With locations in Toluca Lake and Pasadena, Malbec Argentinean Cuisine showcases signature grilled meats and the award-winning Argentine wine that gives the restaurants their names. The Malbec salad is a meal in itself, with hearts of romaine, radicchio, frisée, goat cheese, avocado, cucumber, crostini and special house dressing. Appetizers include a choice of two empanadas, grilled veal sweetbreads, and the Costa Patagonia - flat-grilled shrimp and scallops, calamari and a Spanish pimentón-garlic sauce. The famous Argentinean Sausage Platter offers a selection of Argentinean chorizo, Spanish chorizo, morcilla, Argentinean sausage, cannellini bean salad and criolla rustica. Malbec proudly notes that their steaks are all-natural, hormone-free and wet-aged for 21 days. Choice cuts include a 14-ounce ribeye or New York steak, or the Tabla Mixta, which features two or more cuts that are sliced on a skillet and served family style. All steaks are served with the house Chimichurri Moderno, made with hot pepper, oregano, parsley, tomato, mint, shallots, cilantro and garlic.
