A vibrant new establishment, La Boca Bar and Grill has arrived in Brisbane. Combining authentic Argentinian grilling and cooking methods with local Queensland produce, La Boca invites diners to discover a unique dining experience exclusive to Brisbane’s food and culture enthusiasts.
“We are thrilled to bring the cuisine of Argentina to Brisbane,” says Head Chef, Andy. “Our goal is to celebrate Australian produce by blending it with the fires of Argentina. We have combined the classic Argentinian flavours with Brisbane’s favourite food choices, and I believe we have created something truly unique. Come to La Boca and experience the unique flavours while supporting Australian produce.”
Be spoilt for choice with classic Argentinian dishes in the lunch menu starting from $16 with meals such as the tasty, sweet corn and cheese empanadas, a dish that bursts with flavour, wrapped in a light, crispy pastry. Sink into the Choripan: a Parilla grilled Argentinian fresh chorizo hugged in chargrilled flatbread and topped with delicious Pico de Gallo salsa, spicy and sweet jalapeno aioli, with crunchy truffle fries.
The Parilla grilled $22 Express Lunch is the perfect menu for a busy lifestyle. Bring your colleagues along for a fast and reliable work lunch all the while basking by the Brisbane riverfront. The lunch menu provides diners with a quick choice of free-range chicken, lamb shoulder and a wagyu rump, which then allows you to select your sides and sauces from truffle fries, grilled pumpkin or ancient grain and spinach salsa, and other delights.
Diners may also venture into something different with the dinner menu, the seafood choices boast Argentinian flavours all the while combining it with Brisbane’s favourite ingredients such as Moreton Bay Bugs, Lobster, Red Emperor and Barramundi. However, it would not be a La Boca experience without the Asador – high-quality cuts of meat are carefully prepared and aged on-site. The slow cooking method over a wood fire produces tender and mouth-watering dishes such as the pork belly, dry-aged lamb shoulder, the wagyu shoulder blade, and grain-fed scotch fillet.
If you have a hard time choosing one dish, the Butcher’s Selection platter is the perfect dish on the menu for you and your companion. Indulge in the succulent free-range chicken, crispy pork belly, tender beef and lamb asado complemented with pork chorizo and salt bush lamb sausage.
The combination of the Argentinian cooking method on the fiery grills of the Parilla and Asador with Australian local produce creates something that is truly exclusive to La Boca Bar and Grill Brisbane. Open for lunch and dinner, La Boca is the perfect spot for a romantic meal by the Brisbane River or a casual night out with friends. Diners can make a reservation online at brisbane.laboca.com.au.
