Argentine beef in a French restaurant

I’m at Brasserie Petanque, Buenos Aires, in 2007, with my Beef Bourguignon:

Even better was Lomo Roll Dashi, a Japanese-Argentine dish, from the Dashi chain of sushi restaurants. Thinly sliced moist filleted beef from the Pampas, wrapped around spinach, oozing melted cheese, blended with mushroom, rice and onion.

I don’t know why it was taken off the menu. Maybe someone thought it didn’t belong in a sushi restaurant. It was worth crossing an ocean and two continents.

Brasserie Petanque also had this …

… though not everyone in South America was as sentimental about beef.

‘Meat is Murder.’
