On a recent Saturday night ten good friends met to enjoy the food and music at Los Parilleros restaurant in Doral. The authentic Argentinian-Uruguayan steakhouse with a big Italian influence, opened more than 16 years ago. Several friends in our party are regular patrons and have enjoyed eating here for years. That should tell you that the food is excellent as is the whole dining experience.
Los Parilleros is open for Lunch and Dinner with extensive Menus for both. They have a bar area to the right of the front entrance, so almost any drink is available as well as wines. We waited for the rest of our party to arrive before sitting at our long table set-up to accommodate our large party in a pretty full restaurant.
On weekend nights there’s a talented musician who plays the piano and guitar while he sings, located to the left of the entrance. Part of the kitchen is open to the restaurant and there’s a refrigerated glass display of many of the cuts of beef right in front of that kitchen opening.
To start with there are extensive Appetizers choices offered with an italian influence. They offer Fried Calamari, Sausage, Grilled Octopus, Mussels Marinara or in white sauce, Shrimp Scampi, Tostones Rellenos with Shrimp and Scallops. We all shared tasting several Appetizers. As it very rarely happens, our group orders ten different main dishes. We again shared tasting ours with each other. We were also served warm bread and butter as well as glasses of cold water that were often re-filled.
They offer Soups like Pasta Fagioli, a Seafood Soup and a different Soup of the Day. The soup of the day I had was quite tasty. Several Salads are on the Menu, including Caprese (tomato & mozzarella), and classics like Caesar, Mixed and Grilled with meat.
