El Sanjuanino information
This long-running, cozy little joint probably has the cheapest food in Recoleta, attracting both penny-pinching locals and thrifty tourists. Sit either upstairs or downstairs (in the basement) and order spicy empanadas, tamales or locro (corn and meat stew). The curved brick ceiling adds to the atmosphere, but many take their food to go – Recoleta’s lovely parks are just a couple of blocks away.
