Barrio Chino Buenos Aires is a cornucopia of sights, sounds, flavors, smells and kitcshy fun.
A great place for knick knacks, gifts, colorful random objects for any occasion. Get that long pencil you’ve been looking for. Local TV got you scared about crime? They´ve got swords yo! Be that guy and give your friend´s new baby a stylin Chinese giddup.
Street food! Finally! Cats lining up for these sweet snacks. Try the bean paste one for something more exotic.
Lacking some spice in your life? Getting bored of the Porteño diet? Hit one of the big super markets for some seriously different flavors.
Don’t forget the starch balls.
Food tip. Go where the Chinese are eating, and at the restaurant, see if you can get the waitress to bring you the dish that the locals order. The Argentine Chinese food can be somewhat tame and dumbed down.
Zen and the art of Barrancas de Belgrano.
Barrio Chino is easy to get to. Subway D line to Juramento, then walk torwards the river until you reach the bus and train terminal Barrancas de Belgrano. There, the first street to your left is Arribeños. Thats where the fun starts.
