Chinatown, Buenos Aires

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.

  • Neighborhood with a nice initial arch, then shops with cachureos made in Chinese. Varioa auper with things to comor... If you're a bs ace, you can buy nice things to eat and cook. I don't see any more use. I went Monday 11 am and several shops were closed. There are places to eat Cantonese food and I think I saw a Thai. Nothing spectacular

  • Good for walking and observing interesting things! I recommend the Oriental grocery stores. In the refrigerator spart, you will find temakis and sushi of all kinds (including vegetarian options). You will also find a wide variety of dried mushrooms, sold in bulk and at a good price.
