Chinatown, Buenos Aires

(2.7/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
Pass under the impressive arch with guardian dragons at the top and lions at its sides to enter Chinatown, packed with shops, restaurants, massage parlors, and acupuncture salons. Stroll down crowded streets and along the train tracks, lined with stores selling inexpensive clothes, purses, jewelry, toys, Samurai swords, and porcelain teapots, all made in China. Supermarkets offer typical Asian products like rice noodles, seaweed, dried seeds, tofu, wasabi, and soy sauce. If you get hungry, you can choose from a number of restaurants and fast food stalls.

  • We went for walks with my partner and we went to Chinatown, we buy things typical of the place, all new, you have to be willing to walk.

  • Noteworthy: Meals at restaurants, supermarkets with infinite variety of very good quality food. Negative. Street stalls with fried foods that give very ugly appearance and odor. Recommended to who likes that kind of food.

  • I was a Sunday a couple of hours, they are not many blocks away but there are different possibilities. Local to prove typical foods and others to purchase souvenirs. It's worth the time.
