The next time you’re in Argentina’s capital, here’s where—and what—to eat.

Travelers have long raved about Buenos Aires’s roster of European cafes and traditional parrillas, the latter of which serves some of the best steaks in the world. But until recently, there wasn’t much culinary diversity to speak of in this otherwise cosmopolitan destination.

In recent years, however, a new generation of restaurants offering flavors from Asia, the Middle East, and various corners of Latin America have added a hearty dose of multiculturalism to the city’s food scene; and local chefs are increasingly showcasing overlooked homegrown ingredients, redefining Argentine cuisine along the way. Adventurous eaters rejoice.
