Top choice argentine in Recoleta & Barrio Norte

This long-running, cozy little joint has some of the cheapest food in Recoleta, attracting both penny-pinching locals and thrifty tourists. Order spicy empanadas, tamales or locro (a spicy stew of maize, beans, beef, pork and sausage). Many take their food to go – Recoleta’s lovely parks are just a couple of blocks away.
