Although this dish originated in Italy, it has been enthusiastically adopted throughout Argentina, and Don Ignacio is one of the great practitioners of the art of preparing as many as 30 different versions. For those not familiar with milanesa, it's a chicken or beef cutlet, pounded flat, breaded and deep fried. It's the toppings that make the dish, with each variety having different cheeses, ham, vegetables and other ingredients added. Served with handmade chips (fries), it's a filling, comforting meal. Don Ignacio serves every variety you can imagine. The portions are large but inexpensive, as well as delicious, which makes this restaurant very popular, indeed. Reservations are suggested, particularly on the weekends.
