Would you describe yourself as the carnivorous kind? Do you frequently get a hankering for meat? Well then let me just get this right out in the beginning - you won't find a better steak than Sosta's steak. I'm sure you could find a cheaper piece of meat, maybe even a cheaper larger piece of meat; what you won't find, however, is the same quality.
I've eaten at Sosta's Argentinian Restaurant twice now, the first time being last year. It was in that instance that I had their veal special and more tequila than one girl should ever admit too. It was delicious. Having now returned again, I'm proud to say that even with the restaurant being on the slightly higher scale price-wise, it really is worth the visit.
[ADVERT]This was a date night for me. I'd decided to spoil my boyfriend and so we got ourselves a $60 bottle of wine – 1883 Malbec, to be exact. The wine was suggested to us by our waiter and I found it to be smooth, flavoursome, full-bodied, and perfectly complimenting to the food.
I had a 300g fillet steak done medium, whilst my boyfriend had a 400g sirloin cooked medium-rare. Both steaks were cooked to perfection. Sosta's is a restaurant that knows their meat and how to cook it. Both of us are very big fans of steak and at times can be hard to impress but from the first sight of our steaks we were salivating. Once the first piece hit our mouths we felt as though we were in heaven. There was absolutely no fat on my fillet and barely enough on the sirloin for it to even be called fat. The wine complimented it astoundingly and the steaks were paired with the perfect roast potatoes that I believe may have been seasoned with paprika.
Our dessert was the Torte Mojada, which is described as layers of chocolate sponge soaked with sugar syrup and brandy, filled with Argentinian caramel, Chantilly cream and fruit, finished with warm chocolate. Now, I personally am really not a big fan of chocolate, I have tiny, minuscule amounts in comparison to the normal person. The Torte Mojada is quite literally a slice of heaven. It melted in my mouth; it was sweet, soft and decadent. The strawberries and cream that accompanied it were fresh and sweet; yet not overpowering.
If I were to rate Sosta, there wouldn't be a high enough ranking. I'd recommend this restaurant to anyone, perhaps excluding vegetarians given the menu has non-meat dishes besides the desserts. It's Sosta's classy brick walling, wooden floors and rich aromas that entice you in, but it's their food that makes you stay.
