   Buen Ayre
O glorious cow, O bounteous bovine. O splendiferous ungulate. How I love thee. How I wish you could be cut into sirloin, rib-eye and fillet, served on a hot grill with sausage, black pudding and divine grilled provolone cheese after being lovingly broiled in an Argentinian asado (grill) by John Patrick Rattagan, Hackney's favourite Irish-Argentinian chef (there might not be much competition, but it's still an accolade of sorts). Meat-lovers will find all this and more at Hackney's Buen Ayre, the Argentinian ambassador's favourite steak house and home to Hix and Hawksmoor quality steaks at a fraction of the price (you should get change from a fifty for a dinner for two). Yes it's in Broadway Market (which though lovely is far from a Tube and filled to the rafters with annoying trendy types). Yes the service is awkward and occasionally sullen. Ok, I admit the side dishes (other than the chips) are pretty rubbish. But who cares? Order one of the many South American beers, sit back, and prepare yourself for carnivorous heaven. Oh, and book in advance it can be hard to get a table on weekends.
