La Bataraza

Rawson 3889, Zona Norte, Buenos Aires 4711 6661

As the time of moving into downtown draws closer, I start going through the list of great restaurants recommended by friends and patients in Zona Norte. This cozy little corner restaurant came highly recommended by more than one person- and so it seems as I literally licked my plate squeaky clean.

Restaurant Critic: Just 2 blocks from the La Lucila train station, the place was crowded the moment it opened at 8pm. The ambiance cozy and small, the walls filled with fun drawings, and hints of creativity can be seen in this old-style atmosphere.

Food Critic: The menu is simple and homely, local dishes range from milanesas, fish of the day, pastas, to chicken pot pie, and grill dishes. Though the dishes seems simple, everything that came out of the kitchen were delicious and bountiful, reminding me of grandma’s cooking. I had one of the best ravioli: calabaza filling with a creamy delicious sauce over it- on my list to try-it-at-home recipe. The prices were affordable: 20 pesos ($4.50) for appetizers, 40 ($10.00) pesos for main.


  • ravioli with pumpkin filling
  • abundant dishes and superb flavors
  • affordable prices
  • neighborhood restaurant
  • great service
  • great fish and veggie options


  • cheesecake was okay, didn’t like the gelatin texture
  • chicken pot pie, the filling should be much creamier
