Argentine butcher

sabrina0 Oct 4, 2007 06:36 AM

Where can I find the best Argentine butcher/grocery? I've seen a few mentioned here and there on the boards (mostly in Jackson Heights, I believe) but no focused discussion.

I'm looking specifically for great chorizos, as well as imported empanada dough, dulce de leche, etc.

    Have a look in Elmhurst, Queens ... Argentine and Uraguian Neighborhood. I will see if I can get you a name. If you want to eat out ... I highly recommend "La Fusta" in the same neighborhood.

      not sure about some of the other items, but I had some tremendously good asado de tirra (short ribs) and entraña (skirt steak) that a friend of mine ordered from the Casablanca Meat Market, in East Harlem. We had a bbq and we seasoned the meat with salt and pepper only, and the grilled meat was a huge hit.
