Parrilla’s are the McDonalds of Buenos Aires.
You can find one on every block, they’re loaded with protein and carbs and leave you feeling disgustingly satisfied.
Parrilla el 22 was brought to my attention from a good friend declaring it’s one of the more authentic parrillas in town full of locals and serving up mean provoletas and giant portions of flan drenched in dulce de leche.
My experience on a sunny afternoon was memorable enough to want me going back for my weekly clogging of the arteries fix. Damn you, Miriam!!
Francisco and I ordered between the two of us-
Provoleta, a giant round chunk of hard provolone throw on the grill aka parrilla and drizzled with olive oil & oregano and served with fresh bread with a trio of condiments- house made chimchurri, salsa crudo, & butter.
Choripan aka juicy salty pork sausage butterflied and grilled served w/ simple white bread.
Many choripan stands have a variety of salsas to accompany your sandwich. I opted for the classic chimichurri.
Papas a la provenzal, french fries covered in lightly sautéed garlic, parsley, & olive oil.
And lets not forget the flan with dulce de leche and fresh cream.
Needless to say I walked home at a slow pace after these huge portions and a liter of beer. But what a great way to spend a Sunday!! All of this for a measly 80 pesos (20 U.S. for 2 people), outside seating and half way decent Argentine service. I will definitely be back regardless of what my body is telling me.
