Fusing Patagonian lore with a sophisticated palate and reasonable prices, Mamma Gaucha could please the fussiest road warrior. Cane ceilings and whitewashed barn-board walls create a down-home setting. Start with fresh-mint lemonade, organic wine or a pint of La Tropera. The mainstays are clay-oven pizzas, but the homemade pastas and salad bowls featuring local produce are just as worthy.
Those with wheels could venture to its sister outlet and brewery, Casa Tropera, on the outskirts of town.
