“It’s an emblematic place in Santiago. It’s impossible not to start the week if you don’t come here,” says a man from Santiago inside the market, who also states: “The richest Milanese sandwiches in the country”.

31 blocks from the Único Madre de Ciudades stadium, at the Pipe kiosk they insist: “We have mayonnaise, which is one of the touches people like best, fresh all day. Abundant, abundant and rich.”

It took one minute and 23 seconds to enrage all of Tucumánwho started commenting on the post: “I don’t know, that… already the bread looks like fulero”; “FIFA pal ak (sic) told you”; “That bun is made from blackberry leaves”; “The milanga is Tucumana and it’s the best on the planet, not just in Argentina.” But it wasn’t just in the comments on the net.

“They are not well informed; the real milanga is eaten in Tucumán,” added Diego “Mocho” Viruel, organizer of the Milanesa Sánguche National Festival.

Some even use technical concepts: “It must be said: in Tucumán it is a tradition; in the province we use the best goods, we cut the vegetables accordingly. The special touch is given by the sangucheros, who already have experience in Tucumán,” he commented; I tried it in Santiago, but the bread has a lot of dough, the shell is very hard, and I would tell you that the bread is 60% Milanese,” Guido Bellardi, director of “A mí nooo,” told the newspaper.

In the other, everything is more deformed; ours is more famous and better. There are many people who come from other countries to try it,” remarked chef Santiago Gallardo Gazette.

Tempers are heated, but they can get worse when they discover that “Taste Atlas”, the interactive map created by a Croatian that shows which are the typical dishes to try in each country, has included the Milanese of Bariloche in the ranking of the 100 best dishes in the world .
