Lala's Argentine Grill - Not So LalaLand

Hmm... this one is not gonna be easy. Don't get me wrong, I totally like the whole concept, decor and the cool vibe of this Argentine restaurant. From the get-go, this place is definitely famous for their steak. Wide variety of the menus is also a plus but meat dominates the list. The food is not terribly bad, but unluckily, let's just say I had a bad piece of steak.

weird thing I prefer to eat this whole basket of bread and uber tasty dipping oil rather than the steak.

spinach-onion and ground beef-onion empanadas. definitely a kick-ass appetizer. the crust is very crunchy and fillings are all well seasoned and satisfying.

Entraña al Champignon. Grilled Certified Angus Beef skirt steak, topped with sautéed mushrooms in a light red wine cream sauce, and fries. the infamous steak really let me down. not only they tasted bland, this piece was a bad cut and hard to chew.

Costilla. grilled choice ribeye steak. still cannot believe that this place is raved for the steak, because this one is even worse than the champignon. bland was an understatement.

Panqueque de banana con dulce de leche. Warm caramel crepes and diced banana, with caramelized sugar on top. this one is a yummy dessert for those of you who wants of to get the sugar rush. after three bite of the sweet chunk, I think I'm high...
