One of the many Argentine grills that seem to be all over Amsterdam and not really anywhere else (well, maybe Argentina?). With characteristic flair, we had a grill - steak and chips with a small bit of chicken. The food was pleasant, filling, and inoffensive - the best I could say would be nice. A bit chewy, but nice. Like when your mum or girlfriend does steak and chips to reward or anticipate some sort of tedious domestic chore.

The service however was downright peculiar - no cutlery (we found some eventually)- , and the (thankfully largely AWOL waiter) spent the little time he was there hinting in very very broad terms that a large tip was expected. I only hope that he was a relative filling in a on a quiet Sunday afternoon? Gormless. Cheeky. Chewy.
