For unique, delicious, and varied eats on a budget, look no further than El Bolsón’s outdoor market, or feria artesanal, open from 10 am on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. From Belgian waffles with assorted toppings, empanadas and sandwiches and frittatas galore, and an abundance of fresh fruit, this is the place to be.

When brunch time begins to melt into lunchtime, and hunger strikes, there’s only one thing to do: head down Avenida Belgrano to La Salteñita for empanadas. Far from the standard fillings of the average Argentinian empanada, these flaky pockets have fillings as creative as orange juice, ham and pineapple, or cheese and trout, and they’re all made to order.

This entirely vegan restaurant is family owned and is open for lunch Monday to Friday in a lovely garden setting. Try a tasty and healthy option like the pumpkin and courgette pie, a salad with lots of toppings, couscous or rice, or a plate of courgette ‘noodles’ with cashew sauce.
