    You can taste your way through several variations of empañadas (including our favorite, humita, with creamy corn baked into a crisped salty-sweet crust) at this quirky joint. Read more

    I think Time Out should review the ratings here. Its far away from being one of the best empanadas in BA. Btw I ordered cheese and onion, where were the onions? Carne picante was just OK.Terrible wine

    A comida é só razoável. Não deixe eles saberem que você é brasileiro: eles deixam a carne passar do ponto, cantam sertanejo e o garçom grisalho faz piadas homofóbicas sobre futebol. E não é barato.

    Comida razoável, nada espetacular. Preços pra turista frequentado por brasileiros. Fuja do garçom grisalho e homofóbico (se você não for corinthiano). Ponto da carne: ao ponto é muito (!) bem passado
