Parrilla Marucha

I can already hear my condemnation if I ever get a heart attack from the overdose of meat…”To have sinned under the names of sloth and greed, and the itch to conquer all parrillas in the city of BA, you shall be condemned to a lifetime diet of carrots and lettuce. ” Alas, I still can’t seem to stop. Yes, Lo de Paka is still the parrilla of my life, but the drool can never be contained whenever my eyes settle on any place that serves a mean sweetbread- and on top of that this place got nominated in Guia Oleo as the best parrilla of the year. You know me. Got to blow past the feeling of cheating on the parrilla of my life and just have one taste of those sweet breads- that taste that still lingers as I’m writing. 

Restaurant Critic

The location is off the tourist map, a few steps away from Belgrano, and a breath away from cramped tourists near China town. The place where if one comes early enough, the whole floor and service could be dedicated just to you. This place is the opposite of dark, romantic and smokey; the space is lofty and bright, with the television playing in the background, some futbol jerseys hanging on the wall, and the service that reminds you of a neighbourhood kitchen. The clientele is mostly families, old boys club, locals, and meat-lovers like me. A place to enjoy a downtime of good meat with friends or family.

Food Critic

They have one kind of empanada (baked or fried); who really minds the limited options when the thin exterior was fried perfectly, with hearty juicy chunks of carne that spills generously onto the plate. The chorizo was extra charred contributing to a crispy bite which then continues with flavours that makes one’s eyes close and do a lot of nodding. The mollejas. Ah, yes the reason I came. The waiter prior to this had asked if we wanted it grilled in whole or cut in half, though suggested that he liked it in whole, and promised to send us another one cut in half if we didn’t enjoy it. We enjoyed it wholeheartedly, and when I say ‘we’, it includes my other half- the guy that never bothers with sweet breads, or more so makes faces at it each time I consumed the dish all by myself. Everything else was impeccable: the juicy flavourful slab of chorizo, the perfect crunch of papas fritas, and the service that repeatedly came back to check on us, making sure we were sated and happy. The bill? A tad more expensive than Lo de Paka, about 220 pesos ($60): includes 2 empanadas, chorizo, sweetbreads, a meat to share, crisps, and tip (not wine).

Pros

  • perfect execution of the overall meal: everything was simply delicious, even perfecting the french fries
  • highlight: sweetbreads and the charred chorizo
  • great delicious meat, in the same line as Lo de Paka
  • local environment
  • family service

Cons

  • the simple ambiance
