So I found myself in Houston for business and having a quiet night off for a change, located Saldivia's right around the corner from my hotel. I like South American food and wine, especially the wine, so I thought I would have a nice quiet dinner to myself. Looking over the wine list I saw a great selection of wines from Argentina and Chili as well as a grape from Uruguay, "Tannat" that I had never heard of. I questioned Gus about this wine and he explained that it is similar to a Spanish or Italian wine and that it is more of an old world style rather than the new world style you expect to see from South America. I ordered a bottle of Tannat and a spinach and cheese empanada for starters. My main dish was the Asado with grilled vegetables. I enjoyed a nice dinner with a great new bottle of wine and it was all excellent. The steak and grilled veggies were done perfectly and well seasoned. The wine was a nice complement to the dinner and left me with a new found treasure. This is a wonderful and personable place. They truly care about their customers and believe that the meal should be an experience for all the senses. Don't miss Salvidia's if you have the chance.
