I really was hoping for more from this place. The first encounter was not good... went in, and being an avid foodie, jockeyed for position and waited to order. Noticed the menu was very similar to La Cuchara and was hopeful for some good food. Made eye contact more than once with servers but no go ! I was hard to miss at the bar after a bit but still nada! Left after 20 minutes disappointed. Even on a busy night you can at least get a glass of wine after 20 mins at any other place. too bad ! Moved on and had good food somewhere else. Asked my hosts in SS about Borda Berri and they said it was a good place...the person who runs it had worked for La Cuchara and copied most of thier menu with them in the new place they opened... so that explained the near duplicate menu.
I know staff and circumstances can vary so wanted to give them one more try. I went the next day and the fellow working (in picture) was great ! Very friendly...yes, it wasnt as busy but many of my fav places in SS have good service, busy or not... so was nice to have good service on second try. Tried the croquette of stewed meats... the organ meats were very strong... i found the sauce did not compliment it as nice... it was over powered. Of course I had to try the ear... the pigs ears in SS were a surprise and def wanted to compare between places. IMHO these guys dont have the edge.
The place is decorated nice, they have dotted all the I's and crossed the T's but.......
With that being said...the food was still good... not outstanding tho...and many places are in SS.
I def will go back next year to give them another try tho.... but wont be my first stop for pigs ears, fois gras, etc.
