Finally summer holidays and for those who are not lucky enough to be on holiday all month, we have a program of Sunday night specials to keep you enjoying the whole weekend and start the week in the right way.

There is something for the Kiwis and Argentinean regulars (and those who just like great food and appreciate good value).

The line up for Sundays in August is:

1 August - Two for One Milanesa Napolitana
8 August - Kiwi Mussel Extravaganza
15 August - Empanadas & vino night
22 August - Kiwi steak and cheese pie night
29 August - End of summer :( - barbecue & malbec :)

Sunday 1 August

Two for one Milanesa Napolitana (£13.50) with fries or salad from 6pm to 8pm.

We have a special on our famous Milanesa Napolitana - two for the price of one. If you haven't tried this classic Argentine dish, this is a great time to be initiated. Milanesa Napolitana is a typical Argentine meal consisting of Argentine beef which is flattened, crumbed, fried briefly then baked with a chunky tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese topping. Good for family with kids and totally satisfying.

Sunday 8 August - Kiwi mussel night

Since we opened so many people have tried the amazing green lipped mussel from New Zealand. For those who have not tried them, they are huge, meaty and delicious.

For £14.50 per person we will serve:

Salad of six mixed baby leaves with summer fruit, crispy sweetcure bacon and parmesan cheese
New Zealand green lipped mussels with chunky fries

Choice of three flavours:

  • our classic white wine, cream, tomato and onion sauce
  • tomato provencal sauce (tomato with onion, garlic and herbs)
  • mariniere sauce (shallots, garlic, parsley and white wine)

15 August - Empanadas & vino night

Come and try try the best Argentinean empanadas in London.

We will be serving our full range of fillings (which are those we also sell to takeaway) at a very special price of £2 each:

Ribeye with provaleta
Rosemary marinated New Zealand lamb with sweet potato
Sweetcorn in a béchamel sauce
Tomato, basil and mozzarella cheese
Lightly spiced minced beef with onion, green olives, hard boiled egg and raisins

22 August - Kiwi steak and cheese pie night

If you are true Kiwi, you will know the magic of a combination of tender, slow cooked premium steak with cheese - a taste combination made in heaven, especially with a bit of Watties tomato sauce and soft flakey pastry......yum!

So on 22 August, we will be revisiting the hangover cure of the century and relishing comfort food at its best:

2 courses - £13.50

Kiwi steak and cheese pie night served with sweet potato mash and green salad
Hokey pokey ice cream

29 August - Barbecue & Malbec

For what could be the last time this summer, a barbecue to celebrate the long hot days and prepare ourselves for Autumn once again.

Barbecue £18.50 per person

Chorizo in bread or provaleta cheese to start
Choice of steak, chicken or vegetarian kebabs of mushrooms, peppers, zucchini and halloumi
Summer salad selection

Seasonal stone fruit open pie with praline nuts and a scoop of home made vanilla icecream

As usual, you need to pre book your table. Call, send us an email or pop in and let us know for which Sunday you would like to come.

Many thanks and looking forward to seeing you between Sundays!
