Argentinian Asado?

Does anyone have suggestions on where to find a traditional Argentinian Asado or BBQ grilled meat restaurant in Montreal. I just returned from Buenos Aires and I'm still salivating about the 600gm rib eye steak that the waiter cut with 2 spoons! So tender and succulent.....let my dream live on!

  1. You could try Argentino on Beaubien. Haven't been yet but they were featured on Curieux B├ęgin last week:

      Oh thank you, thank you! I will put it on the list to try!

        I went to Argentino last summer and it wasn't very good. Food was barely passable and definitely not spoon cutting tender. I wouldn't go back but I also don't have an alternate suggestion for you.

          Spoon-cutting tender? Is that a realistic expectation? It's grilled meat.

            just referring to the OP post...
            hyperbole aside... I didn't find Argentino very good.

              I didn't think it was possible until I saw it with my own eyes! That was one DIVINE BOVINE!

      2. Argentina is famous for its sharp spoons.
