Techado Negro

Cafe in El Chaltén

With local paintings on the wall, bright colors and a raucous, unkempt atmosphere in keeping with El Chaltén, this homespun cafe serves up abundant, good-value and sometimes healthy Argentine fare. Think homemade empanadas, squash stuffed with humitas (sweet tamale), brown rice vegetarian dishes, soups and pastas. It also offers box lunches.
