This Lunch-Hour Bargain Will Fuel You On Past Midday
We never need asking twice when we get invited to BU! This particular visit was for their new three-course lunchtime offer that mixes business with pleasure.
As boring as it sounds, start with their guacamole – it’s one of the best examples in town. And our companion ordered the spicy papas bravas, the perfect complement to all those mouthfuls of cooling avocado.
The Pulpo Tiradito – elegantly cooked octopus trailing down a long, rectangular plate – came highly recommended, and with good reason. The more you chew, the more cheerful it makes you. Or maybe it was the fact that we were sat on a beautiful, breezy terrace in the middle of the work day?
Intersperse forkfuls of the citrus-y seafood salad and the sweet duck, papaya and passion fruit salad as you go along – it will really make your taste buds dance. As will the exotically coconut-heavy mahi-mahi we had as a main.
We were, however, bigger fans of the Hongos Quinotto, a hearty mushroom and truffle oil-laden risotto made with quinoa. It’s real vegetarian comfort food.
Then there’s the Dessert of the Day and for us, the unlikely pairing of warm mini churros with a smooth, rich pistachio sorbet made heading back to work that much harder.
We’re still in awe of the price tag, and we’ll be back here for many more middays.
