Argentina is famous for its meat– particularly asado (grilled/barbecued meat of all kinds). I hadn’t had the chance to try any yet, so a few days ago my roommates Juli y Angeline took me to an AMAZING all-you-can-eat asado restaurant called Siga la Vaca (Follow the Cow). For about $25 USD, you get unlimited meat, sides (salad, mashed potatoes, french fries, and more), dessert, AND one bottle of wine/beer/soda per person. The experience was a strange mix of Argentinean and American sensibilities; an all-you-can-eat feast tapping into Argentinean tradition at an Argentinean pace (3+ hours for dinner). It was so good that when my friend Catherine and her amiga Katie arrived in Buenos Aires yesterday, I took them to Siga la Vaca for their first Argentinean dinner.
I was a vegetarian once?
