Although he also admits some flaws: "Keep in mind that the service can come at a snail's pace and some places only accept cash." And he points out that the prices and exchange rates of Argentine pesos are constantly changing, but that most people who carry dollars will find that restaurants "are affordable."

The Talas of the Entre Ríos. The publication describes with astonishment the large amount of meat sold in this famous grill in the suburbs: "The Talas del Entrerriano will roast (and sell) more than 70 beef ribs; That's in addition to hundreds of chorizos, black puddings and other grilled dishes."

Strange Brewing. Eater explains that in recent years the city of Buenos Aires has experienced a craft beer boom of epic proportions.

Las reservas son esenciales”, advierte Eater.

"Those who say that New York is the city that never sleeps have never been out partying in Buenos Aires," says Eater, suggesting refueling for a night out with a burger at the Flour Store in Almagro. He says his steak eye burger and freshly baked bun is superb and recommends being very punctual or resigning yourself to standing in line.

Humahuaca 3853, Almagro.

Don Ignacio

According to Eater, this place is "the king of Milanese". He claims that the portions are huge and the prices are cheap. "This is Argentine comfort food at its finest," he says.

"Chef Tomás Kalika's signature Jewish restaurant recreates Ashkenazi, Sephardic, Israeli and Mediterranean dishes using fresh ingredients and modern techniques that intrigue and evoke nostalgia. Bone-in pastrami will leave you completely baffled," says Eater.

The Conga

"Over time, Peruvian immigrants have helped shift the traditional Argentinian palate toward specific flavors and spices," Eater says, claiming that La Conga is characterized by its "ridiculously large portions." He recommends the roast chicken, the papa a la huancaína (potatoes in cheese sauce), the chaufa (fried rice), the ají de gallina (chicken stew) and the lomo saltado.

La Rioja 39, Once.

Rome del Abasto

In this case, Eater tells the story of this remarkable bar, rescued and added by the duels of the vermouth bar La Fuerza and Los Galgos. He recommends trying the chicken and beef empanadas, followed by a wood-fired pizza (with a thick crust) and accompanying everything with the house vermouth with soda.

Anchorena 806, Abasto.

The Kitchen

"La Cocina en Recoleta bakes a handful of empanada flavors sealed with careful repulgue folds," Eater describes. He recommends the chicken and the Pikachu with cheese, onion and slightly spicy red pepper. He also clarifies that this house has a second branch hidden in the Boston Gallery, in the heart of downtown Buenos Aires.

Av. Pueyrredón 1508, Recoleta.

Caren Confectionery

"Crumb sandwiches, a local obsession comparable to English tea sandwiches and Italian tramezzini, are often associated with celebration. Making a crumb sandwich is an art and Caren Confectionery in Recoleta has maintained the same artisanal quality for more than 50 years," says Eater. Among the varieties, he mentions: ham and cheese; chicken and celery; salami and cheese; and ham, hearts of palm and golf sauce.

"This corner bistro near the Recoleta cemetery has become the neighborhood's go-to spot for those looking to eat and drink well. Ideal for a relaxed dinner, Roux serves fresh seafood dishes that are a counterpoint to the local lifestyle that is more carnivorous," says Eater.

Los Galgos Bar. "Los Galgos revives the city's nostalgic café culture for the modern era. Located on a revitalized corner in Courts that dates back to the 1930s, the café serves a well-made cortado in addition to solid food throughout the day," says Eater, noting that "Toasted ham and cheese sandwiches entice courthouse workers for breakfast."

Aramburu. "Tucked away in the opulent Pasaje del Correo in Recoleta, two-Michelin-starred chef-owner Gonzalo Aramburu's namesake restaurant serves one of the last remaining tasting menus in the city," Eater describes, suggesting requesting a table overlooking the kitchen to watch the chefs in action.

El Gauchito. Eater points out that there's something special about this small empanada joint in San Telmo, named after Gauchito Gil. They stand out for the fried meat empanadas.
