Awesome restaurant for Argentine style meat cuts, ambiance and Malbec. Super cool manager from Rosario, best entrana outside of Argentina and great provoleta. A must go for serious meat lovers. It was called Malbec on the front, not Ushuaia. Awesome place, meat, wines and people.

I had the 12oz hangar steak. It was soft and perfectly cooked and served with a delicious plate of grilled vegetables.

roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa
Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller
