Birmingham’s Fiesta Del Asado has opened a second location, in Solihull. I was invited for a review dinner to check out the new site.
The new restaurant is chic and inviting, with a large bar in the centre, cosy booths and lots of greenery. The space is much more open and airy than the moodier vibe of the original restaurant.
The menu is similar to the original though, with steaks, fish dishes and vegetarian options.
We started with Padron Peppers (£4.49) and Gordal Olives (£3.49). The olives were salty and meaty, and the peppers were perfectly salted, and both dishes disappeared in short order.
I briefly considered one of the fish options, but couldn’t resist going for a steak. I went for the Vacio (£15.89), an 8oz Bavette steak, a Malbec Sauce (£1.89) and Spinach Crema (£3.29).
The steak was cooked to a perfect medium rare, and was tender and packed with flavour. The Malbec sauce was rich, pairing beautifully with the flavours of the meat. All the steak at Fiesta is prepared with expert attention, and served with exacting standards.
The spinach side was creamy and comforting, and a huge portion. I’d suggest choosing a couple of different sides to share!
I can never resist Churros, so I ordered some for desert. Loading with sugar and cinnamon, they were sweet with a gentle kick. The caramel sauce was plentiful too, which always makes me happy.
The new Fiesta Del Asado holds up to the original, with the same high standards of food and service. It’s a fantastic addition to Solihull, with a gorgeous bar for after work drinks and a menu of quality options for date night or family dinners.
I was a guest of Paul Fulford and Fiesta Del Asado. All food and drinks were complementary for the purpose of honest review.
