This small gem is the most Argentine-intensive restaurant in the county, if not Southern California. Instead of drowning you in a sea of meat, owners Guillermo and Susana Giacobbe lure you with dishes impossible to find at their competitors'. It's a bona fide deli, alternating between the dual Argentine obsessions of sandwiches in French loaves (the entraña, fat with grilled skirt steak, redeems the steak sandwich from oblivion) and white bread, a place where you nearly forget that empanadas?flaky, gorgeous fat things?are also available, so dazzled you are by dishes that not even the family of your former Argentine gal or guy ever made for you.
