Steak dinner with friends

On Saturday, our last night in Buenos Aires, Brian and the boys and I walked across Avenida 9 de Julio, the widest street in the world, and we saw the obelisk anchoring the street.

Walking around, we were jealous of (among other things) the quantity of flights to the US. In one week, American Airlines in Paraguay doesn’t offer the five flights that they offer daily from BA.

We walked past the Teatro Colón opera house.

For dinner we went to a famous steakhouse, Cabaña Las Lilas. We had dinner with another couple, friends from Asunción, who also happened to be on vacation in Buenos Aires.

As soon as we sat down, the waitstaff immediately provided ample coloring supplies, an assortment of warm and delicious rolls (which were continually refreshed) and a charcuterie platter – all complimentary.

Next they brought “globos” (balloons) for the kids and Malbec for the adults. The globos were complimentary but the Malbec was not.

For our entrées we all ordered a different type of steak, and no one was disappointed.

We had potatoes, creamed spinach and the most amazing cut of beef we’ve had in years. The beef arrived with little labels identifying the cut and how cooked the beef was. “Estoy jugoso” means “I’m medium rare.”

We really had a fun night with our friends, who didn’t even seem to mind the bit of screaming, throwing, disrobing, etc. from the kids!
