We really noticed the fact that most big cities have lots of different types of restaurants (Thai, Vietnamese, Chinese, Middle Eastern, etc) but Buenos Aires doesn't seem to. We were quite excited to see this restaurant just down the road from Plaza Dorrego. It's only...More

Of course, you need to visit Habibi. Buenos Aires is a very european city. You won't find turkish food or asian food. There a lot of chinese restos. That's all. Habibi is a place where I can order my favourite arabian dishes. Shawarma, babaganush. I...More

I'm used to go to arabic restaurants and this is far from being good. Either we were very unlucky that day or others have a random taste. It's pricy in comparison with gastronomic prices around the city. For salad, they served us half onion in...More

This place isn't all that much to look at, but the food is really good and it's close to the Plaza Dorrego without being right in the middle of it. The kebabs and stuffed grape leaves were both excellent, particularly the beef on the kebabs...More

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
