Good typical argentinian food, friendly service, and the typical atmosphere of an argentinian "bodegon" in La Boca: football everywhere, locals having good and loud conversations... and plus, good prices! Gotta love it!

La Boca
A neighbourhood defined by its immigrant roots, La

neighbourhood became the preferred settling area for
immigrants of a wide variety of origins, who ended up
living together in the conventillos. Thus, these
houses became a melting pot of different cultures and
traditions that birthed creations like tango and
