Oh, I Love You Milanesa
I once waxed rhapsodic about the wonders of milanesa
and whilst surfing flickr the other day, came across a nifty picture of a milanesa napolitana. It's a thing of beauty: beef, topped with ham and cheese. That's special Argentine vegetarianism.
Also, notice the orange soda top right. That's what Argentines call Fanta Naranja, an orange soda made by the Fanta subdivision of the Coca Cola corporation. It's extremely popular in south America, almost ubiquitous -- when I was down there that's just about all I drank, except for Quilmes, the national, and equally ubiquitous, beer.
I swear to God I am getting hungry for some real Argentine food.
