La Esquina Parrilla (no name)

Sucre y Miñones, Belgrano, Buenos Aires

Nothing heals my other half’s scarred experience better than a good cold beer, huddling around with other meat lovers and devouring one or two juicy sandwiches standing up.

Restaurant Critic: This place started as a vegetable stand (read their facebook group) grilling up some meat on the side for friends, after much buzz and demand, they turned their vegetarian enterprise into a carnivore lovers’ paradise – a parrilla. This corner space is small, always cramped, scattered tables inside, and a line out the door just for a taste of their vacio super. Tell the woman the orders, get a small paper and number, wait until your number is called and voila- a warm goodness in your hand.

Food Critic: Our friend who lives just next door gestures to his vacio super as he motions to me, “I’m in love every time I come here, each bite of this.!@#$$.heaven.” As he was saying this, I took a bite of my crispy charred molleja sandwich and nod my head in agreement as I stuff another bite into my mouth. The best hands down. They also sell various cuts of meat; their chicken leg was very good. 7 pesos ($1.75) for choripan, 15 pesos ($3) for other cuts of meat sandwiches. Very cheap.


  • sandwiches: choripan (the best we had so far), vacio and mm molleja
  • love the environment: everyone huddling around for a bite of good meat
  • options for a sit down meal with cuts of meat and salads etc


  • the long tortured wait
