Martín Fierro (Avenida Eusebio A. Morales, tel. 264-1927 or 223-1333, noon–3 p.m. and 6–11 p.m. daily) is a brightly lit place where decor runs a distant second to simply serving slabs of meat—grilled beef, chicken, and pork, either domestic or imported from Omaha, Nebraska.
Expect to pay upwards of US$25 for imported beef. The restaurant also serves pasta, seafood, and fish, but that’s not why anyone comes here. Meals include access to a meager salad bar, but who’s kidding whom?
If you really feel like punishing your heart, try the tasty mozzarella frita (fried mozzarella—oh, go ahead, you’re on vacation). Then try the quite good tres leches (three-milk) cake. Book your angioplasty ahead of time.
