There are no reservations at this smoky den in posh Punta Carretas, so prepare to get in line. La Pulpería is legendary in Montevideo for its grilled meat – from tender strip steak to rib-eye and everything in between. With just 15 seats, it’s cosy, buzzing with excited chatter. Hanging skulls and horseshoes add to the rustic feel. Order a huge hunk of steak, a mixed salad with onions and a local lager for the full La Pulpería experience. Be warned: you may emerge smelling of woodsmoke at the end of the night, but it’s worth it.
