This place was next to our hostel and we ate there a couple of times. The meat is nicely cooked and the owners are very sweet people. Always ask for the dish of the day. We had the chicken there once which was delicious!

A very cheap option in San Telmo, with good and fast food. It's a really small place with no tables, but worth visiting if you are traveling on the cheap and want to avoid McDonald's

San Telmo
Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San
Telmo is defined by the tango, the dance that made
Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many
different cultures: a true child of immigration, much
like the city itself. Nowadays, it comes alive after
dark in the milongas (dance parties) attended by both
locals and visitors alike, who dance until the wee
hours of the morning. During the day, the antique
