Milanesa and Las Tartas
Ryan: Mike, in a recent email you said that one of your couch surfing hosts cooked a lot of traditional Argentine food, can you explain that in more detail?
Mike: Sure thing…here is one that was made for me, called Milanesa (a breaded steak, very popular in Argentina). Sorry I do not have a picture of us eating it, but will keep this in mind in the future. Milanesa A second one that is popular is Las Tartas, it reminds me of quiche…I will send you a photo, but in the meantime, here is some info about it, and pics, Buenos Aries Daily >> Las Tartas, Las Tartas Image.

Hey, I am in Santiago, Chile right now and this is the common lunch food here, the completos. It’s like a hotdog, but has crushed tomatoes and smothered with avocado and mayo (I had some Chilean hot sauce on mine too). Good stuff! Just had one today.
