WHY Good, honest Argentinean cooking and wines at modest prices.
WHAT This friendly Argentinean, with its comfortable booths and tasty, affordable Argentinean wines, serves well-prepared classics at more-than-reasonable prices: empanadas, matambre (rolled meat stuffed with vegetables and herbs), garlic fries, handmade pastas and such hearty entrées as grilled short ribs (great flavor but too chewy), skirt steak chimichurri (delicious) and grilled salmon.
WHO Everyone who’s anyone in Pasadena, often coming with friends, who then run into their friends.
