As Buenos Aires bursts into shades of purple and pink, we’re quickly reminded why Spring is by far our favourite season at Fierro Hotel. Sunny afternoons and balmy evenings mean it’s the perfect season to be outdoors in Buenos Aires enjoying yourself – preferably with a cocktail or wine glass in hand.
At UCO, Fierro Hotel’s in-house restaurant, we’ve created a brand new Spring menu to get you in the mood for Buenos Aires’ most picturesque season.
To be enjoyed inside or in the green surroundings of our newly refurbished garden patio, if you arrive here between 5:30 PM and 7:30 PM, you’ll have the bonus of being in time for our new happy hour. With a hugely extensive wine menu covering all regions of Argentina (not just your average Malbec) and a few of our latest cocktail concoctions, there’s likely a tipple for every taste.
We like to make sure our menus are always seasonal and incorporate locally produced food, with this in mind, our head chef, Francisco García, has been busy at work coming up with plenty of new culinary creations ready for you to sample. Highlights include our new spicy Peruvian style rice, made up of yellow hot pepper, coriander, lemon, white fish and prawns, it’ll certainly pack a punch for lovers of spice.
With a few new editions to our mains menu, perfect for sharing among friends is our T-Bone pork chops, served with potatoes, and roasted vegetables, weighing in at one kilo it’s an impressive dish to behold!
For self-confessed red meat lovers, there’s also our Patagonian lamb shoulder to try – cooked for 18 hours and served with baked humita, seasonal vegetables and a flavourful jus, the slow cooking time makes the meat irresistibly succulent.
If you’re looking for something a little more vegetarian-friendly why not try our latest pasta creation. Made up of burrata cheese, smoked aubergine, roasted tomato, pistachio, and a sprinkling of black olive dust, the filling comes wrapped in a tortellini pasta shell – believe us when we say you’ll be back for more!
Closing the three-course meal with a bang is our decadent dessert, the Alfa Centauri choco-galaxy. Consisting of hazelnut ice cream, pistachio fudge, and an eclair served with a berry and Cinzano granite, it’s truly out of this world.
For those who fancy something a little lighter, but nevertheless packed full of flavour, give our take on a Galub Jamun a try. Made up of an Indian style sponge, homemade greek yoghurt, a confit of pear and spiced tea ice cream, the aromatic dessert is not to be missed.
Don’t forget to take a look inside our next door wineshop and tasting space Cava UCO. With plenty of different labels to choose from, feel free to pop in for a tasting or perhaps to purchase what you most enjoyed drinking with your dinner. All guests who stay with us in the adjacent Fierro Hotel will receive a complimentary tasting.
