So I came here with my girlfriend and her family because we had a Groupon for like $60 worth of food. We get here at Noon on a Saturday afternoon, and the place is literally empty. In fact, in the two hours we were there, we only saw two other tables. It was clear as to why there was a Groupon out and about. Business is not good.
We ordered a ton of stuff, and we split everything like tapas. We asked our server about bakery/dessert items being valid with the Groupon, and he said no. We asked, because the restrictions on the Groupon page were unclear delineating between dessert items and bakery items, and he said we couldn't have any of it, which was kind of a bummer, because instead of getting a meal and dessert, we had to just eat a ton of food.
Anywho, we got the Picada (Variety of cold cuts (5 plates)), a Chicken Caesar Salad (Romaine lettuce, croutons, chicken breast and grated cheese with Caesar dressing), a beef and a chicken empanada, a Spanish Style Tortilla (Five eggs, potatoes, red peppers, onions and pepperoni baked in our grandma's pan), and a chorpian sub with a side of french fries.
The Picada was pretty ok. It had green olives, eggplant of some sort, some little finger sandwiches with ham and more olives, some crostinis, and a plate of salami and some delicious cheese. I'm a little vague in my descriptions because the menu was and I just ate without question. It was a good little shareable item, except I hate olives.
The Chicken Caesar Salad was also ok. The croutons were super hard and kind of burnt, and the dressing was pretty ok.
The beef empanada was very good. The beef was nicely seasoned, and the dough was nice and crispy and chewy and cooked well. The less fatty chicken empanada, however, was a little dry, and I needed help from the very well, obviously housemade chimichurri sauce to get through it.
Now for the reason this place got two stars instead of three. The Spanish Style Tortilla. I was most looking forward to this item when we came to this place, but the entire thing was very, very bland. There was absolute no salt or seasoning of any kind. It tasted like eggs and potatoes and unseasoned veggies. Very unimpressive.
After all this food, we decided to box up the sub and take it home. When we ate it for dinner later that night, the sausage was actually quite nice. It was like chorizo, but more fajita-y, if that's a word. The bread was also nice, and the veggies in the sub were actually seasoned, proving that they had seasoning in the kitchen at all. The only thing was that the bread was comically disproportionate to the meat within. The bread with huge, making the sausage seem like a Vienna sausage, but the taste was there.
At the end of our meal, by the way, the manager of the joint took care of our check for us, and since we somehow didn't order enough food to cover the $60, she offered us something from the dessert menu or the bakery... which the previous guy did not, which ruffled our feathers a little.
Overall, I wouldn't recommend getting the Groupon, because that would buy you too much unimpressive food. Just stop by for the choripan sub and the dulce de leche cream puff we ended up getting. Those items are very, very good
