Lomito Lunch Special

By | Events | No Comments

Lomito Lunch Special at San Telmo!

The lomito sandwich. In Turkey they have a kebab; in the US it’s a burger! In Argentina, we have the lomito. It’s a lunchtime staple and a classic! Every Monday for lunch starting you can grab a tasty lomito and one of our famous empanadas only $25!


When it comes to fast food, a lomito is one of the most classic Argentine sandwiches on offer. A classic lomito generally includes lettuce and tomato; some places get adventurous and add a friend egg on top! Ours features perfectly cooked slices of O’Connors premium beef and our favourite condiment chimmichurri! Steak is our pride and joy here at San Telmo and we are so excited to present another authentic Argentinian dish that features it!

Lomito Steak Sandwich San Telmo

The lomito is not for the faint hearted. But for a population that were given beef ribs when they were teething and have spent the rest of their lives eating meat (at least once a day), it’s no problem. The Argentine people seem to have a metabolism designed for lomito. Indeed, to them, it’s just a snack. But it’s also a comfort food and, in some cases, a passion – there’s even a Facebook page dedicated to this culinary masterpiece!

The lomito is the king of the fast food snacks. It sits above the choripán (spicy hot dog) and morcipán (a black pudding sausage in a bun) both in price and stature. It says “Friday”; it says, “what the hell, life is good, I’m having a lomito”.

Monday lunches have never been easier with our Lomito Lunch Special! Perfect for a light business lunch or maybe just a quick and easy bite at the bar! With the Lomito Lunch Special, our Sunday Roast Special, and all of our fantastic year round events you always have a good excuse to dine at San Telmo!


(Lunch special runs Monday’s from 12 – 4pm, no modifications)

O’Connors Premium Beef

For three generations the O’Connor family has been sourcing the finest quality beef from South Gippsland, grazing on what is undeniably Australia’s most prized environment for producing premium beef.

Entirely free range cattle, they are raised on a natural diet of Gippsland’s pure pastures, without any artificial growth hormones, and tested free of antibiotics and chemicals. They are the best Angus and Hereford cattle breeds, flourishing in the crisp fresh air, pristine water and nutrient rich pastures.

After selecting only the very best of these steers, they are then hand graded for colour and marbling to ensure they are providing the utmost in tenderness, texture and taste.

This grading ensures a premium category the majority of which is sold to the highest bidder in Japan, however we have managed to ensure Melbournian’s still have access to the worlds best beef which is grown in our own backyard.

Each of these premium cuts are finally dry aged on the bone for a minimum of 4 weeks. This traditional butchers practice further enhances the tenderness and brings out the full flavour of this very special beef.



Sevens Creek Wagyu

Seven’s Creek Wagyu

The Sevens Creek Wagyu brand was inspired in 2006 by Christine McGregor with the vision to produce high quality genetics for the international Asian market. After teaming up with her son James Dainton in 2012 to form a family alliance the Sevens Creek Wagyu beef brand was born.

Evolving from purely genetics based farming to now including producing ‘true blue’ premium Wagyu beef; and when we say premium we mean Marble score 9 Wagyu which you can find in prestigious Melbourne restaurants.

It was the initial genetics goals that layed down the foundations for the high end beef that we produce today, as without the original Japanese blood lines the beef could not achieve the premium balanced quality it is today.
