So it is lunchtime today and we are in the town of Villa General Belgrano. Because this
is a very German town we’ve decided to find a German restaurant and order up some German
food. So we saw a few of our favorites on the menu. We’ve placed our order and that
should be arriving soon. Ooh.
Alright Sam, so you’ve been mastering the name of this restaurant. Where are we having
哪里吃中饭？我们在吃El Ciervo Rojo.这是什么东西？就像一只很大的红鹿
lunch today? We’re eating El Ciervo Rojo. And what does that mean? It’s a big red deer
and I’m going to show it to you right now. Over there!
We couldn’t have a German meal without a little bit of beer. This is actually an Argentinian
beer. Isenbeck. Pour the Isenbeck Sam. That looks refreshing. Refreshing. Time to try
it. Salut! Salut!
That’s awesome beer. You know what, they have some of the best craft beers I’ve ever tried
here in this particular region of Argentina. This one isn’t craft but it is pretty good,
isn’t it? Yes.
And we’re just so hungry that we’re munching down on the complimentary palitos which are
sticks. Little sticks. Little bread sticks.
Alright, so the food has arrived. What are you having today Sam? And this is the meal
I’ve been waiting for. I’ve had this once here in town and it is awesome. So it is goulash
on top of spaetzle. And spaetzle is like a kind of a German egg noodles. They are delicious.
So good. And the best part is look at all of this cheese they’ve given me. It is time
to sprinkle it all on. Wow!
You just dumped it in there. Yeah, I don’t mess around with my cheese friends.
Alright, now it is time to finally try it. I know the noodles don’t look the most appetizing.
They look like little worms but they are so so good. Those are the tastiest little worms
you’re ever going to have in your whole life.
And the thing that makes this so good is that the beef in the goulash is really tender.
And the sauce is delicious so as soon as you put it in your mouth it just melted right
away. It melts. So you’re going to share that with me, right? Probably not. I think you
got the better dish out of the two we ordered. I win. You lose. Hahaha, look at that. Look
at that cheese.
What do you got over there? Alright, so Ii ordered a sausage with Chucrut. This is chucrut.
And it is a lot like um sauerkraut. It looks so much like sauerkraut. They just use a different
name for it here. And this is a boiled pork sausage. I think in German this one is called
Knackwurst. It makes a bit of a crunchy sound. The Knack. Gnack, knack.
It is really nice. I just love the sauerkraut. I think that is my favorite part of the meal.
It is just so sour. Hahaha.
Wow! Deep revelations over here.
And the kind hubby bubby dubby shared a little bit with you. Yes. I was experiencing food
envy. Massive food envy. Not just a little bit. That’s a very dangerous thing. Not just
a little bit.
Intense. Intense food envy.
The meat is just so soft. You don’t even need a knife to cut it. It just breaks apart in
your mouth. You don’t even need to chew it.
Let it disintegrate. I kind of disagree there. I think you do need to chew it a little bit
before you swallow. But like this is my favorite German dish. It’s apparently Swavian but it
is popular in other parts of Europe. Apparently, Hungary also claims that it is. Also claims
it as its own dish. So yeah, kind of like a German-Hungarian meal over here. Very hearty,
very filing. Probably not the best on a really hot summer day. This would be a great winter
dish. But it is so tasty we just had to get it. Hmmm.
So we polished off the Goulash, the sausage, the Spätzle, the beer. How are you feeling?
Yes, we did. I’m feeling great. I’m full. I’m very full. Stuffed! Stuffed would be yeah
that’s the word. Alright, how about we talk about the price point. What was the cost of
this meal? So the cost of this meal wasn’t cheap. It was a hundred and fifty pesos for
mine and a hundred and thirty for yours. And there has been really high inflation in Argentina
in the past few years and prices have skyrocketed. So, I mean your’e not going to get cheap meals
here if your’re eating on the center of town but the quality of the food is really good
though. Okay, so if we had to convert that into US dollars can you give us an average.
$15 dollars per plate more or less. And then the beer is like six or seven dollars for
