De Un Rincon de la Boca: Popular With the Locals
This 'parrillada' restaurant became our favourite 'hang-out' in Mendoza, starting from our first night in town after the long flights from Iguazu to Buenos Aires and then onward to Mendoza. I walked the couple of blocks from our hotel to simply pick up a few quick 'empanada' snacks that night, fresh out of the oven (see my Local Customs tips).
We returned here for lunch the next day and even for a relaxing sit-down to simply enjoy some drinks on our final day in Mendoza. It is not fancy, but it serves good food and is very popular with the locals. They have a young man and a lady who hustle around very quickly seeing to all the customers with no fuss!
Favorite Dish: For our lunch here we ordered two nice sandwichs consisting of slices of meat, tomatos, lettuce and condiments. This was washed down by a 1-litre bottle of Andes beer and 2-glasses of white wine, all for the price of A$20 (US$7)! This was the only restaurant in Mendoza where we had young children come up to our table begging for food on one occassion. We rebuffed them twice during our meal but, in the end, did not quite finish one of our sandwiches before they returned once more. Gesturing for them to take it away, the two street children quickly grabbed it and headed off a short way down the sidewalk. However, almost immediately an older teenager emerged to take it off them - looked like he was the boss of that lot. We later asked our tour guide Andrea what was the appropriate thing to do under these circumstances and she said that it was considered OK to do what we did.
Being a 'parrillada' restaurant, they had a big BBQ fire pit inside their front window, so if you want some meat cooked up on the spot, they know how to do that too!
