A tiny Argentinian restaurant serving up an impressive variety of local specialities, including a dozen varieties of empanadas.
La Porteña – slang for ‘a woman from Buenos Aires’ – is a tiny restaurant decorated in wood, metal and brick, which seats no more than 12 at bar tables and a small counter. Fortunately, its authentic Argentinian dishes – fresh, homemade and generous – are also available to take away.
The lunch menu is priced at €14, not bad considering all it includes: a glass of wine (or beer), two enormous empanadas (from a selection of about a dozen recipes), a salad and a dessert. For dinner, choose from chipacitos (cheesy breads, five for €3), provolone fondue sprinkled with chimichurri (€6), empanadas served with salsa and a small salad (€4), pascualinas (spinach tarts made with egg and cheese), or an assortment of tapas (€7-€12).
Here you can while away an evening sampling from a range of small, seasonal dishes, tempered with good wine and beer, in a genuine, friendly atmosphere.
