    Various: Mercado del Puerto

    by mcaffa Written Mar 14, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One cannot miss visiting the Mercado del Puerto, where you will find the best asado, or barbecue, in the city. There are many restaurants to choose from. You definitely have to have a bottle of Medio y Medio to accompany your meal. I recommend going to Palenque.

    Favorite Dish: Parrilla, which is essentially barbecued meat (as well as organs, so if your not too keen into eating that, make sure you ask them to substitute with more sausage or morcilla (blood sausage).

    Utilities for Mate Tea

    by pepples46 Updated Aug 14, 2003

    Mate Tea..can make a hot day much more bearable

    Favorite Dish: the locals will take pride in sharing their national brew...you see many running around with flask of hot water to fill up the cuja again. first time you might feel a bitter taste , but that disapears soon, and your system will feel refreshed.
    the utillities can be bought at the many shops in Uruguay.

    La Pasiva - a chain of good restaurants/bars, all around the city.

    Mercado del Puerto - a whole lot of expensive barbeque restaurants in an old market.

    Favorite Dish: Chivito - Meat, ham, bacon, egg, tomato, mayonaise, and other stuff (I forget). In a sandwich ('al pan') or on a plate ('al plato').

    They have good pizza in Uruguay. Look for places with stone pizza ovens.

    They have reasonable priced lunch specials, good quantity, excellent quality and taste. Great for back-packers ! Also try the 'flan casero' (kind of caramel pudding). No need of reservation. You must know that there are other 'La Pasiva' restaurants in all Montevideo (I don't know for the rest of Uruguay, just ask for the closer one !

    Favorite Dish: Definitely 'Panchos' ! Girls will have one (to keep the line ...) but I have seen boys betting on who could eat more ... and believe me or not, I am talking of more than 10 !! They are delicious.

    In Uruguay the food are good and the restaurant are
    cleaning,. You can drink the water withaut problem.
    The principal food is the meat, but you can eat annyfood.
    In Montevideo the restaurantes are inexpensives in general, but in Punta del Este all is very expensive.
    Is a distinguished and refined place, whit luxury restaurant. but, you can have a good dinner or lunch
    in Avenue Gorlero for less money. I think U$S 20 or 30
    for person.

    Favorite Dish: I like eat the 'chivito'. It is meat 'lomo' very delicious

    Mercado del Puerto at 1553-1557 Perez Castellano St, located in La ciudad vieja,(old city) recomending Ristorante-Parrilla-Paela: 'La Pentola' or 'La Pradera' which has really nice people serving you!!!
    Prices are in a different range I would say from 12 to $15, a coffee cost around U$1.50
    Packet of cigarretes ( if you smoke goes around U$1.80, try Nevada lights or Nevada best brand!!!
    Dont you forget when you are there, to drink 'Grapa Miel' is a really nice drink, to serve straight or on the rocks!!!

    Favorite Dish: Asado( Uruguayan grill) simply the best, have a nice cold Sangria, with 'Promolone Cheese' and Chorizo, have a really nice glass of wine (medio y medio) and enjoy the music and people
