Parrillada – Buenos Aires, Argentina

Ok this is it, its over!

What did Argentina teach me. Meat!

Huge amounts of meat! Some so so. But normally amazing.

We made it to the bottom, and now we are in Buenos Aires with a few days to waste before heading on back to Australia.

To top off the meat odyssey that is a trip around Argentina, we decided to go find a proper parrillada.

And we got it.

A parrillada is just a BBQ by translation (i think).

Here you get a bit of everything. Steak, Ribs, Blood, Heart and some tube shaped meat macaroni (something you don’t find on the menu too much in Australia)

We ate it all! Ok except all the heart. The heart was nowhere near as good as the stuff i ate on the streets of Cuzco.

Also the tube meat had some sort of white pasty stuff in it very bizarre.

We went for a walk down to La Boca. While there we were drawn into a little courtyard by cooking……..meat. Some locals had set up a grill just inside there share courtyard and we proceeded to buy some tasty sausage off them.

The funniest part of this was seeing all the tourist bus loads of people walk past, quickly double back to take a photo, but not come in just in case they were going to get mugged or something. Oh yeah La Boca was supposed to be the poor gang area. Didn’t seem too dangerous as we walked through the whole suburb to get there. Oh well. Probably just tour guides trying to make the place a bit more exciting.

Well 7 months done and im off home. Ill get back to trying to find the best Pho in Brisbane and generally saving for my next world wide eating trip. Where next…..???
