Discover the Asado, the art of cooking meat over a flame and charcoal, coming straight from Argentina! With Mesita, the latest counter in Paris 9th arrondissement, a whole new world of flavors opens to you!

A new counter welcomes you until 2 in the morning, delighting you with Argentinean street-food specialties. Mesita opens from late June 2021 in Paris 9th arrondissement and gives asado prides of place, aka a grilling method coming straight from South America!

Genuine institution in Argentina, the art of cooking meat over flame and charcoal, comes to the French capital for foodies’ and gourmets’ greatest joy! The latter probably have already tried the team behind Mesita’s first address: restaurant Alamesa in Batignolles. Here, the same Argentinean cuisine, but counter version.

On the menu of Mesita (“small table” in English), restaurateur Elie Audo perpetuates his traditional technique and proposes it to the short menu giving pride of place to South-American sandwiches focusing on the Asado culture. Standing in the small 25sqm eatery, discover the Asado sandwich made by the book.

Wanna have a peak at the recipe? Paprika ciabatta bread, Uruguayan beef colita (typically South-American cut and pilar in the Asado culture), chimichurri sauce, jalapenos, and roasted provolone cheese! Mouthwatering, I hear?

Of course, more Argentinean recipes are also to be discovered, but are kept secret, and you will have to come over to discover them!
