Description: Quit close to San Telmo´s Plaza Dorrego, you´ll find a very good grillbar. It´s very small with a big stone grill oven and has a very good smell of meat and charcoil. They serve cheap, fast and tasty parrilla favorites ranging from choripan (chorizo on bread) and morcipan (blood sausage on bread) to grilled steaks. On the wall you´ll find good reviews from visitors from all over the world, scribbled on peaces of paper. But Nuestra Parrilla is also popular among San Telmo locals, since it was quite packed up to the sidewalk. I would go for the choripan, which will cost you 4 pesos.
