Buenos Aires is the one city where it’s possible to go around the world in 8 blocks; one minute you’re on Peru, then next United States, then Sicilly. Walking down the more bohemian quarter of Palermo, gazing through the vast array of boutique stores with all manner of pretty things for sale, I finally found La Cabrera, a highly regarded purveyor of local and traditional cuisine. I was told, however, that they were closed for a private function, but that I could still get some lunch at their sister restaurant – one that was 4 doors down from them! It goes without questioning, that having two restaurants serving the same menu side by side is marginally indicative of its popularity. Once again, a menu with all manner of meat was flashed before me, as was a lengthy wine list that luckily had a few wines available by the carafe, but it wasn’ t quite meat that I was after on this occasion and I soon spotted my next victim.
