El Mazacote

If you are willing to get away from the tourist area of San Telmo, this is a very good option.

Located in the neighborhood of Monserrat, this pizzeria remains the same as when it first opened back in 1981. Even some of its clients seem to have been caught in time.

If you have the opportunity, eat at the bar and see the dynamics between waiters, cooks, all staff. Far from using systems that include screens, tablets or any technology to register the order, the staff seems to communicate by telepathy.

The waiter approaches the bar, it seems that he recites his order on the air, all the rest of the staff records it. But while they keep talking with their customers, prepare orders and continue cooking. Then the order is perfect (no errors due to system crashes).

Recommendation to ask: fainazzeta, fugazzeta rellena, muzzarella. Dessert: flan with dulce de leche and cream.
