La Tasca del Paseo: "Very Popular Cafe" Córdoba Restaurant Tip by Wade123

Córdoba Restaurants: 16 reviews and 21 photos

This place was really busy at lunchtime. Maybe the AC helped because it was really nasty out and no one was sitting at the outside tables. It's located behind the Catedral on the pedestrian mall Obispo Trejo. It had a full menu as well as lots of sandwiches and lower priced items on the 'menu of the day'. Most people were into the sandwiches and cold drinks. Despite the crowd, service was good. A sign said, "Bathroom for patrons only", but that didnt stop a wandering nun from bopping in.
The sandwiches seemed costly, but pretty good.
Turkey sandwich 9.5P/$3.22, thinly sliced steak sandwich 7.5P/$2.54, water 2.7P/$.92,
and a large beer 4P/$1.35. Total lunch for two was 23.5P/$8.00USD.
A pricey lunch but very popular with locals. I believe it was closed on Sunday as were many many restaurants/cafes around the Plaza San Martin area.

Favorite Dish: The shear variety of sandwiches was a delight after having ham and cheese all over Argentina and Uruguay. I'll never look at ham and cheese quite the same way again after the mass of it I ate down there.
A bit off the topic, but the Argentinian Lomito is similar to the Uruguayan Chivito. Both are basically beef, ham, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, fried egg, mayonaise, etc on a big bun. I had one Lomito and one Chivito so I don't claim to be an expert. However, I liked the Chivito better. Also, either one (in my opinion remember) is better than a hamburger. 'Nuff said!

Address: Obispo Trejo
Directions: Behind the Catedral on Obispo Trejo just off of Dean Funes/Rosario de Santa Maria pedestrian mall. Right in El Centro by Plaza San Martin.
