If you have a craving for Argentinan food, you have to check out Las Estancia Argentina. Here’s my little review of my first experience and trying a blood sausage!
They have a new location at the Civic Center:
They have a new location at the Civic Center:1050 NW 14th St
Miami, FL 33136
The location is upscale and welcoming. Modern and sleek.
For started with tried a sampler with the following: Mini Choripan, Spinach Tart, Assorted Empanadas ( beef, chicken, four cheese).Everything was wonderful. The spinach tart has the most delectable flaky crust and warm cheesy spinach filling. All the empanadas were top notch. The stand out would have to the four cheese empanada. I would say this is a must try. I’ve never had a memorable cheese empanada in my life (living in Miami, that says a lot).
Our entree had well-sized portions of: parrillada, picanha, skirt steak, short ribs, sweetbreads.In the end loved the skirt steak the best, everything was perfectly cooked and seasoned. I especially loved trying this sausage looking item. It looks like a blood sausage, but I could be mistaken.
I cannot really explain what the exact flavor is like. Not bad, but nothing like you would expect. Argentina is famous for their chimichurri, and the house chimichurri was amazing. I put it on everything from appetizers to meats. It even works for coating over fries. Mayonnaise and mustard are most common in Argentina for fries, however.
We sampled; pastries like the coquito, arrollado, and alfajor.
Argentinians love their dulce de leche. I’m not a fan, but I decided to try each of these dulce de leche slathered treats anyway. They were all a bit overly sweet, but once I noticed everyone ordering coffee, I ordered one up and realized these are for dipping! So get yourself a coffee to dip these and you won’t need to add any sugar. You’ll be set. The perfect end to your meal.
