Barbacoa & Food Porn

Barbacoa, is an Argentinian method of preparing meat which entails the simultaneous steaming and smoking of the meat resulting in a moist, tender and succulant carnivorous experience.

Well God bless the Senor or Senorita who invented this process, because your taste buds have no choice but to have a fiesta in your mouth.
Recently I subcumbed to my first barbacoan tasting in the aptly named Seminyak based warung; Barbacoa. Oh what food porn!

Barbacoa’s decor depicts a sophisticated Latino South America that breathes an evening of cigars, cocktails and sultry secrets. Its a great place to take a current or potential lover, if the company’s bad, at least you can take comfort in the tucker. Or instead bring ten of your closest mates, it’s defiantly spacious enough to eat, drink and prey that the feast never ends.

I have to apologise to my vegan and vegetarian friends because I cracked and would dance with the devil everyday of my life to eat more of their speciality dish, the 8 hour wood fired local Suckling Pig, crackle and green chimichurri.

Nor am I apologising for my desert liason with Barbacoas chocolate chilli truffles. Again I’d be first up doing a tango with Lucifer for one more. I’m actually not much of a sweet tooth but like every dish in Barbacoas menu the flavours of a complete meal all readily fuse together like a culinary family.

Seriously it was a sweet, spicy, smokey, salty night and at the end I was spent . Now I’m reminiscing and there is nowhere I’d rather be tonight than gazing out at the full moon, overlooking the rice paddies and letting my taste buds indulge in a torrent love affair of Eva Peron proportions.
