We ordered a parrillada for two. The beef was decent but when one member of the group tried the chicken he said he thought it smelled and tasted funny. He had the rest of us smell it and it was rancid. We were shocked that something that smelled so bad was served to us, the customer. We brought it to the attention of our server who also smelled the chicken at the table and made a face as if it smelled bad. He immediately took the rest of the parrillada and said that he would be right back. At that point we had stopped eating because we were worried about the chicken having touched any of the other meat. The server back and offered a free dessert on the house. Which was almost offensive since we weren't sure at that point if any of us were going to get sick over the next few days. The waiter went on to give us some explanation about how the chicken must have taken up the smell of another meat while in the freezer before being cooked. I told him that once meat is cooked it should not have any other smell than that of its own. My husband kindly told him that we did not need a scientific explanation and that we would not accept a free dessert in exchange for them having served us rotten chicken. They ended up not charging us for the parrillada. This is the only logical ending as this is a food safety issue.
We were happy to not gave been charged for the unfinished/rotten food.
