Tel: 54 11 4804 2909's insider take:

Enrique Baudonet's inviting hole-in-the-wall brims with the rustic flavor of the Argentine outback. Its interior features sepia-toned photos of old San Juan and brawny hanging hams. There's a menu full of robust local fare (including the Andean hominy stew known as locro), but the main reason to drop in is for empanadas. The little savory half-moon-shaped pies constitute one of Argentina's national dishes. Truth be told, B.A. isn't much of an empanada town—they're generally associated with the north and west of the country—and take-out chains have lowered the overall quality of these culinary miracles. But El Sanjuanino makes great empanadas to go or to stay—washed down, of course, with ice-cold Quilmes, the Bud of Argentina. Choice varieties include the customary carne suave, carne picante (more zesty than fiery), and salty-sweet corn.

Open Tuesdays through Sundays noon to 4 pm and 7:30 pm to 12:30 am.
