I've been wanting to try the some off-the-beaten-path Ossinng restaurants for a long time. El Duraznito, across the street from
Churrasqueira Ribatejo, is easy to miss as there's little to no signage and their vertical blinds don't suggest a restaurant.
Inside it's pretty bright, nice tables and chairs but you're not eating here for the decor. Our waitress was warm and welcoming, she helped us pick out a couple of dishes. Carne Asada was very good, a huge portion of delicious, thin cut steak with some nice char served white rice, french fries, salad, avocado, sweet plantain and beans. It was all good except the french fries, which were ok but not worth the caloric intake.
Our other dish was a melange of shrimp, mussels and crab over fried rice with peas, onions and peppers. It was reminiscent of paella except the rice was fried. This truly huge dish Iwas served with avacado and plantain.
the steak was $10, the seafood $13, $1 for soft drinks. On our way out we saw a lot of dishes we'd like to try...we'll definitely be back.
