LOOKING to spice things up a bit this Christmas with friends and family? Then why not say adios to the festive rule book and put some real South American flair into the spirit of Christmas.
Buenos Aires-inspired steakhouse, Cau, has it neatly wrapped up with their all-new festively charged Christmas party menu, available for parties of eight or more.
Do Christmas differently and feast your eyes on crispy lamb croquettes with caper and herb mayo for starters or Malamado glazed pork cheeks served with spiced chutney.
If steak is not your thing, opt for the Quince glazed brick-grilled spatchcock chicken topped with cranberry and pomegranate chimichurri or the vegetarian Winter Pumpkin risotto with roasted chestnuts and sage.
As for the beef, well, Cau invite you top join The Ultimate Xmas Meat-Up.
Sourced from free-range, grass feed Aberdeen Angus cattle straight from the Pampas, all bred with the highest welfare standards and aged for minimum of 30-days to produce the richest flavour and tenderness.
Take your pick of Tapa de Cuadril, cut from the top of the rump. This signature dish is served the Brazilian way, thinly sliced and flash grilled to melt in your mouth
Or try the rump, the leanest cut with a distinctively pure flavour. Grilled slowly to make the beef beautifully soft. Then there’s sirloin, the nation’s favourite cut, done the Cau way or rib-eye, the steak lover’s steak and a tender, luxuriously full-bodied treat.
Steaks are paired with sharing sides of braised winter red cabbage, peas and spinach and roasted new potatoes smothered in lemon and parsley butter.
Have a sweet-tooth, save room for Cau’s signature Mince Pie Empanadas washed down with a cup of warming Eggnog.
Alternatively indulge in Mulled Wine cheesecake served with syrup grapes or an equally sweet ending.
Best thing of all, however, is the price, enjoy two-courses for £24 or three-courses for £29, and don’t forget to check in with Santa Claus before you leave. Roll the table dice to reveal if you’ve been Naughty or Nice
