GARZON, Uruguay ( TheStreet) -- It's called Garzon, a dusty four-road town in the middle of the Uruguayan pampas that wouldn't look out of place in a John Ford movie if not for the carloads of foodies and bohemian travelers.Getting to South America's foodie capital is hardly an easy task. The closest airport is in Punta del Este, Uruguay, which can be reached from Buenos Aires or the nation's capital, Montevideo. From there, you must travel on a series of highways until you get to the 165-kilometer marker, where you'll see an unlit sign that points toward Garzon. You'll drive on a gravel road and pass a cemetery to get there.
