We found Tango Argentina Food in St. Charles, Missouri. It is owned by two proud and hard-working Argentinean natives, Hector and Stella Aberastury.
One characteristic of them that makes this establishment a high-ranking restaurant is that they love their job.
They migrated to the U.S. in 1995 and could not return to Argentina to visit friends and family for 18 years. They worked hard to make and save money to raise their children, save for a trip to return home to visit and open their own business. Hector delivered newspapers for the St. Louis Post Dispatch while Stella worked for Cintas managing uniforms for employees at Ameristar Casino.
Interviewing this couple while they look back over their life and explaining their journey to live the American dream was inspirational.
They take considerable pride in the restaurant’s operation, illustrated by their health inspection scores that routinely hit 100%. In addition, it is the cleanest commercial kitchen that I have seen.
The Empanadas are made with authentic ingredients imported from Argentina, one of the most important being Pimenton, an original spice.
