Here you’ll find the best Northern Argentinean cuisine, or the Argentinean version of soul food. Stick with a stew; all of them are full of sauce, spice and flavor. One of the house specialties, if you’re willing to try it, is the mondongo, a savory stew made from big chunks of tripe simmering in a beef broth with assorted vegetables. (I’ve tried it, and I promise it’s spectacular!) This place is particularly inexpensive, too.
