Visiting the King of FireThe undisputed king of the fire in Argentina is Francis Mallmann, and this is one of his most renowned restaurants. With all sorts of fires going on in the background, there are all sorts of meats cooked in all sorts of methods. The real showstopper here, though, is the massive cut of prime rib which comes served on the bone in a theatrical arrival that makes everyone else on the restaurant floor turn and stare with envy. Big enough for two but delicious enough that you will gobble it all up without a moment's pause. The knowledgeable sommelier will help you pair it with a good malbec. This is why you came to Argentina.
