There are two thing that I just flat out love in a dining experience: BYOBs and steak. So it should be no surprise to those of you who have been there that I LOVE Tango Sur. For those of you who have not been there – stop reading now and go. I’m not kidding.
There are few places in Chicago where you can get huge portions of exceptional cuisine and indulge in a bottle or two of wine without breaking the bank. Tango Sur is one of them. Bring your own favorite bottle of wine, whiskey, vodka, tequila, or whatever spirit you most gravitate towards and get ready for an amazing culinary experience. I’ve tried the majority of their menu, so I could tell you all about it but that would take too long. Instead, I’ll just tell you what I usually order:
Empanadas and Provoleta – Amazing, amazing, you must indulge.
El Filet – I get this almost every time. You could easily split it because it’s huge. Every steak is great, I just happen to like filets. I must note though that ‘El Pez’ (Chilean salmon) is also delicious.
I know, I only named four things. But you have to understand that the portions are so big that there is not really room for anything else in one sitting! If you want to know more about the menu, you have to check it out. I’ve never met anyone who left disappointed. *Word to the wise, prepare to wait. It’s mostly walk-ins only. They only take reservations for large parties and even then it’s tough unless you make your reservation well in advance. Enjoy!
