Puerto La Boca (Little Italy)


Anh and I visited an Argentinian Steakhouse a little while back in Little Italy.  We didn’t know there was such a place in that location but off we were.  We do tend to get random deals to restaurants that we’ve never been to before and hope to find good food around the bend.

The menu had some nice pictures and wasn’t super complex so after perusing it we ordered some grub!

We got there kind of early so we were the only patrons enjoying the Puerto La Boca ambiance.  We liked the open kitchen and a cozy private room in the back.   

Here it is, the Picana for two.  You get the meat, mashed potatoes, olives, bread, butter, and a chimichurri sauce.  The meat was fairly moist and well seasoned.  I didn’t think the chimichurri sauce added too much.  We had a chimichurri sauce whipped up by one of our chef friends before that would have highlighted the meat better.  There wasn’t much that you can complain about except for the lack of vegetables.  The garnish on the left doesn’t really count.  The $49.95 price tag is comparable to an all you can eat place where you can get whatever you want.  So it would be hard to go back just from that aspect alone.  However, if you have a hard time regulating your intake, maybe this isn’t a bad idea.  🙂

About Darren

Fooood! I love it if you can't tell already. I love everything about it. The taste, the smell, the look, the feel, the satisfaction, the gratification, and ultimately: the fun! I've been in San Diego for about 10 years now and it amazes me that there are still places to uncover. Traveling, eating, and taking pictures of food has always been a hobby of mine. So naturally Michael and I thought it made sense to share what we found with all of you. I tend to side with the savory but never shy away from a knock out dessert. If you have a place you think we haven't tried let us know! We're always on the lookout...
