Happy Friday, everyone! Do you know what Friday means? It means lunch out of the office, yay! (For the record, I don’t always eat lunch outside the office on Fridays, but I try to as much as I can.)
As if I hadn’t had enough Latin American food recently, today I lunched at Punto-Sur, an Argentinian-Uruguayan joint serving empanadas, salads, sandwiches, grilled meats, pastas, and desserts, among other things. As a small starter for the table, the restaurant offers savory bread with garlicky-mayo (and butter)… mmm, so tasty! #fatty
To continue the meal, I sampled some empanadas, Latin American pastries filled with a variety of sweet and savory selections. I tried the carne picante (spicy beef) and capresse (mozzarella, tomato, and basil) options, which turned out to be somewhere between okay and fine, based on my previous experiences with empanadas. A little more filling inside would’ve been nice.
I ordered the skirt steak sandwich with fries for my main entree. FYI, the sandwich is big enough to share, especially if you’ve had some empanadas or other appetizers already. The sandwich came with green chimichurri sauce on the side to further flavor my skirt steak.
Did you know that chimichurri sauce generally includes parsley, garlic, olive oil, oregano, and white (or red) wine vinegar? Or so Wikipedia says… but hey, that’s totally a legitimate source nowadays!
The thick-cut fries were pretty standard fare, though I appreciated that they weren’t overcooked. I’d say the entree rated between okay and fine for me. It was generally what I expected it to be, so I’m not complainin’. Plus, I was with my Toastmasters crew, so it was all good. Good way to start the weekend.
