Parrilla Quilmes Restaurant Review

: It would be unfair to expect surprises at an Argentine restaurant, given that there are virtually none in that country’s cuisine. But the best of them do what they do very well indeed, and Parrilla Quilmes is among the best in Mexico City. At this Colonia Condesa outpost, decorated in basic wood and tile, the emphasis is on---what else?---beef, with the satisfyingly juicy Argentine cuts on the menu, including bife de chorizo (rump steak) and bife de lomo (sirloin tip). There is a mixed grill with various cuts of meat, and for the adventurous, another that also includes sweetbreads, blood sausage and chinchulines, the latter being Argentina’s version of chitlins. There are a few salads on the menu, and some nice pastas, particularly the ravioli and the gnocchi. In a city that is not exactly brimming with good pizza, Quilmes serves some of the best, topped with Argentine favorites like salami, onions and mushrooms. The wine list includes various reasonably priced Argentine selections, as well as others from Chile, Spain and Mexico.
