Idioms: talk in “Santafelandia”
“ Please bring me a carlitos and a liso” is a typical phrase that would only make sense at a confectionery shop in Santa Feprovince. In the rest of the country, you probably have no idea what is being asked for. This is because, in the country, there are different idioms that only apply in specific areas, and Santa Fe is not the exception.
The famous so-called carlitos is what is known as roasted, but with ketchup, and in some cases with tomato. It is a very popular sandwich in cities such as Rosario, Santa Fe and Rafaela, but anywhere in the Santafecino territory a waiter will understand what is refers with these words.
So popular and common is the Carlitos that, in the city of Rosario, this year took place the first Regional Championship of Carlitos in the Patio Market, a must-see event for lovers of sandwich.
On the other hand, Santa Fe is one of the beer provinces par excellence along with Córdoba, as both have many breweries of national distribution. Argentines consume an average of 45 liters of beer per head per year, which transforms it into the drink most consumed alcohol in our country, according to a report by the organization of Cerveceros Argentinos.
In the city of Santa Fe the beer is ordered as smooth, which is served in a smooth glass (hence its name) and is unpasteurizedbeer, so it is lighter and without much gas. The smooth should always come cold and accompanied by some copetín.
In Rosario there are no plain ones, but if you talk about porrón you refer to the liter beer and not the glass of beer, as happens in Buenos Aires and other provinces.
So, if you go for a walk by Santa Fe, do not forget to ask your carlitos with a plain. Know the idioms and local customs helps us to know how to order to eat better .
