The Argentine Asado Experience

Published July 23rd, 2019 by Amandaf

If you've been lucky enough to experience first-hand an Argentine Asado, then all other BBQ's will fair in comparison. Not your typical South Florida barbecue cuisine, Asado is not only a cooking technique, it's a way of life. In Argentina, Asado is a main source of national pride and a widely celebrated social event, along with soccer. 

The word Asado means barbecue, but the real attraction is the Parrilla, the Argentine grill. While there are many ways to prepare the grill, the most common is barbecuing vertically on an iron cross over the brasero, a firebox loaded with wood and/or carbón (charcoal). Once the fire is ablaze and glowing embers fall to the bottom, the hot coals are transferred and spread out under the main grilling area. Typically, every part of the cow is grilled, along with sausages, veggies, and even grilled cheese. After hours of grill smoke and preparation, the grill master commences the main event. 

 The good news is you don't have to travel to Argentina to enjoy an Asado. Come and experience a genuine Argentine Asado at Novecento's Asado Weekends for All-You-Can-Eat Meat and Sides every Saturday and Sunday at our Brickell, Aventura and Doral locations.

Gather with friends and family and take part in a festive and social Asado on our outdoor terrace for all-day festivities, food, and drinks. For just $35/person, enjoy all-you-can-eat meats like Vacío (flap steak), Matambre (flank steak), chorizo (sausage), chicken and slow-cooked brisket or short rib, perfectly grilled by our seasoned grill masters. Pair your meats with our homemade sides including mashed potatoes, French fries, rice, and salad. 

The fun doesn't stop there– for just $20 more, you can add a Bottomless drink package with free-flowing Prosecco, Sangria, Bloody Mary's, Mimosas or Beer to help get the party started. We may not be in Argentina, but Novecento certainly knows how to bring the experience to Miami.
