|Empanada de carne|
What's the one dish that Argentines miss the most when living abroad? Well, if you talk to Maximiliano Alvarez of Fiorito, there's too many to choose from:
mollejas (sweetbreads), provoleta cheese with chorizo, milanesas, and empanadas, just to name a few. Fair enough. But when we press harder, he has the most to say about the empanadas, which are derived from his father's recipe:
"He used to make it with hanger steak, cutting the meat himself and he'd put in hardboiled egg and olives, but people here [in Miami] didn't like that so we took it out."
While Fiorito's may not be the biggest restaurant (they seat about 70), nor the one with the most LED screens (two), if you want to have one of the most emblematic foods of Argentina, surrounded by passionate locals rooting for their madre patria, then this is the place to watch the Argentina-Netherlands game at 4 p.m. today.
