Choripan ($6.50)

Monday, June 14, 2010

Last week when we visited Tanguito, the Argentinian food truck on Fisherman's Wharf, the sun was brilliant, the tables permanently installed next to the truck were packed, and the owners were tuning the flat-screen television they'd hooked onto the front of the truck to ESPN just in time for the Uruguay-France game.

That probably means that all week, Tanguito is going to be the one of the best places in town to watch World Cup al fresco. And if you're going to watch soccer at an Argentinian street-food truck, you must order choripan, a favorite game-day street food in Buenos Aires (scroll down to the bottom of this "I Love Choripan" website to memorize the official choripan song).

The owners grill a split chorizo link until it's black-edged and smoky, then serve it on a toasted French roll with a mess of roasted peppers and caramelized onions. We were so distracted by the game that we forgot to ask for a spoonful of herb-garlic chimichurri sauce, but you shouldn't.

Tanguito 2850 Jones (at Beach), 577-4223.
