Whether you’re following a Keto or Paleo diet for nutritional, medical, or weight loss reasons, eating out while adhering to strict diet guidelines is challenging to say the least. But we’re proud to let you know that Puerto La Boca, a vibrant Argentinian restaurant in Little Italy, is Keto-friendly, Paleo-friendly, and extremely friendly to your taste buds. Here’s a brief glimpse at the 8 best low-carb food options at Puerto La Boca:
Starters & Salads
Champignones a la Provenzal
You can easily decline the basket of bread when these sumptuous little shrooms arrive sliced, sautéed in white wine and garlic, and brightened with a touch of lemon.
Prepare your palette for the entrée meats with a delicious meaty appetizer. This classic Argentinian sausage features a savory blend of beef, pork, and South American spices.
Nearly every salad on the menu is low-carb friendly, but the Quinquela salad is refreshingly hearty. Starting with mixed greens, tomatoes, hearts of palm, carrots, and onions, we add creamy avocado and protein-rich hard boiled eggs—so filling it could be a meal on its own.
Salmon a la Provenzal
Fish is not only both Keto and Paleo-friendly, but it’s also full of rich omega-3 fatty acids that are known to promote brain function. This salmon dish is grilled then sautéed in olive oil, garlic, parsley and white wine, and served with seasonal vegetables.
Pechuga de Pollo
Grilled chicken breast is a tried-and-true staple of almost any diet, and we jazz it up with two options: “Al Champignon,” with mushrooms and white wine sauce, or Al la Provenzal, with olive oil, butter, garlic, parsley and white wine sauce.
Argentina is known for its delectable steaks, so of course this legendary 12-ounce sirloin center cut is grilled to perfection. Most of our steaks are served with a choice of fries, mashed potatoes, or rice, but you can substitute with steamed vegetables to keep it low-carb.
Picaña “al Roquefort”
The Keto diet includes dairy within its guidelines, so splurge with 12 ounces of Northern Argentina’s favorite culotte cut, which we grill, slice, and smother with a Roquefort cream cheese sauce and three tiger shrimp.
