Time Out says

At the rear of this corner store (which shares ownership with gaucho steakhouse standbys Tango Sur and Folklore) stands a small butcher counter—presided over rather charmingly by faded Diego Maradona ephemera—where you can stock up on all the fixings for a DIY asado. Think garlicky Argentinian chorizo, mollejas (sweetbreads), and grill-loving beef cuts like falda (skirt steak) and matambre (flank). Don’t forget the tangy, house-made chimichurri sauce, and if you want to counter the meat sweats with something sweet, check out the shop’s impressive selection of that other Argentinian favorite, dulce de leche.
