My visit to Boca was due to another work lunch exploration with some colleagues.
Two friends had dined here the day before and we decided that we wanted a piece of the action.
I ordered a regular (non-spicy) Choripan Roll with chimmichurri dressing -a mixture of “garlic, parsley, red chili, oregano vinegar and olive oil.” I also ordered a side of fries with garlic, parsley and vinegar dressing. One friend ordered the same while the other ordered a Ropa Vieja Roll which consisted of “pulled char grilled pork and lamb, braised in a sweet-sour capsicum and tomato stock.” All the rolls were only $5 at lunch time and the fries were an extra $2- great value!
Boca is styled as a take-away cart restaurant where you order on the street through a little window and then sit on small tables outside. On this occasion, due to the wind, we were allowed to sit inside at the bench on some bar stools. This gave us a good view of the staff cooking the food at the wood-fire grills and preparing the fries.
We received our food within about 2-3 minutes.
The roll, although small, is quite filling due to the large sausage and filling inside. The chorizo was crispy on the outside and was perfectly matched with the slightly spicy, oily chimmichurri. The fries were crunchy and well seasoned and the addition of herbs added some extra flavour to an otherwise common side. I absolutely loved my meal and would like to return again to try the Empanadas, Lomito Roll and Pollo Roll.
