Bife de Chorizo at La Parrilla Argentina, Colonia Roma
This oddly named cut of beef, one of several from which to choose at La Parrilla Argentina, is thick and juicy. It has nothing to do with "chorizo" as we know it. Most steaks are served with Papas Francesas.
La Parrilla Argentina-A neighborhood steakhouse, Colonia Roma
This is a cozy little restaurant at Calle Manzanillo No.81, Colonia Roma Sur, between Calle Aguascalientes y Calle Tlaxcala. It's open from 13 to 20 hours.
The menu is mostly about beef. The churrasco is recommended. Salads are good, and there's a reasonably priced selection of wines.
Desserts are skippable, with the possible exception of the ate con queso fresco.

Pigpicker's Paradise, Mercado Medellin, Colonia Roma
A carnitas stand, affilated with a closeby carnicería.
We each ate two tacos de lengua (tongue) and "nana", which una amiga claims are sow's teats. ¿Quien sabe?
