Parrillada Mixta del Mar
Not for delicate appetites, these mixed grills are hard to resist
No matter where you travel in Latin America, you'll find grilled meat, carne
asada, on the menu. Seafood and poultry are also grilled at parrillas, restaurants
specializing in grilled foods.
Particularly popular in Argentina and Colombia, the mixed grill called Parrillada
Mixta can be any combination of meats and poultry. In Brazil, the churrascaria
rodizio is tremendously popular. Rather than ordering a set combination of
meats, diners select from the grilled meats brought around the restaurant
on large skewers. When they can eat no more, they turn their table token from
the yes to the no side.
A Parrillada Mixta del Mar is a mixed seafood grill served with garlic butter
or Tartar sauce.
