Saigón Noodle Bar

Vietnamese noodle dishes might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think about dining out in the Argentine capital, but you are certainly going to miss out if you don't visit one of the Saigón Noodle Bars. The charming rustic atmosphere transports you (and your tastebuds) far away to the other side of the world. To stay faithful to Argentina, pick a dish with beef. The cocktails are amazing, too.


The first thing that pops into people's minds when thinking of a typical Argentinian dish is certainly steak. The whole country is famous for its juicy and flavorful steaks from grass-fed Pampas cattle. "Parrilla", meaning both steakhouses and the grill itself is key to the country's cuisine and culture, but be sure to explore other culinary trends during your visit. The popular "bodegones", or neighbourhood eateries, serve meat, pasta, fish, pizza, and many other kinds of food. A large number of new restaurants are opening regularly, bringing a larger variety of international specialities (i.e Asian, French, Italian and South American) to the dining scene in Buenos Aires. However, let's not forget about the most important and symbolic national street food, the "choripán", the ubiquitous grilled chorizo sandwich.
