El Manto

Address: Costa Rica 5801 – Palermo

An air of mysticism surrounds this original restaurant that tries to recreate Armenia in the year 301 AD, when Christian religion was adopted. Dim lights, stone-grey walls and a rustic ceiling where bricks and beams can be seen make this place a true temple of cuisine celebrating Armenian traditions and culinary secrets. Among the dishes the vodka lamb shish kebab (Patagonian lamb marinated in vodka, peppers, tomatoes and onions, served with grilled tomatoes) and the pasha borek (phyllo pastry filled with feta and sardo cheese and cream over grilled tomatoes).
