I think the best beef I had in Buenos Aires was in El Pobre Luis. The service was good, the waiters were kind, the wine was good and the price was ok. It was a great choice.

As one of the main commercial hubs of Buenos Aires,
Belgrano has something for everyone. The myriad of
shop windows in Cabildo Ave. will draw you in, but it
is Chinatown — an area of no more than two square
blocks — which will keep you hooked. Crowned by an
ornate arch marking its entrance and filled with small
stores packed to the brim, it is a place where colour
and scent emanate from every corner, particularly
