mini rockville reviews, El Patio & All Aboard

Jayask | Jul 17, 2003 07:29 PM

We had lunch at El Patio (Argentine) today. Its more of a cafe in style than restaurant or bakery. Tried a bunch of stuff (spinach tortilla, matambre, grilled chicken, empanadas.) The beef empanada was the standout. The pastry w/mebrillo (the closed pastry) was good, but not great. My g/f liked the merangues w/dulce de leche.

The other stuff was ok, but not as good as what I'm used to from nyc Argie restauarants.

My main reason for this post is to let u know that they will start having parillada (Arhentine mixed grill) in a couple of weeks. :)

Countdown for me moving from nyc to the DC area (Ballston)....2 weeks, yay. :)

Oh, btw...tried All Aboard in rockville last trip. I didnt like their bubble tea, but their appetizers (like salt/pepper/basil chicken) were good. i didnt try the aisan topped pizzas. I like Tea Neck Court (Montgomery mall) and Tenren better. I still dont like I-cream/Maria's for bubble tea. :) We also got goodies at Aji Ichiban (Asian snacks) that trip. It's new to teh area (rockville) and is the only one in the dc area.
