Caleb Thornton-Shaw ditches beef in search of something more exotic at Los Infernales, where street food meets wild animals. After an enthusiastic response, owners Mariana, Federico, and Claudio decided to open Los Infernales restaurant in San Telmo. The name Los Infernales is steeped in history and this is why they decided on this name. Los Infernales were an army of brave gauchos, who defended the northern border from the advance of Peru. Each meal has history attached to it and really is a journey between Argentina’s precolonial times to modern day street food.

Independiente improved in the second half with Emiliano Rigoni participating in the best moves. However, Chapecoense almost took the lead in the 64th minute with a long shot that deflected on defender Nicolás Figal and went over the bar.

Wednesday, September 21, 2016 Foreign sector deficit keeps raising worriesArgentina is still struggling to balance cash inflows and outflows despite the recent devaluation, the latest report from the INDEC statistics bureau showed yesterday. The country posted a current account deficit of US$2.7 billion in the second quarter of 2016, the bureau said yesterday, with financial inflows — mostly debt — compensating for a net loss elsewhere. Overall, US$2.6 billion were wired abroad under different forms of return of investment, an amount very close to the overall current account deficit. The current account is the broadest measure of a country’s foreign transactions encompassing trade, services, and an array of financial flows, including interest payments. Now, even after stabilizing the macroeconomy we are depending on debt to keep the economy a float,” Castiñeira argued.

Tuesday, September 20, 2016 Opposition targets Malcorra over MalvinasLawmakers call for ‘withdrawal’ of support for UN bid, as minister faces showdown in CongressThe government came under sustained heavy fire from opposition lawmakers and even some allies yesterday after it was accused of weakening the strength of Argentina’s sovereignty claim over the disputed Malvinas Islands in its recent accord with the United Kingdom. The agreement seeks to pave the way for more flights from the mainland to the Malvinas and the exploration of hydrocarbons. But the rapprochement came increasingly under threat yesterday after a fierce opposition backlash gained momentum, even as the government downplayed the move. Key members of various opposition groups including the Victory Front (FpV), Renewal Front (FR) and Workers Leftist Front (FIT) united to slam the agreement. “The declarations signed between Argentina and the UK over the Malvinas Islands and approved by the Executive must be sent to Congress urgently,” a resolution released by the main opposition bloc said.
