If you think the Starbucks culture is the best way to idle the hours away in the US, watching el paseo, the stroll, in one of the countless cafe's in Buenos Aires will quickly put that thought to rest. No shelves of books lining the walls, no kitschy coffee mugs or bags of coffee on display for consumer consumption, Argentine cafés are just that -- small places to sit and enjoy a small cup of coffee and a snack while enjoying this part of city life.Quick Tips: Follow the dining times of Argentina so that you can be in the restaurants when the tables are full.

Cabaña Las Lilas

Restaurant | "Cabana Las Lilas"

This large, but not cavernous, restaurant delivers Argentine cuisine in a beautiful setting in Puerto Madero on the water.

You receive appetizers and sweets without asking, and the grilled meats and salads are as good as any guidebook tells you. Of all the restaurants I have been to in the 5 months that I have lived here to date, this one tops my list for great Argentine cuisine.

Sarki

Restaurant

This Middle-Eastern restaurant is in a setting with a group of wonderful city restaurants. The menu is varied with spectacular appetizers, including the smoothest fresh yogurt I've tasted, feta cheese and olives, dolmas, and hummus made to perfection. The main dishes and plates of rice are mellow, and the desserts of the region sublime. For a departure from the Argentine grill, try Sarki's.
