Porteno has renamed it's upstairs lounge "Gardel's Bar".
Gardel's Bar is named after Carlos Gardel, Argentina's famous tango singer.
There is a very distinct and welcoming smell of wood and coals burning on the barbeques from the homes and restaurants in Argentina. It is a smell that tells you dinner will be ready, maybe not anytime soon, but itâ€™s cooking. The owners of Bodega have bought their love of Argentina to Surry Hills with their restaurant Porteño.
Each morning two of each the suckling pigs and lambs are prepared in the a cross, set to cook over burning embers of ironbark wood until 6pm when the doors open for dinner.
Aside the Asador is the Parilla where a range of fish and meats are slowly cooked to order.
Dining at Porteño is like eating at home with your family and friends, food cooked slowly with love to be enjoyed with beautiful wine. It is the way we like to eat and want to share our experience with Sydney.
