The new buzz seems to be Uruguayan sandwiches called Chivitos. I've never had one. Anyone try them yet?

    I had one in Argentina across the bay from Uruguay. It was a few years ago and apparently it was from a young goat. I had it at a downtown Argentine BBQ place where they have several types of BBQ available. It was OK and the red wine was much better.

    Argentine steak is very very good.

          Checking the menu of a local Uruguayan restaurant (Los Gauchitos) online, I see that one of the chivitos (the "Especial") is Filet Mignon, Ham, Mozzarella, Egg, Lettuce, Tomato and Bacon on special bread.

          Sounds good! Now I have to go try one.

            I'll tell you, I once thought that way as a young man. If you ever have the chance to sample some cabrito (young goat) off the pit at a BBQ in Texas, you won't go back to beef until the young goat is all gone - which won't take long. Good cabrito is like a smoked turkey leg, but with that silky smooth and sweet taste like a pork butt. Not gamey at all.

            Watch all the old hands around the pit - it isn't brisket they're waiting on! You put this in a sandwich - it is essentially chivito.

            Lord, I'm hungry for it now.
