An Argentine market that also stocks goods from other South American countries. Patrons sip their maté or enjoy the only two items on the menu-sandwiches and empanadas. The latter make great snacks, but order the former: massive things constructed from fresh bread and your choice of meats (vegetarian? You can ask for a delicious hearts of palm variety). The milanesa crackles nicely; the matambre, a sausage of flank steak stuffed with vegetables, works.

    Balance defines a great sandwich. In the ratio of meat to bread, of cheese to meat and condiments to everything else, if you're heavy-handed in any one way, it's going to ruin the final product. Balance is where the Chivito at Puert...
