I returned again to de Boca to try some of their other tasty offerings.
My friend, a Spanish speaker, chatted to the friendly staff and we were very pleased with the service there.
Although small and not very fancy, de Boca is popular among locals and the office crowd. We had to wait about 5-10 minutes for our food, but only because there were a few orders before us.
This time around I ordered the Lomito Roll ($5.00) -char grilled rump steak slices tossed in a garlic, parsley dresssing with aioli. The steak was cooked to perfection, pink on the inside and charred on the outside. It was tender and juicy, full of flavour and absolutely perfect with the green tangy sauce.
I also ordered some Tapioca chips with paprika seasoning ($3.00). While there was only a small serving of these large, stringy chips, it was more than enough for me as I didn’t really like the somewhat bitter flavour of the chips. The paprika seasoning didn’t do much for it either and I would have preferred some salt on it as well. My Spanish-speaking friend said one of the staff members told her they would put salt on it for us next time we came around.
Overall, a delicious and filling lunch which I really enjoyed.
