Pedro Telmo – Good Cooking in San Telmo

We’ve been eating out a lot since we arrived, mainly at places which have come highly recommended by guidebooks or locals. Great parrillas, Peruvian cuisine, famous pizzerias. But that doesn’t mean we’re skipping the less well-known places entirely! This past week, after a long day of exploring the city, we sat down inside Pedro Telmo, on the western side of the San Telmo Market.

Pedro Telmo empanadas in Buenos Aires

We ordered a couple empanadas, which were delicious, and also enjoyed their heartier meals, such as home-cooked lasagna and pizzas. With posters of Carlos Gardel and soccer teams on the walls, and wonderfully sweet ladies working both behind and in front of the bar, Pedro Telmo is the down-to-earth kind of establishment that abounds in Buenos Aires.

What’s your favorite neighborhood joint to get a quick bite, or take a short break?

    These are great photos of Pedro Telmo. We loved popping by for a quick unfussy bite when we weren’t in the mood for cooking at home. Always a great atmosphere.

    Great photos of one of our favourite places in San Telmo. The sweetest ladies ever.

    Keep up the good work, you’re capturing the city I live in better than I ever could.

    Happy to hear that we are not the only fans. We actually stopped by there again and tried the Lasagna! It was incredible. We have to go back one more time for their pizza.

    And the ladies really make that place! Love them too!
