I love trying new food and new restaurants. My other passions are Origami and Pokémon

Located close to Stamford Plaza Adelaide Hotel on North Terrace, La Boca is a good place to enjoy Argentinian grill dishes in Adelaide CBD. The meat of the various steak dishes is sourced from 100% grass-fed cattle from the Coonawarra region and you can see the steaks being prepared over the charcoal grill at the front of the restaurant.

Generous enough to be shared if you wish, their Skirt Steak was quite tender with a bit of bite and had the right degree of chargrilled flavour to make eating it an enjoyable experience. Accompanying the steak was the restaurant's chimichurri sauce that the steak can be dipped in to give it a bit of a spicy kick.

If you are not in the mood for beef, their La Boca Pork Ribs is a good option. The pork is tender enough to easily fall off the bones and the slightly crisp exterior is a good contrast to the succulent flesh. If you wish to enhance the smoky taste of the ribs, you can dip it in the barbecue sauce that is provided with the dish.

Great for vegetarians or for those wanting a change from the usual meat dishes, the slices of grilled eggplant in the Eggplant Steak was of a good size with the right amount of bite to it. Aside from chimichurri sauce, the eggplant also comes with a salad that gets its slightly sweet flavour from the inclusion of grilled beetroots and carrots.

To sate our hunger while waiting for our main dishes, we decided to try their Traditional Bread. The process of cooking the bread over the charcoal grill gave it a toasted flavour and the crisp crust set off the soft interior nicely. The bread is best enjoyed by spreading some chimichurri sauce over it.

Should you choose to dine there for lunch, the restaurant offers a $12 Express Lunch special on weekdays, which consists of chicken, skirt steak, pork belly, squid or mushrooms accompanied with a side and a sauce of your choice. If you are looking for a place serving steaks which are a bit different from those normally offered at similar restaurants, consider dropping by La Boca for a visit. We booked our table via Dimmi and enjoyed 50% off our total bill.
