Dinner at La Torrada

As I’m reviewing the latest, “Best Fine Dining” in Monterrey on TripAdvisor, I see a restaurant Sr. Elizondo and I haven’t been to.

La Torrada is in the top 10 for best restaurants and currently number one for steakhouses. This is saying alot since Monterrey is known for having excellent carne.

We arrive and realize we’ve passed this restaurant probably 1,000 times. The inside is nice, but it’s the service that is beyond outstanding.

We start off with an artichoke appetizer with a lemon vinegar dressing and bread. Delish.

Next up is the carne. Take a look. The portions were generous.

We opted for the rib eye which seemed to be the popular choice. The rib eye gets a thumbs up.

However, I’m a filet mignon gal and will be forever.

The carne was cooked perfectly and the side dish was Mac and cheese. The Mac and cheese was marginal. I probably would not order this again.

Since we were eating so heavy, we couldn’t skip dessert. I chose the banana pie, but then this chocolate cake passed by and I changed my request on the spot.

Sr. Elizondo ate the popcorn and I ate the cake. It was as decadent as it looks.

Along with all this food, we drank beers and wine. This is how we looked when we arrived home.

My final thought was it’s a good steakhouse, service is excellent, but a on the expensive side. Prices are similar to the more upscale dining experiences in Monterrey.
