El Gaucho Meat Market

Included In

From the outside, El Gaucho looks like a regular old convenience store. Inside, you’ll find a colorful market filled with imported Central and South American specialties. There’s a full butcher shop too, but if you're hungry, head to the deli counter off to the right. That's where you’ll find giant, flaky empanadas (the chicken is a must), plus Argentinian sandwiches like skirt steak, the beef and ham-topped chivito, and our favorite, the grilled choripán. Head to the adjacent TV room afterward—it's painted like the interior of a sports stadium—and enjoy your haul while watching fútbol with extremely passionate regulars.
