Café San Juan

Buenos Aires, Argentina

A casual dining spot with Spanish and Italian flair, which even has its own TV series. Chef Leandro ‘Lele’ Cristobal has won legions of fans for his hearty fare. Intimate and usually packed to the seams, try to grab a seat at this bodegón’s kitchen bar if you can. His focus on fresh homemade ingredients – think smoked aubergine and caramelised walnuts or rabbit pâté – and twists on local classics satisfies punters. Favourite dishes include oxtail served in a cast-iron skillet and bacon-stuffed partridge. Order the house red; it comes in a penguin jug.
