Had a late lunch in the sun on one of the small balconies after a day strolling around the city. Best lunch we had in BA during our stay. Great atmosphere overlooking the plaza and wonderful food.

This was a last minute decision to eat on our last night in town since we were all gassed from walking and being in the sun. Fast service and friendly staff. Separate Spanish and English menus which worked out for our bad Spanish speaking group.

different cultures: a true child of immigration, much
