Not just steak: eating in Buenos Aires

With its fne art of barbecuing hunks of meat, Italian heritage, ethnic treats and fve-star contemporary dining, Buenos Aires guarantees everyone will eat well, whatever the budget.
Ever-popular Cumaná in the Recoleta ditrict



This traditional corner restaurant with fne old-world atmosphere is an institution in the Recoleta neighbourhood. The menu is unpretensious and extensive, and offers something for everyone, from inexpensive combo plates to relatively unusual speciality dishes, such as marinated beef tongue (Vicente López 1900; mains from £3.50; 7am–1am daily).


Thanks to fair prices and quick service, this colourful Peruvian joint in the Congreso area is jam-packed at lunchtime with offce workers devouring plates of ceviche (seafood cured in citrus) and ajiaco de conejo (rabbit and potato stew). Also worth trying is the arroz chaufa (Peruvian fried rice), washed down with a tangy pisco sour (Hipólito Yrigoyen 1390; 12pm–4pm & 8pm–midnight Tue–Sun; mains from £2.50).
