A friend of mine who was born in Argentina took me to a great place in Van Nuys for lunch today... Mercado Buenos Aires on Sepulveda. The food was absolutely drop dead great and the prices were low for what you get. We were having lunch, so I had a couple of homemade Argentine sausages, a salad with tomatos, fresh basil and mozzerella. and a couple of empanadas. Someone there ordered a meat sampler for $20 that came to the table on a hibachi. Next time, I'm definitely going to try that. Filet mignon for two was $16 and they had a great breaded skirt steak milanesa too. They had a fresh meat counter, bakery counter and empanadas to go.

This is one of those "you have to be from there to know about it" kind of ethnic places.
