La Pecora Nera
Ayaucho 1785, Recoleta, Buenos Aires 4804 2000
We skipped the appetizers, ignored the meat dishes, and dove into the wonders of pastas and risottos, slightly ignoring the basket of bread sprinkled with a suspicious white sugar crystal.
I love the decor of black curtains, dark woods, and delightful chandeliers. By the end of the night, this place was packed with good looking bunches of old and young: business men, and family get together.
The dishes arrived. The rich creamy risotto played a wonderful texture of heartiness and creaminess- generously filled with mushrooms. The sorrentinos were a wonder of fluffy delights, filled with crabmeat and sitting in a sauce that was unbearably delicious. It was so hard to share.
Dessert. One of the best interpretation of tiramisu. The apple strudel was just as amazing: the filling was organic, not too sweet at all, and just pure addiction.
Perfect for special occasion. Dress up, get a bunch of people, order right, and remember to share. Don’t dare to forget dessert. * About 500 pesos (for two) with a bottle of wine; or was it two bottles?
