The La Boca Bar and Grill have been trialling their Argentinian High Tea each month on a Sunday afternoon.

I can guarantee for the next few paragraphs I will be overusing the word MOIST…because the dishes were just that and the High Tea was delicious with some outstanding flavour combinations!

We started with the savoury Empanadas. The pastry was buttery and melted in your mouth with fillings including beef, corn, ham and cheese. They came with a Chimichurri dipping sauce, which really is an Argentinian Pesto and was nice too.

The Argentinian Scones were more like an American biscuit, but they were soft and delicious inside and had a hint of honey in them. We used the jelly to put on them with the cream. The jelly was served in thin slices with amazing flavour combinations including pumpkin + almond and sweet potato + coconut.

The sweet elements were moist, tasty and stirred up major excitement in our tastebuds! Churros with caramel sauce were added to our menu today and were so fresh.

The Turron or the Argentinian Nougat was so soft and moist. It was heaven in our mouths! The Mantecol or the Brownie was the same with the flavours of caramel and peanut butter oozing through this amazing sweet treat.

Everything is made fresh on site by Chef Nicolas Arriola. He should be very proud of his heritage and bringing it to the people of South Australia. $39 is a more than reasonable price point. You will leave the La Boca Bar and Grill Argentinian High Tea feeling very satisfied and full!

Angie got her passion for high tea, in particular scones from her Nanna. She would stay at her house regularly and they would bake scones, pasties and cakes for hours. Angie’s scones are quite popular amongst her friends. She says they need to be traditionally made though – kneading the butter and making a well for the milk! Not cream and lemonade thank you! She is a self-confessed tea snob and loves a great quality tea. She says it’s lovely, soothing and there’s nothing like a pretty tea cup.
