Beef is everywhere in Buenos Aires, but there are a few parrillas in town that stand above the rest for quality. Within that category, La Cabrera offers a unique experience. Yes, the focus is on the meat, but the sides almost steal the show—surprising vegetable dishes accompany each entrée, and in sharable portions. It’s typically packed with locals and tourists alike, so expect long waits any night of the week. That said, for those who can live with dinner earlier than Argentina’s customary 9 p.m. or later, La Cabrera offers an early seating they call “happy hour” that’s wait-free and includes a 40 percent discount on all menu items.
La Cabrera, situated in beautiful Palermo Viejo, will serve you the best steak of your life. Every meat-eating lover who goes to Argentina longs for this experience. Certainly order plenty of Mendoza Malbec for the table as you gorge on fancy sides and delicious steak 'till the wee hours of la mañaña.
