When customers ask Jezabel Careaga if she’s got hot sauce, she likes to joke that she grew up closer to Antarctica than Mexico, a statement of Argentinian identity that’s as telling as it is geographically accurate. The food of this southern nation of South America is heavily influenced by European cooking. While restaurants like Malbec Argentine Steakhouse in Head House Square go for a more high-end expression of Argentine cuisine, Careaga goes for a homier café vibe at Jezabel’s, her Fitler Square hangout, which serves a variety of empanadas, sweet alfajores and other staples made from scratch.
