All things San Telmo | El Desnivel + CSJ La Cantina | The Lost Asian

Let’s do a San Telmo food stroll together shall we ? 

El Desnivel

Defensa 855, San Telmo, Buenos Aires 4300 9081

  1. don’t get tempted in ordering those choripans when entering
  2. gaze fondly at the dusty memorabilia while waiting for your food
  3. scoop those chimichurri sauce generously onto your food
  4. ignore the long listed menu and order the empanadas, a complete salad, fries, and bife de chorizo
  5. walk out with a full stomach and a full wallet

this big juicy empanda

 Rivas Cafe

Estados Unidos 302, San Telmo, Buenos Aires 4361 5539

  1. feel fancy and sexy just sitting in this beautiful establishment
  2. order a coffee, or a drink to aid digestion while passing time
  3. check out Stand-up Comedy Tuesday nights
  4. careful. The food never lives up to the beautiful ambiance, but that is up to your wallet to decide

San Telmo Verde

Peru 677, San Telmo, Buenos Aires

Meghan from Jueves a la Mesa has been dying to show me this store. On the way, Pick Up The Fork and I coincidentally bump heads- or more so with my petite height- I bumped into her warm bosoms. We ventured all together, and it was love at first sight. Go every Friday (10-18:00) and gather your organic goods. FYI: I’m in love with their grass fed cured meat.

 Cafe San Juan “La Cantina”

Chile 474, San Telmo, Buenos Aires 4300 9344

Verdict ? Good enough. 

Mr. San Juan should give more gusto to his new establishment. Everyone might love to be a part of this Argentine’celebrity restaurant, but I want to be left craving more instead of applauding his very cool logo and serve wares. 

  1. the space is modern-chic: high ceiling, white decor, booth, great natural light, and THE CSJ artists-tattoo-bearing service
  2. clean and small menu: 6 tapa selections are about 50 pesos, 2 raviolis, 5 pastas, 1 fish, and 3 main entree selections are from 70 and up
  3. open at nights during weekdays; middays during weekends
  4. the best dish: the faina breads with confit rabbits and onions
  5. mushroom raviolis and tiramisu-it-up

the beautiful (north american-like) space
