Slice Carey Jones 17 comments

Argentina may be known for its steak, but if I had to name another classically Argentinian food, it'd be pizza. El Cuartito, in the Buenos Aires barrio of Recoleta, is one of the oldest pizzerias in the city, founded in 1934; and, according to my tour guide for the week, it's also one of the best. More

For each post, she randomly hops into a cab and lets the driver point her to locro (stew with hominy, peppers and meat parts), lechón (suckling pig), or chinchulín (cow intestines). "I initially thought maybe I want to pick older guys or guys with a potbelly or guys who look like they know how to eat, but you never really know," she told the Washington Post. A cab driver...
