An emblematic peek inside Argentina’s meat-eating culture

What makes it stand out: The massive cuts of beef served on huge slabs with dozens of side dishes.

Typical dishes: La Cabrera offers more than 25 cuts of beef and owner Gastón Riveira says it’s crucial to try the bife de chorizo, a thick cut of juicy butterflied sirloin steak. For starters, order the provoleta, a provolone-type cheese that is placed on the grill, crisped on both sides and served oozing with melted cheesy goodness in the middle.

Brief history: In 2003, La Cabrera set out to create a new steakhouse that didn’t quite exist in Argentina: to design a comfortable porteño space serving high-quality beef and great Argentine wines.

What about the dining space: It has a unique style with chandeliers featuring spoons and forks and decorative plates lining the walls. The restaurant is located in the trendy Palermo Viejo district.

Other ventures: Besides the three locations in Buenos Aires, diners can find this steakhouse in Paraguay, the Philippines, Dubai, Brazil and Peru.
