One last chance to sample my favourite cafe in BsAs

If you go to BsAs, you should drop in to the Bar Paulin for a quick lunch. A real "local" place, just a tiny hole in a wall place, but the most amazing service you'll ever see anywhere. These guys are so fast they will make your head spin. Don't try and catch the plates as they skitter down the foot wide bar, yours will arrive right in front of you eventually. You are given a ticket when you go in, there are no tables, only a bar and you may have to wait to be seated. Then you just order your meal from quite a selection of lunch time fare, and when you've finished, get the person that served you (he won't be far away as you'll see) to mark your ticket which you then take to the caja at the door to pay as you go out.

New York had its Soup Nazi, and Buenos Aires has Paulin, a tiny but jumping restaurant downtown.
