La Oveja Negra, in El Chalten, Argentina, stands out from the pack, as its name, “The Black Sheep,” suggests. Franco runs this establishment with a professionalism beyond his years. The food and drinks are excellent and the rustic, campy decor adds a playful touch. It’s a perfect place for a relaxed, epic dinner and drinks.
The delicious chorizo relleno—a unique sausage—appetizer, chop artesanal beers and Malbec wine, set up the main course, their famous table top mixed grill perfectly. Lamb chops, chicken, filet, skirt steak, kidneys, sausage, lamb stomach, intestine, and blood sausage are options we selected, along with a side of padillada (“grilled”) vegetables.
The salame de chocolate 🍫 is one of the most unique desserts we have ever enjoyed. No actual salami is used, only chocolate and nuts with a side of ice cream. It sounds straightforward, however the taste and appearance are anything but. Don’t visit El Chalten without a visit to La Oveja Negra, and do bring your appetite!
