Fiesta Del Asado has got to be my favourite place in Birmingham for steak or any sort of grilled meat come to think of it. I’ve never been to Argentina but it’s definitely somewhere I want to visit after sampling the wares of this Birmingham eatery.
If you do decided to visit this restaurant next time you’re in Birmingham, be sure to try the bread and marinated gordal olives stuffed with guindilla (£2.99) while you peruse the menu. The olives are so delicious and have the perfect combination of sweetness, salt and a mammoth kick of chilli and I just can’t get enough of them.
We visited with Grandma Gourmand who likes to accompany us on our culinary adventures when she comes to visit. You can always guarentee that Grandma will order something that everyone wants to taste and the Estofado de ternera (£19.89) was no exception. Cubed brisket braised for 12 hours in a malbec & salchichon sauce served with crisp potato and blackened corn was so filling that she was happy to share some with us. The sauce was truly delicious and the beef just melted in the mouth which is exactly what you want from a brisket.
Grandpa Gourmand liked the Asado de tira (£21.49) so much during our previous visit that he couldn’t resist ordering again. 16oz 4 bone cross cut beef rib; cooked on the bone for a fuller flavour is the perfect dish for any meat lover. I ordered wisely as I knew I would get to sample a huge chunk of this!
You may wonder why I opted for the Pollo a la parrilla (£14.89) and not a steak? I love steak and I love the taste of the steak from here so much but the last time we visited Baby Gourmand had the most delicous chicken and there was just no way I was going to visit without ordering a portion of the grilled 1/2 chicken marinated in garlic & thyme served with tomato, peppers and capers. [served on the bone] for myself, after all I knew I would get some of Grandpa Gourmand’s steak!
No visit is complete without a portion of the papas fritas con perejil y ajo (£1.99) or fries with parsley and garlic and to be honest one portion just isn’t enough as they are so delicious.
I can’t wait for my next visit to Fiesta Del Asado and hope it’s sooner rather than later as I need my grilled meat fix.
