Just in the heart of San Telmo, Plaza Dorrego, you can find this typical angertine bar. Perfect to rest after the crazy San Telmo street market on sunday. Quiet cheap, I really recommend you the "lomito completo" which is a complete sirloin sandwich.... mmm!! delicious
The US dollar can go a long way in Argentina, so if you're an middle-class American in Buenos Aires, you owe it to yourself to indulge in at least genuinely fancy dinner. Because, comparable restaurants in the states, you're getting a heck of a deal, even if it's a bit expensive by Argentine standards, which this place certainly is. But sitting amidst Casa Cruz's sleek decor and sexy atmosphere you can't help but feel important, powerful and downright suave.
Founded in 1858, Café Tortoni is the oldest coffee shop in the whole country. With a very rich history, it is visited at all times by intellectuals, politicians and artists.
Over the last couple years, this place has become one of the hottest steakhouses in Buenos Aires. Obviously, the meat here is spectacular, but what separates it from other area steakhouses are the numerous side dishes such as mashed pumpkin with raisins, beet purée and baked pearl onions in red wine. Despite it's trendiness, you can still get a massive meal for one for under $20 USD.
Traditional Kitchen. Great place!!
