A new challenger on the block, this Argentine restaurant has sprung up in the relatively recent Ponsonby Central district. Literally a gourmet BBQ on the wall, the small number of tables and bar stools scattered around makes for an intimate affair.
With discected animals and hunks of meat for the cooking directly in front of you, El Sizzling Chorizo is a visceral affair – a pile of meat is served up on wooden chopping blocks, with a range of options including ribs, chicken and steaks (amongst others).
With our KISS policy (keep it simple stupid) we recommend the sirloin steak with a side – anything else just gets too complicated. Sides are a good mix, and the South American wines make for a bit of adventurous drinking.
