Moo Cantina - Middlesex St
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
The orginal Cobb Street branch is tiny, so it’s not surprising that Moo! opened a second venue, in late 2012. Also located among the dog-eared backstreets of the Square Mile, it has 65 covers – hardly huge, but our experience suggests it’s about right for now. Although our food was excellent, the service was concerning – staff were seriously friendly but short on English. An appetiser of chorizo on ciabatta was taken to another level by a fabulous version of chimichurri sauce: buzzing with herbs, it was as silky and red as the inside of a steak. An empanada filled with zinging chunks of beef, egg and olive was a bargain at just over £2. The highlight was a fabulous portion of sweetbreads, tasting like slivers of tender chicken thigh and practically fizzing with lime. A ribeye was good though not mind-blowing, while a napolitana came as cheese-smothered breaded steak topped with a pleasingly tacky slice of tomato. Lomitos (sandwiches) with mainly meaty fillings, and steaks priced by the 100g are also available. Menu graphics are chain-like, furniture looks a little cheap and they offer mayo and ketchup – this is fun, Argentinian dining without the wallet-busting steak worship.
