Since 2014, Salento Steakhouse Jacksonville FL has been serving the residents of Jacksonville, Florida with delicious Colombian cuisine. They serve authentic Colombian steak together with a wide variety of other Colombian dishes that are seldom replicated outside Colombia. Located in Old St. Augustine Road, Salento has consistently praised not only for their dishes but their attention to detail when it comes to their establishment. Aged wood and seating contribute to the overall atmosphere of a rustic Colombian cabin deep in the jungle. Low lighting creates an air of intimacy, making diners recall family meals served in the comfort of grandma’s home. The plating style they employ is unassumingly simple, minimal in garnish so diners focus solely on the dish itself. With their excellent service and accommodating staff, Salento Steakhouse has amassed a significant following of loyal diners. In essence, these customers have become an extended member of their family, coming back for the homey ambiance as much as the excellent food.
Deep in the heart of a strip mall, only the determined ventures in sits Salento Steakhouse, steadfast and restrained against the cacophony of daily mall activities. Upon entering, customers are greeted with a warm smile from the staff, like a family member returning home from a day’s work outside. Drinks are served in a pitcher so customers can pour their own glass as they peruse the menu. All dishes are well-organized and described clearly. Popular appetizers include fried yellow potatoes; sweet plantains served with cheese, green plantains with hogao, fried cassava, and deep-fried pork rind. And from their grill are rib-eye steak, churrasco colombiano (N.Y. strip butterfly cut), flat steak, and 12 oz. T-bone. A crowd favorite is their lamb chops, shrimp on garlic sauce, and tilapia filet that’s bathed in lemon juice and melted butter.
The one dish that really seals the deal for a truly authentic Colombian gastronomic experience is their selection of Arepas, a staple in Colombian diet that’s made from ground corn. This is eaten daily and usually with cheese, fermented milk, or avocado. At Salento, they serve it with cheese, Hawaiian style (with ham, pineapple, and cheese), or with chicken or beef together with cheese and avocado. They can also be eaten with pork rind or with chorizo. Arepas’ recent popularity in the Jacksonville area has been greatly boosted by Salento’s excellent recipe and creativeness.
