Review on Chimichurris
Chimichurris is a traditional Argentinean restaurant that was launched in January 2018 by the former head chef of Brindisa, Nicolas Modad and Federico Fugazza of Porteña, an Argentinian street food stall in Borough Market. Located on Southwark Bridge Road, it has a stripped back interior with wooden tables set with bench seating, industrial lighting and exposed ventilation ducts. The dining room seating 44 covers is overlooked by the open kitchen where the huge charcoal grill takes centre stage.
Start the ball rolling with starters such as picada de parilla, sweetbread, chorizo, black pudding and provenzal fries or milanesa with guarnición, traditional beef scallops. When it comes to main courses why not opt for a succulent rib eye steak from Argentina or from the sea there's grilled octopus with stuffed polenta, served with smoked paprika and salsa criolla. Desserts stay close to home witness Empanada de manzana, an Argentinean apple crumble style with vanilla ice cream or walnut pudding with dulce de leche foam.
A delightfully relaxed ambience serving excellent food from the parilla is paired with Argentinian and Uruguayan wines, together with Quilmes and Buenos Ayres Argentinean lager.
