Recommendation for Restaurante Brassa

We recently happened on a restaurant while searching for another. This one is named Brassa, a steak and seafood eatery of the finest kind. It’s only been open for the past 5-6 weeks. Though it is still lacking in décor and ambiance, the food is superior in quality, flavor, portion, presentation and the service is above the norm. Owner and chef, Pablo Rodas, trained internationally in Europe, Peru, Argentina among a few countries as well as at the Culinary College here in Cuenca.
The menu is extensive. Though one might think a bit pricy, it is worth the gastronomical investment.

I ordered Sea and Surf (translated to English). My steak was a melt in the mouth experience: tender and juicy, accompanied by two oversized langostinos that were grilled just perfectly, sprinkled with a couple of dozen shrimp and bathed in a sauce I couldn't identify nor could I leave a drop of it on my plate.

My husband ordered the BBQ pork ribs (of massive portion). Tender, juicy, meaty, cooked in a sauce to remember. One drawback: all entrées are served with crispy, thinly sliced potato chips that are very well done but hard to scoop up all that wonderful sauce and gravy with.

The address is: Brassa, Juan Iñiguez (1-30) y Remigio Cresco, Tel: 099 551 3800. Bon provecho.
