My sister opted for their two course lunch special which came with an entree, main with sides for $25 inclusive of a drink. This was very much the way to go in terms of value for money and ensuring you get a smattering of dishes to try. Kiddo and I being "sometimes pescatarians" couldn't opt for the $25 special as the choices within that were very meat-centric. So instead, Kiddo and I ordered a couple of dishes to share tapas style. It ended up roughly $25 each.
We started with some comp bread which were so cute and warm in their toasty linen basket.
Her salad was a beetroot salad with a few zingy bits of cress, soft cheese and toasted pine nuts.
Kiddo got things started with a very very very creamy cauliflower soup. It was generously blanketed with truffle shavings. OMG. I was hovering around like a sea gull whilst she daintily sipped it, waiting to catch a crumb of truffle. It was a very rich soup and guaranteed to fill you up.
My sister's main dish was a slow cooked beef cheek. She reported it was melt-in-the-mouth.
Instead of wine with her lunch special, my sister opted for a cup of tea.
Verdict: We loved it.
The Independent was a great serendipitous find. It was well executed food with friendly staff. Argentinian flavours are a pleasant change from the usual cafe style fare for lunch. We would definitely be back for more.
