Lucia Soria is a talented Argentinian chef working in her restaurant Jacinto in Montevideo, Uruguay.
Before opening her own restaurant in 2012, she used to work for the famous Argentinian chef, Francis Mallmann. It was he who brought her to Uruguay in the first place.
Now, she’s on her own at Jacinto, where she puts into practice her years of experience in order to offer to Uruguayans locavore food with a creative twist that they did not use to taste before.
Jacinto is located in the Cuidad Vieja in Montevideo; the restaurant is beautifully designed in an old historic building.
The lunch menu offers at least six starters, six main dishes and six or seven desserts depending on the day.
It is rare in Uruguayan restaurants, but it has to be noticed that Jacinto makes its own bread. Most of the ingredients and groceries are organic and locally produced and supplied. Her cooking is fresh, generous and delicious.
The wine list is dominated – and rightly so -- by local wines with a few selections from Argentina and Chile.
The service is kind and efficient for Uruguay which, we noticed, is generally very slow.
Jacinto is a good place to have lunch while you are in Montevideo, the restaurant is open from Monday to Saturday and closed on Sunday for lunch and dinner.
