La Cabrera Review

Palermo's best parrilla is on the quiet corner of Cabrera and Thames. Fun paraphernalia hangs everywhere, giving the feel of an old grocery store. La Cabrera is particularly known for its excellent provoleta de queso de cabra (grilled goat cheese) and its chinchulines de cordero (small lamb intestines). Try also the cuadril vuelta y vuelta (rare rump steak) and the mollejas (sweetbreads), which are also top-notch. The servings are abundant, as is the noise. What really sets it apart from other parrillas are the complimentary side dishes like pumpkin purée, eggplant salad, and others.

    La Cabrera Review

    I was wary about this place; I usually find that restaurants popular with tourists have lackadaisical service and boring food. However, one tourist spot that actually lives up to the hype! The beef is flavorful and the many side salads and dishes that automatically accompany your meal are amazing. We ordered a sausage appetizer, a salad, and one meat dish and were stuffed to the gills! We were happy to find that they didn't sacrifice quality for size; our meal was excellent. We had to bring half the sausage and the salad home because the portions were so large. The meal was also a bargain due to the US Dollar exchange rate; our bill (including wine and soft drinks) came out to around US $70. Service was a little bit on the inattentive side, but we forgave that due to the large crowd and great food. Definitely one not to miss.

    A steak adventure

    We only had 7 nights in BA and two evening we dined in La Cabrera. The steak was not only delicious, but you don't need to order anything with it. First they bring you fresh roasted garlic and delicious spreads for the bread, then several little side dishes come with the meat on a long wooden platter. It was an adventure trying all the side dishes. Make a reservation for 8:30 and enjoy! (there are two La Cabreras-original and north a few paces down the street)
