Don Julio Parrilla, Palermo Viejo, Buenos Aires

Beef is popular in Argentina but not all restaurants serve a good cut of meat. Don Julio Restaurant is one of the best steakhouses I’ve ever been to. The place doesn’t start to happen until 9 PM. There’s an upstairs area, a type of balcony where you can get a great view of the place. The restaurant is rustic with cart-wheel light fixtures, wood panels and cow skin placemats. The most popular thing on the menu is bife de chorizo (sirloin steak) and of course that’s what we ordered. The steak is a main corse in itself, any other side dishes have to be ordered separately. The steaks are huge and juicy and the meat is tender. We heard how great Argentinian wine is so we had to try some. Without knowing too much about wine, I’ve picked the malbec Aguijon de Abeja (Bee Sting) and I was really impressed. I really recommend this wine with red meats. After you’ve finished the bottle of wine you can sign it and ask one of the waiters to put it up on display along with the other many bottles decorating the restaurant’s walls. This was definitely a memorable meal.
