Buen Ayre -Hackney 

Buen Ayre, Broadway market, E8 4QJ
 You like steak you say? Ok well I have found it! You need to go and take your wife, girlfriend, husband, work colleague, mum, dad, next door neighbor, milkman and just generally shout it from the rooftops as this is quite possibly the best steak you will eat in London!

It describes itself as a traditional Argentine grill and specialises in Parilla (the grill over an open fire used to cook the meat) grilled steak and red wine.

Owned by Argentinian born chef John Rattagan, this bustling bijoux restaurant has a great atmosphere with smiling waiters whipping around the tables taking care of their patrons. Having a peak outside the window there is further seating in a conservatory type area which looks like it had some big groups of diners.

Warning! Do not go any further if pictures of rare meat offends you 😉

2 friends ordered a parrillada deluxe which was a mixed grill at £28 pp.

14oz prime Argentine Sirloin steak + 11oz grilled Argentine Rib-eye steak, two Argentine-style pork sausages + black pudding + provolone cheese

We also had the rib eye at £21.50

And the sirloin at £14.50

We had a bottle of Argentinian Cab Sav (£20.50), as recommended by the waitress, to wash down the meat which was a perfect partner to the deep flavours of the steak.

Stunning food and reasonably priced for what made a gorgeous evening with friends.

Tip-You have to book to get a seat, as it’s quite small

Thanks for reading, as always 💋
