Hey everyone! I'm very happy right now... because I just got back from an Argentinean restaurant that was beyond delicious. It's called Libertador Parrilla Argentina, and it's located between 88th and 89th street in Second Avenue, at the Upper East Side.
Talking about Argentinean food automatically makes me think of meat... great meat. I have to say I was pretty skeptical about it, because how on Earth would they get the meat to taste like it does in Argentina? Well, maybe their cows like traveling because the "parrillada" was amazing!
The meal you see above is "parrillada" for two (it also comes with home made fries and chicken.) However, it's more than enough for three people sharing... unless you eat as much as I do, then one will do just fine.
Parrillada is basically grilled meat. What's particular about it is the parts of the meat they cut, the way they serve it (on a burning grill,) and obviously the quality of the cows. They do have pretty cows down there.
I know you might think the main courses would fill your stomach... But trust me, there's always room for dessert, and even more if it includes dulce de leche. Our deserts were pancakes (with dulce de leche,) flan / creme caramel (with dulce de leche) and chocolate mouse (without dulce de leche.)
