10 Food Experiences To Have in Montevideo
1. Dig into Uruguay Beef at La Pulperia, the Best Local Parrilla
Given the popularity of meat and the many places to eat it, it can be daunting to find the best places to experience a parilla (steakhouse) in Montevideo.
One place which stands out is La Pulperia, in the Puntas Carretas, one of the city’s coolest neighborhoods.
La Pulperia is described as one of the best parillas, if not the best in Montevideo.
It is not a fancy place, but a laid-back restaurant packed with locals. It has a simple menu, great service, and unrivaled-quality meat.
From the menu, order the pulpon or rump steak or asado (short ribs), which are the most popular cuts of meat.
The huge portions of beef come served with a side of homemade fries and a salad.
Get it with a lovely bottle of local Uruguayan Tannat wine; an assault of richness and flavor that will leave you wanting more!

2. Indulge In a Chivito At a Chiviteria
The chivito is the national sandwich of Uruguay.
Chivito means “little goat” in Spanish, and the history of this sandwich goes back to the 1960s.
In the story, an Argentine asked a restaurant owner for a dish of roasted goat like the one she was accustomed to back home.
The chef had no goat, but he slapped together a sandwich and topped it with a little of just about everything in the kitchen. It was a hit, and the Chivito sandwich was born.
The chivito is a huge sandwich filled with loads of meat. It is made up of a thin slice of churrasco (filet mignon beef), topped with bacon, mozzarella cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, mayonnaise, ham, olives, and a fried egg.
It is served with french fries or baked potatoes, and it can be prepared as a sandwich or as a dish.
If you are still hungry for more, you might want to try the Canadiense, a variation of the chivito sandwich with Canadian bacon.
There is no shortage of places to have a chivito in Montevideo. Honestly, it is difficult to pick just one place to have this sandwich. Restaurants take great pride in making the best chivitos, as they celebrate the national dish.
Our advice is to have it more than once, at a couple of different locations.
Best Restaurant in Montevideo for Chivito
Chiviteria Marcos in the Pocitos neighborhood, just a couple of blocks from the beach, serves it in large portions with local beer. Our recommendation is to go there, indulge, and share it!

3. Have a Gourmet Lunch with Tannat, the National Wine of Uruguay

4. Try Morcilla Dulce at Mercado del Puerto – A Parrilla Experience
You may already be familiar with blood sausages or morcilla. In Uruguay, morcilla dulce is a local specialty that you don’t want to miss out on.
These are sweet blood sausages made with sugar, raisins, and ground nutmeg to give them their sweet taste.
You’ll be surprised at how sweet these sausages really are. The caramelized sugar on the sausages combined with the raisins and nutmeg make them like a dessert.
Have your first sausage dessert, an experience of a lifetime.
One of the best places to experience morcilla dulce is at Mercado del Puerto in the Old City or Ciudad Vieja.
A market only by name, this Montevideo former old port market building built in 1868 has impressive iron-wrought structures.
This market is now made up of a pavilion of restaurants dedicated to selling meat.
These parrillas all share the common elements of open fires and large iron grills filled with varied cuts of meats and sausages cooking tenderly to perfection.
Although it is a bit touristy, with restaurant staff fighting for your attention while presenting their English menu, it is worth a visit. Look around and seat yourself at a counter that appeals to your taste buds.
One restaurant that’s popular with locals and that we recommend is Don Garcia.
Address: Mercado del Puerto, Rambla 25 de Agosto de 1825 228, Montevideo, Uruguay

5. Grab a Pizza “Por Metro”
Pizza por metro, literally meaning “pizza by the meter,” is a traditional Uruguayan pizza. It is similar to a typical Neapolitan-style pizza.
However, instead of being round, it’s rectangular, and the crust is thicker.
The pizzas are cooked in big clay ovens with a variety of toppings and are sold by the meter.
This dish is a great example of the Italian influence visible in Montevideo Uruguay food. In fact, it’s estimated that 40% of the Uruguayan population is of Italian descent.
You can enjoy this indulgent dish as a late-night snack option with your favorite pizza toppings.

7. Make a Stop for Lehmeyun, Montevideo Local Food from Armenia
The Armenian community in Uruguay is one of the oldest in South America. We were surprised to learn that most live in the capital, Montevideo.
Many of the Armenians are third or even fourth-generation descendants of the first wave of immigrants coming from the Ottoman Empire.
When the Armenians migrated to Uruguay, they brought their traditional cuisine and in particular, the Lehmeyun.
While in Turkey exploring the local food specialties, lahmacun (the Turkish spelling) was one of our favorite street food dishes.
In Montevideo, Uruguay, the Lehmeyun is a round, thin piece of dough topped with minced meat most commonly beef or lamb.
Finely cut-up minced vegetables and herbs including onions, tomatoes, and parsley are added to it.
The lehmeyun is then baked and served warm.

One of the best places to have it in Montevideo is Erevan, a popular Armenian restaurant.

9. Sip on Medio y Medio for Merienda At Mercado Agricola
This traditional Uruguay drink quickly became one of our favorite drinks. Medio y Medio is a unique sparkling wine made by combining 50% white wine and 50% sparkling wine or spumante.
The name Medio y Medio means “half and half” in Spanish.
This unique sparkling wine was first created in 1886 at a bar called Roldys, located at Mercado del Puerto. Today, you will find it everywhere as a popular aperitif option.
This refreshing drink with a light and slightly sweet taste is incredibly easy to drink. You will also find some blends with red, rose, and white wines to cater to all tastes.
The Mercado Agricola de Montevideo (MAM Agricultural Market) is an attraction and can be described as a foodie center.
Located north of the city, it takes about 10 minutes to get there by bus from the Montevideo city center.
This market is known for its sheer size and its early 20th-century architecture. Upon entry through the main door, the modern design and the cleanliness of the place is striking especially for a working farmers market.
With more than 100 vendors, including specialty food stores and restaurants, you will find a large selection of fruits, vegetables, and organic specialty stores.
Visit the market when there is one of the many events scheduled at the end of the week.

10. Have Flan Dulce de Leche for Dessert
Flan has ancient origins dating back to Roman times. Today, it is enjoyed in a variety of forms in other countries around the world, like in Mexico, with its own flair.
Uruguay has its own version of this historic dessert – Flan Dulce de Leche.
The flan is served along with a scoop of dulce de leche, a caramelized milk originating in Latin America.
Depending on the restaurant, it may also be served with a scoop of ice cream.
The flan itself is slightly gelatinous in form, made from milk, sugar, and eggs, and commonly, vanilla.
The dulce de leche addition gives this Montevideo food a more complex, rich, and sweet flavor.

The Pascualina is right up my street as I don’t eat meat.
Okay I am a big time foodie and now you just made me add one more place to my overwhelming bucket list lol. Lehmeyun looks absolutely delicious – I mean who will not like dough and minced meet. Did you say more cows then people? Well, we need more tourists (aka people) there – now! 🙂
That’s great Jo…lol!!! That’s indeed why we are highlighting Uruguay. They need more visitors 🙂 Seriously, the food is surprising and delicious. The beverages are outstanding as well. Watch out for part 2, for even more unique specialties. As a foodie, definitively add Uruguay to your list. Cheers!
What an informative post! I learned do much! I have never tried any of these foods or beverages but you made them all sound wonderful. It reminds me of South Africa in that meat is always a large part of the meals and as a carnivore, I love that! I appreciate your blog and will sign up for the mailing list. Thanks for sharing 🙂
Hi Karla, thanks so much for your support and for joining our community. That’s interesting that the food is similar to the food in South Africa. We’ve never been there and would love to visit and discover the local food specialties. Looking forward to sharing more in part 2. Cheers 🙂
I have never been able to develop a taste for mate but Tannat sound right up my ally =) Thanks for sharing this my mouth is watering.
That’s awesome Ann that you have tried Mate before. Adding sugar made it much more tolerable. The Tannat is amazing. Look for it at your local liquor store. Thanks for your comments!
Great subject and writing! Never been to Montevideo but I’m down to go asap!
Thanks Briana, so glad you enjoyed reading about Montevideo and the unique local specialities.
Nice post and picks! Never been to in Uruguay yet, but sure going to someday. Will definitely have to try out something out of here then.
Hi Piritta, so glad you enjoyed reading the post and discovering the foods of Uruguay. Hopefully, your travels will take you to the region soon 🙂 Thanks for your comments.
Wow! I want that chorizo so badly now! And I didn’t know they had wine in Uruguay! I’ll have to try that one day. Thank you for sharing your experience. It all looks yummy!
You are most welcome Eloise. It is too bad that Uruguay is often overlooked. The food is amazing with unique specialties. Do consider Montevideo on your travels 🙂 Cheers!
Really want to try Mate! Also the sweet blood sausage – sounds similar to something in the Philippines called “longganisa”. A sweet sausage/chorizo type of thing. Your posts always make me so hungry!
Thanks Mel 🙂 That’s interesting about longganisa. We’ll be in the Philippines later this year, so can’t wait to try this out. Hope you can get to taste Mate soon, it is an acquired taste, but good for you 🙂 Thanks for your comments.
Lots of interesting food and drink options. I really want to try the sweet blood sausage. I have just been getting into black pudding in England (which is similar to a blood sausage) and I can imagine adding the sweet flavors would be really good.
The morcilla dulce is really interesting. To be honest, it took a couple of bites to get used to it and then enjoy it. Would love to taste black pudding in the U.K. That’s awesome. Thanks for your comments.
Everything looks and sounds amazing! I definitely shouldn’t have read this before dinner. Now I want chorizo!
Thanks Mags, there is never a good time to read a food post 🙂 The same is true for a writing a food post. Cheers
I always love to find great places to eat. Looks like a beautiful city with good eats.
Oh how this brought back memories of Argentina, we loved the food and this sound some what similar. Tanet yummmm… I forgot all about that grape makes me want to go the wine store right now. I always thought the sharing of mate was a great tradition and I hope that it is one that continues.
That’s wonderful to hear Rob about the memories. It’s true, there are many similarities between Argentine and food specialties from Uruguay. Agree, love the tradition around mate, though the taste is acquired. Do you like the taste? From what we saw in Montevideo, the mate culture is deep-rooted and will stick around for many years to come. Look for Tannat wines and enjoy a taste of Uruguay today 🙂 Cheers~
Great list! I think I would like the Mercado best so I could have tasters from all the different shops and stalls – even if you would need to roll me home afterwards! And I’ve never tried wine from Uruguay – will have to look out for some at the wine shop next time I’m there!
You are right Vicki, Mercado del Puerto is a great place to start and get an overview of the local and traditional foods. Tannat wine from Uruguay is amazing. They export around the world, look for it at your nearest liquor/wine store. When you find it, get the wines from Bodega Bouza, you will be impressed. Thanks for your comments.
Those drinking vessels are amazing!
I want to try Mate — sounds like a healthy fusion and I love that it’s a social drink but isn’t alcoholic. So cool!
Guess what Danielle, you can find yerba mate at Trader Joe’s. If there is one in your area, try it out. Unfortunately, you will miss the sharing and social aspects of the drink 🙂 but you will get the experience. Let us know what you think. Cheers.
I must say I’ve never given much thought to visiting Uruguay, but how can a country that has a museum devoted to their national beverage be missed! And the “dessert sausage?” Um, yum! Thanks for highlighting such interesting food choices!
You are most welcome Tonya. Indeed, if your travels take you to South America, it is worth making a stop in Uruguay. The Mate museum is quite fascinating. See here for a more detailed article about the Mate museum https://www.authenticfoodquest.com/any-time-is-mate-time-in-uruguay/
Glad you liked the food highlights. The dessert sausage is quite a treat! Thanks for your comments.
I had no idea there were 4 cows to 1 person in Uruguay! That’s quite an amusing fact! I’ve tried the traditional morcilla in Spain and was quite surprised at how much I enjoyed it. Morcilla dulce sounds quite delicious (apart from the blood, of course!). Thanks for the great list of things to try when we travel to Montevideo!
Hi Kim, when are you traveling to Montevideo? Don’t hesitate to reach out for any tips or suggestions. Our next post will have another 5 incredible foodie activities to check out. Look out for that post too. Wonderful that you liked the Morcilla – it is quite tasty. The morcilla dulce is unique – in that you expect it to be salty, but it is quite sweet. Uruguay is a fascinating country and the beef is excellent. Appreciate your comments.
I’ve just woke up, haven’t had breakfast and had to endure reading about all these food, haha! I certainly wouldn’t mind some pascualina right now whilst watching sunset at La Rambla, or sunrise, as that’s what I’m doing now…
That’s awesome…a view of La Rambla is quite incredible. And made better with a little local delicacy. Cheers.
I am so impressed with wineries that avoid using pesticides in the growing process, very rare that this happens. I wonder if it modifies the product dramatically? Lehmeyun, now that I need to try! Guess I better add a visit to the bucket eat list. 🙂
Thanks Anna…lot’s to add to the must try food list 🙂 Bodega Bouza does not go as far as saying they are organic meaning no pesticides, they strive to use the least amount possible and adopt natural ways of fighting the pests. Great philosophy and delicious wines. Thanks for your comments 🙂
This looks so amazing. I think I would love the Mercado del Puerto, so I can try different foods and nibble on local delicacies. Trying the local foods is such an important part to understanding the local culture and truly learning about a country. I love how your articles take me there and let me experience this place.
Thank you so much Maria, we really appreciate your feedback. So happy to hear that our articles take you the local places and the local foods. Mercado del Puerto is quite an institution. Not only as a historical site, but also the history behind many of the restaurants within. If your travels ever take you to South America, it is worth making the trip to Montevideo, Uruguay. Cheers 🙂
I am literally saving this post.
I’ve had Yerba Matte a lot here in the states. I live close to Yerba Buena too, which makes me laugh. I’m really glad that you put what exactly yerba matte is.
Such a great post!
Thank you! 😀
That’s funny that you live close to Yerba Buena..lol.Do they have lots of yerba mate in your area 🙂 How do you like your yerba mate? In Paraguay, they drink it cold and call it “terere”. Personally preferred yerba mate hot with sugar added. So glad you like the post 🙂
This post takes me back to Anthony Bourdain’s episode on Uruguay, lovely food! Lehmeyun like you mentioned seems to be an adaptation of Lehmacun I have had in Turkish joints! The blood sausage sounds fantastic, I like the touch of raisins and nutmeg!
That’s wonderful Prateek for the link to Anthony Bourdain’s episode on Uruguay. Truly great food. That’s interesting to hear about the similarities with Lehmacun…I guess as neighboring countries, it is not surprising that there are similarities. The morcilla dulce is quite interesting. Having it sweet is unique and the touch of raisins and nutmeg is wonderful. Appreciate your comments.
I have never tasted any of these dishes before but I know the dishes focused on meat will have my thumbs up! Your posts have intrigued me about the region.
Hi Rose, so wonderful to hear that you are intrigued about Uruguay. It is worth visiting especially for the meat. It is the only country in the world which uses a traceability system which lets you know exactly which cow the beef you are eating is coming from. Pretty cool. You would love it 🙂 Appreciate your comments.
That is a country on my bucket list, at the bottom but you bumped it up. And look at the yummy food. The only I know and drink is mate but now I would like to try the rest, especially the Lehmeyun.
That’s awesome that you know mate. Have you tried it? Did you like it? For us , it is an acquired taste…though the addition of sugar makes it quite pleasant. Hang tight, more yummy foodie experiences coming in part 2 🙂 Really hope you can get to visit soon. It is a secret gem in South America 🙂 Thanks Evelyne.
All the food looks and sounds very interesting. I love trying new food and I bet it was a lot of fun.

This looks awesome! Pics are great, especially that wine. I’d love to visit one day.
