Argentinian street food is popping up in Denver in new ways. Carne, which serves meaty sandwiches like lomitos (with grilled pork), vacios (with flank steak) and choripan (with sausage), just opened in the former home of El Tazumal at 258 Santa Fe Drive. The small cafe also serves empanadas, fries and a few other sandwich options. And La Rumba Choripan is coming to Latin American nightclub La Rumba in the Golden Triangle, offering sausage sandwiches, charcoal-grilled meats, empanadas and arepas. The eatery's food truck of the same name is already out on the streets, often serving comida Argentina outside the Stampede in Aurora.
