Cheap Eats Review

This Argentinian restaurant/bar from the team behind Bodega is rockabillying Sydney with its chic share-plate food. Inside it’s a montage of pincurls and pompadours, with a subtext of slow-cooked meat aromas wafting from the open roasting pit. There are two sittings each night, from 6pm and 9pm, and if you haven’t booked, arrive one to two hours early. The wait is a blessing. Do it in the upstairs bar over a shared cocktail carafe $45–$55 and chilli croquettes of corn and mahon cheese $10. Come dinner time, wood-fired suckling pig $44 or lamb $42 (serves 2–3) goes without saying. Accompany either (or both) with crispy fried Brussels sprouts, lentils and mint $14, then trump it with a Uruguayan-inspired pavlova — a tango of dulce de leche, salted peanuts, meringue and mango $14.
