Ended up eating here at random, and had a great experience! The food was fantastic, big portions and good service. It is a tiny restaurant, but they have many options, including delicious vegetarian and vegan ones. Will definitely come back!

This was the best meal we had during our stay in Buenos Aires. The arepa with slow-cooked pork and papas fritas had me feeling like I was back in Ecuador again. The food was so great I was saying "mmmmmm!" after every bite, even after...More

Mercadito Latino is a delightful, quaint little place. You almost get the impression of the kitchen being a private one. Very friendly service, delicious food and fantastic drinks.

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
