- No.39 Latin America's 50 Best Restaurants 2019
Scouring Argentina for endemic ingredients, chef Fernando Rivarola works with small producers to unearth ‘curious’ proteins such as llama or caiman for El Baqueano, a regular in Latin America’s 50 Best. A recent revamp has modernised the Argentinian establishment, and an impressive wine cellar is now a focal point in its new residence in Salta. Highlights from the eight-course seasonal tasting menu include llama carpaccio with three-coloured quinoa, and falso bife de chorizo, a deceptive yet eye-catching fish dish. In lieu of pairings, ask to see the natural wine list compiled by sommelier Gabriela Lafuente.
