A very solid experience: Restaurant Alcorta (24. October 2017)

| February 19, 2018 | 0 Comments

The “Arrollado de Ternera con Verduras (dressed veal with vegetables)” (120 ARS) is something you can kind of find on every menu in any Argentinian restaurant – at least that is what it seemed like. Therefore, it was finally time to try that ‘dressed veal’. And while it did not entirely look appealing at first, it was surprisingly tasty.

Somehow, I do love “blood sausage”, so I had to try their “morcilla” (85 ARS on the menu, but only charged 42.50 ARS). And it was fine – nothing spectacular really but definitely a sound, tasty sausage.

As I have also never tried “Cabrito Serrano (small goat from the hills)” (350 ARS) before, it was time to go for that. Now, there was one tiny problem with that – there are a lot of bones attached to that little meat there is. And it is quite tricky to get the meat from the bones so basically the only option is to nibble on it and eat it with your fingers. No idea how you would be able to eat it with proper cutlery. Anyhow, the meat is quite tasty but also rather intense.

The “espinacas a la crema (spinach with cream sauce)” (95 ARS) which I had as a side dish was fine but lacked salt – something which can be easily fixed but is still a bit surprising.

What I liked – although the portion was way larger than expected – was the “dulce de leche ice cream” (85 ARS). It is basically like caramel or at least the flavour strongly resembles caramel.

The bread which was included in the “cover charge” (39 ARS) was rather disappointing. Regular white bread, some dry bread sticks and some weird kind of ‘dip’. Well, luckily the main courses were better.

The place itself is actually quite lovely – relatively large and, therefore, a bit impersonal but they make sure you’re well taken care of. The waiters are doing a fair job – they are not entirely attentive and sometimes you really have to wait quite a bit but overall, the service is okay.

In terms of pricing, you can’t say much. Which is also true with regards to the wines they offer – of course you can find anything from 400 ARS to several thousand ars, but even the ‘not so pricey ones’ like the “Saint Felicien Cabarnet Sauvignon” (595 ARS) or the “Salentein Sauvignon” (525 ARS) were good and fair in price. Which is also true for the “sparkling water” (60 ARS) or the “pear vodka” (190 ARS) which was served way more generously than expected. So, all in all, the Restaurant Alcorta is definitely a place you can pay a visit to when in Córdoba – just make sure to book a table in advance as it gets quite quickly quite crowded.
