“The empanadas are amazing!!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2012

After reading a couple of the reviews in here and in our pocket guide, we decided to venture to 1816 to see if the empanadas Tucumanas (sp?) were as good as people told us. Well, they were probably the best we tried in our time in BsAs. We also like the ones with ham and cheese and sugar.

They were really full and crispy and not fried. The service was great and since we were staying close by, we ate there twice before we left and even took a couple of empanadas with us to eat at the airport while we were waiting to go through security. The service was great too and although I am not a native speaker, they were very patient with me and even gave us recommendations for other places to eat..Highly recommended!!!

It was walking distance from my hotel. The meal was very good and the price was reasonable.

“Get your empanadas tucumanas here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2009

In addition to the better known (but somewhat less local) culinary treasures of Argentina such as bbq, gelato and pizza, definitely do not miss out on Argentinean empanadas. This is a good place at which to calibrate your taste-buds to the traditional empanada in the style of the Tucuman province. Other regional varieties to look out for are the Salteña, Cuyana and the traditional style of Buenos Aires cafés, which could be called Criolla or Porten(h)a.
