This is acknowledged for serving Puchero a typical Argentinian dish. I liked it, but unfortunately the red blood sausage, one of the components of this dish was old and damaged the whole plate once together. After, I put it aside, then, the food was good.

As part of the historic quarter of Buenos Aires,
Montserrat is defined by the historical events that
took place there and the landmarks that have stood the
