I thought it might be interesting to set out and find some decent pizza in La Boca.

A hodge-podge of cuisines! Till Bistro, Marcelo T. de Alvear 2321, Recoleta – Cute little place that I’ve walked by many a time, and heard reasonably good things about.

Monkey Burgers, Av. Luis M. Campos 92, Palermo – On a strange little stretch of this avenue, away from pretty much anything else, but this one came highly recommended.
