So Friday I was feigning for some beef, if ya know what I mean…and I had heard about this Argentinean steakhouse downtown over on 6th St and Ave A. So off me and the novio went for some steak and quality time. I had read about this place and been meaning to make my way on down. Since I got out early we got there before the dinner rush. The place has exposed brink that is covered with pennants from various footbol (aka soccer to us Anglos) leagues. There was also TV’s broadcasting the games. As the dinner crowd showed up the candles came out and the lights went down. The service was good, our waiter had more personality then the hostess and was great about keeping up with us. We started with bread and butter, and he ordered the beef kabobs and I got the skirt steak with mashed potatoes. A note, if you are not a serious meat eater, I would avoid this place as the Argentineans are KNOWN for beef.
And we were not disappointed either. My steak came with the traditional chimichurri sauce and was cooked to perfection (medium well). My novio’s kabobs were tender and juicy and easy to eat. Because nothing is worse than getting meat that is just this said of rawhide….. Overall the meat was tender and juicy and seasoned well. Even my boyfriend was impressed with the tenderness of the meat. Now of course if you have learned anything its that I also need desert. So one panqueque de manzana y cafe coming up! We got the apple crepe with ice cream and two coffees. And man the coffee tasted like someone’s abuela put their ankles in it, sock and all (which is a good thing ask any Hispanic). Overall the food was great and the service was decent. I’d give it 4 out of 5 forks and cant wait to go back.
So today me and faaablous co-worker walked on down to Num Pang on 26th and Broadway for some lunchn’ and are totally digging this place. Do NOT be fooled by the interior, as it looks like the the 14th st stop on the F line. Its a small spot with limited seating and a straight forward menu. They offer Cambodian style sandwiches and stuff, from noodles to sides like grilled corn. If you like Vietnamese food this is an easy walk over.
So I ordered the chicken chimi sandwich, which is grilled chicken with cucumbers, chili mayo and cilantro and carrots. DELSIH! Love the freshness and crispness of the cucumber against the chicken. Nothing was overpowering and just simply made. The nice thing about Num Pang is that they also offer a designer series of items. This means they partner with local chefs and make limited runs of menu items.
