GREAT ARGENTINIAN LUNCH ON SEPULVEDA!

JERZ | Feb 23, 2001 01:07 AM

HAS ANYONE ELSE HAD THE GOOD FORTUNE TO STUMBLE UPON "THE CAFE BUENOS AIRES" ON SUPULVEDA, EAST SIDE, JUST NORTH OF SATICOY? IT'S A DELI WITH RESTAURANT CAFE IN A CORNER STRIP MALL. BUT ONCE INSIDE, YOU ARE TRANSPORTED TO AN AUTHENIC ARGENTINIAN CAFE-STYLE DINING EXPERIENCE. THE MENU IS BASIC, RESEMBLING THE ITEMS YOU'D SEE @ "GAUCHO GRILL", BUT THEN, SUDDENLY YOU SEE ALL SORTS OF INTERESTING DISHES BEING BROUGHT TO THE OTHER TABLES, THOSE OF THE MOSTLY ARGENTINIAN EX-PATRIOTS WHO EAT THERE. SPEAKING A LITTLE SPANISH, YOU ASK YOUR CRUSTY WAITER ABOUT THOSE MEALS AND YOU FIND OUT THAT THESE, THE "SPECIALS" AREN'T REALLY ON THE MENU! SO YOU FIND OUT THE NAME AND ORDER IT NEXT TIME. I'VE DONE IT THIS WAY ABOUT 3X WITH EXCELLENT RESULTS. UNIQUE. TASTY. HOMECOOKING @ A CHEAP PRICE. A FULL-BLOWN LUNCH WITH MAIN COURSE, SALAD, SIDES, DESSERT, EXPRESSO IS ABOUT 10 BUCKS. ANYONE ELSE KNOW ABOUT THIS TUCKED-AWAY-JEWEL-OF-A-LUNCH-PLACE WHO ISN'T ARGENTINIAN?
