Havanna: "Yummmm! Alfajores!" Buenos Aires Restaurant Tip by missbutler

Buenos Aires Restaurants: 736 reviews and 762 photos

This is a chain of shops that sell what seems to be Argentina's most popular brand of alfajores (dulce de leche sandwich cookie covered in a merengue glaze or chocolate). Make sure you drop in an try one on your first day... you'll be mad if you spend one afternoon in Buenos Aires without this little treat.

Favorite Dish: Beside alfajores, Havanna sells other wonderful sweets -- my favorite are barritas --little squares of firm dulce de leche covered in chocolate

Address: branches all over the city
Price Comparison: about average
Price: less than US$10
Rating: 5
Theme: Dessert
