A new Argentinean restaurant opened in David a few months ago. I was there around lunchtime today, so I stopped in. It is much larger than you would expect if you were driving by. I think I counted at least 24 tables for four persons. When I got there, there was only one person eating. When I left. At least a third of the tables was full.
At lunch time they serve a buffet. I am not sure how they price it, since I didn’t see any price listed. I guess, if you go often enough, you just know.
I thought the buffet area presented all of its food well.
In this area they have a large brick oven and obviously sell pizzas as well. They were in the process of baking loves of bread when I was there.
I chose a chicken parmigiana. My plate, as it is pictured below, was $5.00. I thought that what I chose was very favorable and I was pleased with it.
I was curious, if they used the buffet at night, so I asked the young lady at the register. She said they had an evening menu. I asked if I could see one.
I sat at my table and looked through it. It included pizzas, pastas, calzones, and a large selection of meat dishes. I was going to take some photos of the menu, but the young lady from the register ran up and said, “You can’t take photos of the menus”. I told her I wanted to put it with my post on the Internet, so people would have an idea what they offered. Again she said, “You can’t take photos of the menu”. I asked if I could take her photo and she said, “NO!”, grabbed the menu and returned to the cash register. I assume since she was in charge of the money, I must have just talked to management. Her English was perfect. I guess she didn’t speak in Spanish, because she wanted to be sure she got her point across.
I was disappointed in management’s decision to prevent my taking photos of the menu. I have a hard time understanding the thinking behind it. If it were me, I would want people to know my offerings. Everyone always knows that a new restaurant’s menu is only valid for a short time.
None the less, she got what she asked for. I hope someone goes there at night and tries some of the beef dishes. I would like to know how their evening meals are. I would have considered going, but I think I will leave it to others to provide that review.
To get to the restaurant, it is on the street that goes by the IDAAN office. It is in the previous block. It is across the street from Artifactos de Baru. Watch for the sign in the following photo.
