On Saturday night, as part of our visit to Lisburn, we’d booked dinner at Del Toro Steak House and Urban Grill on Antrim Street. I’d had a sneaky look at the menu online beforehand so couldn’t wait to try the 28 day aged steak for myself!
We arrived about 8.30pm and the place was really busy- no doubt reflective of the tasty food which was to come. The place has a distinctive character, nicely lit up with lanterns dotted around the restaurant.
So, it was time for dinner. For starters I choose the warm chilli beef nachos, served with cheese, guacamole and sour cream. The chilli had a good spice to it- a nice kick, but not too overpowering. Mum went for one of the day’s special, Sticky BBQ pulled pork springroll. There were three large springrolls served with a Cashel Blue mayo and were just bursting with flavour. She savoured every bite!
For mains I went for one of the famous steaks- 12oz Sirloin served with Garlic cubes. No sauce was needed as an accompaniment, and you can tell steak is one of the restaurant’s specialties. Mum picked the Grilled Irish hake, which is served with potato terrine, smoked bacon and fine beans. Again, excellent remarks from her about the brilliant, complimentary flavours.
There was no room for dessert but we left fully satisfied. Not one bit of food was left on the plate and we will definitely be back soon!
