an un-assuming little niche in an iddylic Canarian town, we thought as we meandered through the little shanty town, we'd been staying all inclusive in a so-called 4* hotel and were craving something a little different so we dodged into El Braserito, what greeted us were walls daubed in cow print, instruments of trapping and slaughtering beast, diagrams of different cuts of beef and a thoroughly intoxicating smell of grilling meat!
we both went for the Argentinian Entrecote steak, salad and chips (not chips but sliced potatoes still in their skins and fried like chips) a glass of Rioja for me and a sparkling water for the Missus, bread was offered and although these were frozen part baked dinner rolls the homemade dipping oil served with it was exceptional, herby, chilli-y and garlicy, we didn't bother with starters, although a small choice was on offer including gambas, iberian ham and canarian cheese. which was just as well when the huge slab of char grilled beefiness arrived in front of us! it was well seasoned with sea salt flakes and freshly ground pepper and cooked with skill and affection, the meat was tender and flavousome. On a purely critical note though i felt that it could've been trimmed with the same skill and affection shown in the execution of the cooking! the salad was simple and fresh and they left the dipping oil at the table which i drenched my salad with!
we were both done in after this and didn't even look to see what was on offer for dessert.
a couple of beers and a vodka and lemon followed this and the total bill was 47 euros, this was presented along with two shots of Limoncello!
we were so impressed with the quality and of the service we returned the following two nights and ate the identical meal!
The menu is small and concise compared with other eateries with menus the size of company mailing lists!
would go back tomorrow!
