Lentejas con Chorizo
at Casa Armas
Although I’d given serious consideration to attempting TEICA (Try Every Item at Casa Armas) (see most recently 6.045 Tortilla Española)–going so far as to design a table to chart progress–I’ve decided not to. The deciding factor was the tenderloin steak, which was crappy, bad enough once, but it appears on the menu several times in various forms, presumably to similar degrees of crappiness. Another major obstacle would’ve been the big ticket items (e.g., roast baby pig) that require a day’s advance order. Forget it.
I’ll be back for sure, but under no obligations.
The Lentejas con Chorizo was pretty good. A thick stew, rich pork accentuated by the smoky sausage, pairing quite nicely with the nutty lentils. With a few slices of bread, this would make a fine meal in itself. Best item that I’ve tried here thus far.
The steak was the worst.
