Here's a roundabout way to get your vegetables: inside matambre ($10 per pound; my two slices were comped by the proprietor). The name of this Argentinean dish conflates the words "mata hambre," loosely, "kill hunger." Lots of carrot, and a little red and green pepper, can of course do only so much to quiet your appetite; it's the rolled flank steak and hardboiled egg that finish the job.
Though the owners of this grocery hail from Mexico — have a look at the refrigerated shelves, which feature a dozen brightly gleaming salsas and other condiments — the meat counter is run by a fellow from Argentina. Given the local demographics, over the years he's trained himself to prepare Mexican charcuterie, too, notably a ruddy, chunky blood sausage that you'd never mistake for morcilla.
