Sunday Asado Canapes

Sunday Asado At Casa Esquina: Sunday 30th June

Casa Esquina’s Sunday Asado is a delicious way to spend a winter’s weekend. Nestled on a charming Balmain corner, this restaurant offers a taste of South America with its open flame parrilla and vibrant atmosphere. The real star of the show, though, is the Asado itself. Held on the last Sunday of June, July and August, this special event transforms the courtyard into a fiery spectacle.

The Asado menu is a celebration of Argentinian flavours, featuring dishes like oysters with a refreshing citrus granita and octopus tiradito with a touch of yuzu. The main event is a feast for meat lovers – slow-cooked whole lamb and woodfire-grilled tomahawk steak are guaranteed to satisfy. Don’t worry, vegetarians aren’t forgotten – there’s a selection of seasonal vegetables and Argentinian sweet treats like humitas and sweet potato sopapillas to round out the meal. With previous Asado events selling out fast, be sure to book online well in advance.
