hint of char contrasted by a tangy kick of pickled crunchy vegetables.
Onto our monster mains for the evening… dun dun dun!!!
Bife de lomo: 350gr Teys tender beef fillet marinated and charcoal grilled; $35.00 + $8.00 (hongos)
Bife de chorizo: 400gr MSA grade sirloin steak marinated and charcoal grilled; $34.00 + $8.00 (hongos)
These were drool worthy goodness! T-rex would’ve been happy with these although I highly doubt it would’ve been enough for said dinosaur. Hallelujah for a steak house doing a steak right, right? Cooked medium rare for the lot of us, our steaks were drowned in the Hongos sauce; $8.00, a delectable concoction of oven roasted field mushrooms, porcini mushrooms, rosemary and beef glaze. The meat was tender and juicy whilst the sauce was all kinds of yum. Oh, and those crispy fried potatoes were a treat too, bite sized fluffy cubes with a crispy and slightly salty casing, a carboholic’s dream snack. Steaks got the thumbs up from our table but I also hear that their paella for 2, a traditional spanish rice dish cooked with saffron, chorizo,
pork, chicken, seasonal fresh seafood, tomato, peas, chilli and spices; $90.00 is well worth the
food coma order! So who’s with me to my next Sosta outing?!
