An Argentinian steakhouse that opened a while ago at 52 Tanner Street. http://www.constancia.co.uk/

Good earthy rich morcilla, rich without any rough metallic flavours. Served with piece of red pepper, softened by the heat of grill, revealing a tiny bit of its own sweetness and smoke, draped across the sausage like a striking scarf.

The Argentinian fillet was not bad, grilled rare as requested, flavours very slightly on a lighter side (not sure how long it was aged), but very tender with a medium beefiness. Went nicely with modest dabs of the piquant chimichurri sauce.

Chips were excellent -- very crispy on the outside, light and puffy on the inside.

A good dense eggy flan enlivened with dulce de leche.

A serviceable house red, an Argentinian malbec iirc, big, earthy and fruity.
