Cheap Restaurants in Buenos Aires

Some of the best restaurants in Buenos Aires are also the cheapest; like most big cities, this one is a culinary delight with great eating options that don't require breaking the bank in order to satisfy both your taste buds and your belly. Whether you're a budget-conscious traveler or staying at the Four Seasons, giving a few of these cheap-and-cheerful places a try is an ideal way to get to know a few of the local customs. Remember, red meat is the name of the game in Argentina, and North Americans and Europeans will be shocked to find out that getting a decadent slab of beef served up costs little more than a cup of coffee or a liter of beer. Add a bottle of quite drinkable red wine from Argentina's Andean wine region (in and around the province of Mendoza) to wash things down and you've got a stellar meal option for one, two, or a group, at prices pleasing to all. Whether you are a fluent speaker or your Spanish level is limited to greetings, the word 'parrilla' - Argentinian term for steakhouses - is a must for any visitor to Buenos Aires. Parrillas are a dime a dozen in Buenos Aires, and the best bet for budget dining and the easiest way to soak up authentic, no-frills local culture. Every neighborhood in the city has its fair share of parrillas, the local favorite pick for eating out. The most pocket-friendly option is the type that has a counter facing out onto the street and, if you're lucky, a few stools for bellying up to the bar. Such eateries are also likely to have their regulars, characters sure to liven up your dining experience. Aside from the steak and wine routine, Buenos Aires offers local favorites like deep-dish pan pizza, empanadas, Mexican tacos, and Middle Eastern cuisine.
