WHY Excellent and authentic Argentinean classics: empanadas, milanesa, white fish, huge platters of sizzling meat, mashed potatoes and bread pudding, all at more than reasonable prices.
WHAT At this quirky café in the middle of a deli and meat market, patrons cheer their soccer team on TV or simply kibitz while munching on sandwiches slathered with herby chimichurri or on a grilled steak from the meat department, where every cut for a good parillada is sold. After your lunch or dinner, you can pick up pastries, tortas, cold cuts and upscale Latin American groceries from the market.
