With festive menus traditionally awash with dishes such as roast turkey, Christmas Pudding, and mince pies, a Glasgow bar and restaurant is taking its diners to Latin America for Christmas.
El Santo, situated on Miller Street, in the Merchant City, specialises in cuisine from all over South America, including tempting and flavourful dishes from Brazil, Peru, Mexico, and Argentina.
With a Brazilian chef, Juliana Kipper, at the helm, who references her family’s rich food heritage in her varied and enticing menus, El Santo is guaranteed to please those looking for something a bit different this Christmas.
For £40 pp, the “White Christmas” menu is based on two people sharing. Kicking off with Prosecco on arrival, it offers three tapas-style starters, followed by a choice of two different tacos to share, with options such as pulled chicken, or spicy mushroom. There is then a meat or chicken dish to share. Cooked on the charcoal grill, options here include beef ribs, hot & spicy sausages and rump steak. Two side dishes make up the menu.
For £60 pp, there is the “Platinum Christmas” option, which gives diners four tapas-style starters to share, and also includes dessert – a delicious “postre” of Latin American desserts, with condensed milk flan, tapioca cheese bread with guava jam, and churros complete with chocolate sauce. Paired wines can be added to either of these menus.
“If you are looking for something out of the ordinary which is still indulgent, colourful, and full of flavour and spirit, then try our amazing Latin American cuisine for your Christmas get-together this year – it’s ideal for sharing too,” said Panos Dimou, General Manager at El Santo.
