As you slowly inch your way up the congested Avenida Corrientes — the wide avenue that cuts through the middle of the small neighborhood of Chacarita — it is hard to imagine that this ‘barrio’ derived its name for the quechua for ‘farm’.

Although the neighborhood bustles with activity, open green spaces are still the main theme of the zona’s personality, with the long Parque Los Andes and Chacarita Cemetery taking up nearly half of the hood. Chacarita is largely overlooked for its popular neighbors like Palermo Hollywood to the north or Villa Crespo to the south. Here is a list of favorites, both old and new, of the best of history, art, food and drink that Chacarita has to offer.

This TRA guide trims the excess fat so you know exactly which cut to order and where.
Along the last ten months, Buenos Aires has seen the inauguration of around 50 gourmet fast food stores that have nothing to do with the large chains, beyond the fact that they share the star dish.

Yet, wine is steadily proving to be the ideal match for gourmet burgers, due to the sophisticated proposals and diversity of sensations that only wine can offer. This will be, then, the 2016 pairing in Argentina, no doubt about it!
