Check out today’s City Paper for a useful World Cup drinking-and-eating guide — more or less in that order, heavy on beer specials — or find it online here.  But of the 32 countries competing in the World Cup, maybe only half have their national cuisines represented in the Washington area.

Where are the Uruguayan chivitos?  Is there nowhere to get a good Antipodean meat pie to go with a beer when Australia and New Zealand play?  Will I have to choose between Bosnian pleskavica and Austrian spaetzle when Slovenia take the fields?  Could the Netherlands make it to the finals during new-herring season without my ever having the chance to enjoy a plate of the raw little things during one of their matches?

As always, please offer up any suggestions or leads in the comments.
