Argentinean "al disco" cooking?


Hey all. Just came here as part of the Chowhound exodus (was fed up, read an article on the disaster, found this!)

Anyway, have a friend from Argentina here in LA who is craving a local foodstuff. He’s from Mendoza, and they call it “al disco”. They basically cook stews, meats, etc. in these large metal disks that come from heavy farming equipment. Here is a pic:

Does anyone know if there are any Argentinean places in LA that prepare food like this?



I cannot help you w/ your question, but welcome to FTC!

Yes, I’ve seen this in Mendoza part of California… i mean Argentina


This place might know - and they have a small resto also. They’re in south bay.
