Join me on my culinary adventure here in the coolest little capital in the world, Wellington.
This time. I will take you to El Matador, Argentinian Restaurant, located in the hip Cuba Street, Wellington, New Zealand. I guess this place will be perfect to take your loved ones in special occasions or even for a lovely dinner out.
El Matador has long been famous for its Argentinian grill, as it is a cafe, Asador Grill and Bar. Obviously, since Argentinian food is pretty much dominated by the grilled meat, this place is famous for its steak.
You can definitely have others as well like burgers, lamb chops, venison, prawns, fish, squid, octopus, mussels and more.
As for the drinks, they have various choices ranging from the alcoholic and non-alcoholic ones, including tea and some hot drinks.
Want to peep on the menu? Here you go!
And the ambience is also lovely! I really love its industrial settings with 'old world' touch and big, rustic posters and prints. I really enjoy it.
When we came here, we ordered their famous smoked lamb loin, fugazzeta rellena (which is packed with cheese like we love it!), as well as the steak and burger. I have to say the beef is delicious as well as the fresh salad and fries. Everything blends well in colorful plates that we have.
Let's check out some photos I took during my dinner in this lovely place.

I have to say that we really love this place. The food is incredible, the ambience is fun, the plating is lovely and everything is just so enjoyable. Come and visit this place if you happen to be in the city.
Join us in (almost) Wordless Wednesday and have fun with the linky party.
