So we finally got around to trying to Porteño on a Friday a couple of weeks ago. The open wood fire was perfect for the gloomy weather that we've been experiencing as of late.
Toasty open fire loaded up with meat
We got there just after 6 and there was already a massive line, luckily we had booked a table! (they only take bookings for 5 people +)
Perusing the menu
More wood fire action
Pan de Casa - House Baked Bread with Olive Oil & Pork Pate
Ceviche Peruano - Kingfish Ceviche, Corn, Cucumber, Sweet Potato and Bottarga
Lengua En Escabeche - Pickled Veal Tongue
Beetroot salad - This was a great dish, I loved the earthiness of the beetroot.
Cocktail # 1 the name of which escapes me - forgive me, it was Friiiday!!
One of the specials of the day - Barramundi
and the long awaited Chanchito a la Cruz - 8 hour Woodfired Free Range Suckling Pig - I only wish there was way more crackling!
