This place is not a genuine sushi restaurant. My husband and I ordered the lunch menu with salmon as our fish of choice. When the sushi arrived, it was mainly cream cheese fillings and very small pieces of salmon on some of the pieces. An...More

We arrived late to Shokudo on a Sunday, when they were busy. We were warned that here was a 30 minute delay on sushi. Accepting this, we ordered and waited. They brought the drinks along quickly. Then we waited. And waited. And waited. Eventually, after...More

I had a sushi plate and a soup. Both dishes were fresh. The prices are slightly above the average prices in Buenos Aires, but it completely paid off.

San Telmo
Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San
Telmo is defined by the tango, the dance that made
Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many
different cultures: a true child of immigration, much
like the city itself. Nowadays, it comes alive after
