Asado is a broad Spanish term not only for a range of barbecue techniques, but also describes the social event of having or attending a barbecue; food is placed on grills and lowered over the embers of special applewood chips where it acquires its distinct smoked taste by absorbing the aromas and sealing in the flavours... Asado dishes are typically no-nonsense, rustic and honest, yet colourful and fiery - you could say the culinary equivalent of the Argentine Tango! Entertaining family and friends at mealtimes is essentially how Asado dining culture emerged in Argentina and, the life-affirming feelings of togetherness it creates is why it has become so popular around the world. Its rich cuisine benefits from many influences; mainly the diverse immigrant nationalities that have helped it shape and evolve throughout its colourful and, often chequered history.
Although Argentine cuisine is synonymous with high-protein
staples such as Asado-cooked beef, it is invariably a cultural blending of
Mediterranean influences, mostly due to Italian and Spanish settlers bringing their
favourite foods and cooking styles with them over the last 130 years. Argentina is,
in fact, some 85% European and its rich, colourful food reflects this – when we’re
not eating beef, we’re tucking into Spanish-inspired national favourites such as
empanadas and various pastas which originated in Italy.
Whilst our menu couldn’t possibly include all of Argentina’s wonderful dishes at
once, it does provide a well-balanced representation of her most popular cuisine –
we hope you love eating it as much as we love cooking it...

Although many of the dishes are beef, there is also a selection of chicken, fish and vegetarian dishes from which to choose.
