Buenos Aires for a 22 yr old starving American

Visiting our daughter next month in BA (Recoleta), she has been there since Jan and is teaching English and is on a VERY tight budget. Food has been a struggle, she misses decent fruits and veggies, sushi, even decent chicken! Beef, beef and more beef is getting tiresome. We want to treat her to some great places when we are there. We of course want to try the local stuff (parrilla, BA pizza, empanadas, etc), but am specifically looking for recs for other types of places, esp fish and sushi. Quite frankly, some "American" type places, but not Hard Rock or Mickey Ds! Thanks for any suggestions!

  1. When our daughter was there a couple of years ago, one of her favorite restaurants - and ours - was Cumana. Inexpensive, nice atmosphere, wonderful empanadas y mas. We also went to a Peruvian place with great ceviche and other sea food - i think it was Chan Chan.

    1. I'm wondering about some of the puertas cerradas. We really enjoyed the ones that we went in, and the food was wonderful. Prices were great as well.
