Finally got to Evita Steakhouse with a friend from out of town. The restaurant is very nice and cozy. The menu continues to expand and has plenty of options in terms of mains, appetizers, salads/soups and all looked delicious and we were told that the menu is refreshed on a regular basis. We started off with appetizers, two mains and finished with dessert,
Frituras de Pollo -Fried chicken tenders with house made spicy sauce – cooked to perfection – the breading nice and crispy without being greasy – spicy sauce which is more a spicy aioli added a nice touch of heat.
Pimentos Rellenos de Pollo -Spiced chicken stuffed jalapenos in a paprika batter – I was a little apprehensive about the level of heat but it was acceptable to me but be warned if you do not like heat. It too was cooked to perfection = the chicken was cooked well moist and delicious.
Bife Tango – Famous Argentinian Steak served with sautéed spinach and onion rings – I would say this is one of the best if not the best steak I have had ever – this includes comparing to the Prime Grill, Abugael’s, Mikes Bistro and Pat’s – it was excellent and the high point of an excellent meal – it was so good that even though the temperature was off – we had ordered it Medium Rate and it came closer to Medium – it was still so tender and moist we ate it any way!
Costillar al Hirno – Two braised short ribs with chef’s signature sauce with garlic and red pepper rice – the ribs were huge with plenty of meat which was tender and fall off the bone. – the sauce was excellent and rich and the rice was flavorful and a compliment to the braise. Another spectacular dish.
Dessert – Is the only item where choice is limited but do not despair the lone choice is excellent! It is Churro & Helado – ice cream served in a house made churro bowl with a chocolate hazelnut and caramel drizzle – an excellent finish to an excellent meal – the churro bowl was nice and crunchy with excellent flavor to match the ice cream and the two sauces – it was great.
Overall one if the best meals I have had in a long time. Definitely a must visit especially if you have something special to celebrate.
