El Pobre Luis

Buenos Aires, Argentina

Steakhouse El Pobre Luis is a local institution, with diners travelling from all parts of Buenos Aires to dine at its address on the edge of the city’s small Chinatown. It’s a no-nonsense kind of a place, with a bright, happily cluttered dining room featuring sports memorabilia on the walls and rainbow-hued tiles, with the star attraction, the grill, taking centre stage. Food-wise, expect extra-sized portions of flavour-packed Uruguayan-style barbecue favourites. A hero dish is pamplona, which sees a locally reared chicken breast stuffed with an indulgent blend of bacon and cheese, and is best enjoyed alongside a decadent side of garlic and parsley fries. Throw in fast and efficient service and an outstanding wine list and, well, the famous national footballer players who have been spotted eating here clearly know a good parrilla when they see one.
