Constancia - London Tanner Street

Stepping into an Argentine steakhouse... Luckily I was craving steak that week...

Surprisingly one of my uncles, from MummyGeek's side, and his family moved into London recently. They had lived in Plymouth for more than two decades and then decided to pack it all in and come to with live us for a fun life I guess. Heheheh. Probably Plymouth was too boring for them...

On this day I just started learning to drive, and I was practically scared to death. I may have a nice instructor but I think I'm going to be awful... After the lesson I went to Miss Pinky's to drown my sorrows...

And not far from where Miss Pinky and co. live is an Argentine steakhouse. It was my aunt's birthday that week - that's how we ended up there... Apparently my cousins work around where Miss Pinky lives - for nearly a year, and we didn't know... Woah. Close to home... We haven't seen my uncle and family for around 10 years. I think we were all too busy to talk and have a get together... And now I think we'll be seeing them more often... πŸ˜…

My youngest cousin of the two (who apparently dines at this place quite often) ordered for us all... Looks like he knows more about food than I do. Heheheh. Quite the meat eater. Five of us had the Parrillada but without the black pudding. And I took pictures as usual - thankfully my cousins didn't think I was a strange person! Phew! 

Mr Stingy seemed to have gone all vegetarian. He's a diabetic now. So low calories, low fat, no sugar diet for him. I must do the same... πŸ˜ͺ

Here's some grilled Italian cheese.

And here's my dinner plate... 😍

I had a rare steak! It was really rare... Sometimes restaurants cook rare and make it medium rare. Not in this case. I've grown accustomed to eating raw meat, but it was almost tough to cut through where the muscle and fat join together. Sausage was grilled nicely. Potatoes cooked nicely... Hmmm, this makes me want to find another steakhouse... There's actually one in East Street Market, maybe I should go and try it out. I was stuffed after this! 

Time for dessert... I had this lemon sorbet with sparkling white wine... Oooooh. I could feel the alcohol seeping through my blood. The elder-younger cousin also had one of these without the alcohol... Weren't sure if I should've just drunk the white wine out of the cup instead of spooning it. Heheh. πŸ˜…

Here's the other desserts... MummyGeek and Mr Stingy didn't have any... Nothing to offer for diabetics unfortunately...



Well, I think the total cost was over £200. My uncle and aunt paid. Hmmm, maybe we should meet once a year for this type of dining... we should pay our individual meals next time!

It's a nice place to go to, but we got quite a dark corner... I bet It'll be busy during Valentine's Day!

My geeky rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐🌟(4.5/5) - I can't find a half star πŸ˜…

Good points:
- Polite service
- Steaks were cooked on point
- Desserts were great... but no diabetic choices - apart from the cheese board.

Bad points: 
- A bit expensive
- I can't understand why it has to be dark inside...
