#eatArgentina So I think it is time to get ourselves a Choripán
for lunch. El chori era tuyo? Si.
Gracias. Tada. Come here. Para llevar. No necesito un plato, pero gacias.
Okay, ready. So they have lots of different toppings but
the right way to do this is with Chimichurri. So we’re going to put lots of that. Let’s
add it on the bread to make it a
little less messy. Pica. Si. Mi gusta picante. Si. Ah, bueno. Maybe a little bit on the meat. They’re warning
me that it is spicy. This is good. Yeah. All set. So we just got ourselves the quintessential
Argentine street food snack. Have a look at this – the Choripan. Yeah, this is the best street food you’re
going to find in Buenos Aires. Yeah, so choripan gets its name because you basically have chorizo
which is a sausage and then you have pan which is your bread. So put the two words together
and you’ve got Choripán. Haha! And we put lots of chimichurri on ours because
we like things spicy. So I’m just going to dig right in because this looks so so good. Yeah, we were thinking of getting two but
then we saw someone else order. We saw the size of the choripan and we’re like you know
what we’re just going to start with one. Yum. Look at that. Look at all of that sausage.
Mmmm. That is so good. Wow. I’m really enjoying
this right here. And you know what. You can grab this from a little street food cart.
You don’t even have to go to a restaurant. Like we’re just walking along a park. We saw
a whole row of those carts, went up there, they cook it right in front of us. And two
minutes later it was ready. I’m going to let you try some Sam. So Sam this is your first time trying choripan
on this particular trip. Yeah, I think I had it like a long time ago. Maybe five or six
years ago but it has been such a long time that I honestly kind of forget what it tastes
like. So this is an exciting moment. Dig right in. Mmmm. Oh yeah. Oh yeah. Wow. How is that? Yeah, like you said that is a really good
quality sausage. A really good Choripán. Yeah. And sorry I should say chorizo. A really
good chorizo. And what really makes this good as well is
that the quality of bread is high. Yeah, it is fresh bread. Yeah, and just before they served it they
put the bread on the grill just to kind of soften it up a bit. Give it a bit more you
know a smokey flavor as well. A bit more of a smokey flavor. Exactly. Yeah. And what do you think of all of the Chimichurri
because people were looking at us like woah that is spicy. I think they were doing that
because they thought we were you know foreigners and oh man they’re making a mistake but we
like our food spicy so the chimmichurri gives it an extra kick and I recommend you definitely
put on some Chimichurri. Maybe not as much as us but definitely try it. Final thoughts then. What did you think of
your choripan? I thought it was amazing. And that is by far the cheapest meal we’ve had
in Buenos Aires since we’ve been here. That came in total for the one massive Choripan.
That came to 25 Pesos. So you think about that. That is like that is just a couple bucks
and you’re having yourself one of the best kinds of street food you can get in the city. So if you’re looking to pickup choripan where
can you find it in Buenos Aires? Okay, so there are stands scattered across the city
in different neighborhoods but today we are Avenida de Los Italianos which is kind of
like Puerto Madero just before you hit the Ecological Reserve. So lots of stands in the
area and you can find a lot more than just Choripan. Lots of different types of street
food while you’re out here. So we highly recommend it. Check it out.
