Instead of a parilla (Argentinian BBQ place) we went to our favorite restaurant, Annette. Since we’ve only been here about a week, it doesn’t take much to become our favorite.
One good glass of malbec and a dulce de leche dessert and you move to the top of our list.
Not only is Annette good, it’s half a block from our apartment. We can see it from our balcony, so were able to judge when the optimal dining time would be.
9:00 pm completely dead
9:30 pm – first diners arrive
10:00 pm – several more people show up
10:30pm – about half full (we head over)
10:35 pm – we’re seated
10:40pm – drinking complimentary glass of champagne
The waitress suggested we both get ojo de bife. After a panicked moment thinking I was going to eat a cow eyeball, Jeff assured me it was a ribeye steak.
I’m relieved and happy to report that is was really good. Tender, juicy and fabulous.
11:30 pm – restaurant still full of people.
12:00 am eating giant glass of dulce de leche
If the steak is this good, how bad can the intestines, brain, tongue and testicles be…..
