Fiesta del Asado is an Argentine Restaurant just outside Birmingham City Centre, and is part of the Lasan Group, which is going from strength to strength in Birmingham. As you walk in, you are greeted by friendly staff and warm atmosphere with dark wood furniture, candlelit tables and inviting smell from the open fronted kitchen. We were sat in a lovely quiet corner and ordered two glasses of Malbec whilst perusing the mouth-watering menu. The restaurant is a meat lovers paradise, and any steak aficionado will be spoilt for choice. Our waitress for the night was fantastic, had a great knowledge of the menu and the cuts of steak and made sure we were happy with what we were ordering. To start, the Pastel de Cangrejo caught my eye. I wanted to go for something that wasn’t too heavy and a crab cake sounded perfect. It was light and fluffy and had a real kick to it as well. The sweetcorn salsa that accompanied did a good job of being refreshing complimented it really well. My husband went for the Empanadas – filled with chicken and sweetcorn, they were packed with filling, not too greasy and went well with the slight smoky red pepper sauce that came alongside. For our mains, we both obviously went for steak, but had the polar opposite when it came to the cut. Lee had the Asado de tiara – 16oz 4 bone cross cut beef rib; cooked on the bone. (£18.79) full of fat and flavour, while I went for the Bife de Angosto – 16oz single muscle taken from the loin. (£23.98) The steaks both come with salad and chimichurri (which is fantastic) and other sides can be ordered as extra. We tried the Papas fritas con perejil y ago (Fries with parsley and garlic), Papas criolla (Roasted potato tossed in paprika and oregano) and the Ensalada de tomate y cebolla, (Tomato and red onion salad with garlic oil) all £1.99 as well as the Malbec sauce and the Bernaise sauce. Needless to say this was FAR too much food and we struggled to finish the sides. The roasted potatoes were spicy and really well cooked – so light and fluffy on in the inside and just delicious when dunked in the Chimichurri. The steaks were cooked perfectly, and mine was by far the best steak I’ve had in a while. Lee’s Cross cut Beef Rib really was a sight to behold and I’m told tasted even better than it looked! I preferred the Bernaise sauce to the Malbec, which I felt could have done with being a bit thicker, but this is the tiniest of criticisms and I thought the whole meal was fantastic. I would thoroughly recommend Fiesta del Asado – great atmosphere and really friendly service and great food on top. http://fiestadelasado.co.uk Disclosure: We were invited to dine at Fiesta Del Asado as guests of the restaurant.
