    How Do You Spell G-U-T-B-O-M-B in Spanish?

    Spotted in Valparaiso, Chile: chorrillana at local favorite greasy spoon J Cruz. This mess of fries, chunks of steak, onions and melting cheese is like Quebec poutine's fatter, sexier and sluttier cousin. Not for the prudish nor the faint of...

    It's Izakaya Week
