"El Parrillón" is a little red food stand in Mexico City that sells great Argentinian tacos, or a Mexican way of eating Argentinian cuts! Get El Especial.

Mexicans' weakness for anything that is wrapped into a tortilla is well-known. Now, what if this "anything" turndc out to be a succulent Argentinian cut? Well, right where Salamanca street meets Durango, you will find a little red food stand that sells a great Argentinian version of Mexican tacos... or a great Mexican way of eating Argentinian cuts - and some others: chistorra, chorizo, panceta...

My favourite taco is el especial a.k.a. "the special one" which is made of arrachera (steak) and provolone cheese, as well as the one with chorizo argentino. If you are already used to the spicy flavour of Mexican salsas, don't miss the ones they have here: they're hot and tasty. But don't take my word for it: go ahead and try the best parts of both cuisines in one single bite.
