This one's for you, Mom. Just scouting it out for you. Don't worry, we will go again when you get here next month!
So we went to La Peña del Colorado, a local club/restaurant with live acts every night.
We ate copious amounts of amazing Argentine food, in a very rustic atmosphere. We started with meats, cheeses and olives on a slab of wood, morcilla spread on bread -- which I LOOOOVE, as long as I don't think about what it really is -- some sort of gaucho "french fries," and hot, cheese-filled rolls. YUM!
Then we had our main dishes; Mark had a lamb stew served in an earthen bowl,
Neil had locro, a traditional Argentine stew that I thought we would share, but it wasn't enough for the both of us. It was SOOOoooo delish, I should have gotten my own bowl.
Instead, and I really don't know what I was thinking, I got the brick-oven pizza. Super cheesy. I only ate this bite, and then I nabbed spoonfulls of locro when I could. Who gets pizza at a place like this??? Dumb dum dum.
