What a rare find, right in the heart of Kearny Mesa.

We did a light sampling of the menu this past Saturday night.

My friend and I both loved the calamari appetizer, with its frizzled capers which was served with the predictable but slightly off-center marinara and an unusual tartar sauce.

We dined on the Costillas con Chimichurri (short ribs with oil / garlic sauce) and the Vacio (organic prime beef loin, seasoned and simply grilled).

Both meat temps (med. rare) were perfect and quickly served alongside a succulent fresh vegetable garnish. The garlic mashed potatoes were all they promised to be, and very moist. My friend (a fry freak)ordered these rather than trying the oft-touted Argentine fries, as he was put off by the merchandising from our server who described them as, "topped with a white sauce". I bit, and was served gloriously crisp yet entirely pedestrian shoestring fries generously garnished with minced parsley and raw garlic which was far too strong for this application (as opposed to the Chimichurri sauce perfectly paired with the baguette set before us for bread service).

We were treated to live jazz (a wonderful presentation of standards with a distinctly Latin flavor) and the room gradually filled with regulars, greeted by the humbly courteous staff.

Portions and quality were well in line with menu pricing, and we left very satisfied. Do not deny yourself the opportunity to sample the food, service and charm of Pampas -- and soon.
