My friend took me to Mercado del Puerto. Like first thing to know in Montevideo about food.
Eating in Mercado del Puerto. Is a typical place you have to see in Montevideo. And the good think is the meat.
Uruguay is characterized by good meat and they export a lot of the first quality, premium one. So you can find this type of meat in Mercado del Puerto.
I tried all kind of meat :-).
Uruguay export since long time ago. From canned meat in second world war to the british to fresh meat to Europe, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, South Africa…etc., because of british colonies, in general therms, of course.
Very old fashion style and rustic.
Here I found Carlos Gardel, born in Tacuarembó, Uruguay, originally. The most popular Tango artist in Argentina and all over the world.
