Where to get street food in Buenos Aires

Something that frightens travelers a bit, is where to eat Street Food. In Buenos Aires or anywhere else. It is difficult to know the origin of the ingredients, and nobody wants to get sick. However, truth is they are usually fresh products that are bought (as ingredients) and sold (as meals) on the same day.

Furthermore it’s also truth that one can consume a product in a bad condition at any restaurant in the world.

So if you dare to put aside prejudices, here we give you recommendations on where to eat the best sandwiches Buenos Aires has to offer.

La Doña

Choripan Food Truck Carrito Costanera Sur

This food truck located in Costanera Sur, is the best in the area without a doubt.

If you visit the Costanera Sur (where Puerto Madero ends at its limit with the Río de la Plata) you will find many food trucks, the funny thing is that they are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

They all have the same proposal of sandwiches, but of course the qualities of the products are not the same.

You will find on the bar of this food truck that have an important amount of topings such as eggplants, lettuce, tomato, cucumbers, chimichurri, etc.

Something else to highlight about La Doña, is that it has a precious space under the trees, whose shadow is very grateful in the summer days.

Recommendation to order: choripan, bondiola sandwich, lomito sandwich.


Nuestra Parrilla

It is a historic “Parrilla al paso” of San Telmo.

It is quite an experience to visit this place. The opening and closing time of the place is always uncertain, which makes it even more Buenos Aires.

While in recent years it became a popular place for tourists, it still retains its usual customers, which are the neighbors of the area.

The aesthetics of this “Parrilla” is very characteristic of the less and less “Parrillas al paso” that remain in Buenos Aires

Recommendation to order: choripan, bondiola sandwich, vacio sandwich.
