Literary icon Jorge Luis Borges grew up on the same block as this pink-hued bar and store, which was one of his haunts. El Preferido is an old-school neighborhood bodega, where hanging hams and stacked cans of hearts of palm are integral to the décor. Come here for a cortado or early evening tapas such as braised tongue. A genuine gem that stands out from other newer establishments, Buenos Aires’ traditional vibe is still alive and well at this corner spot, which you can’t miss thanks to its façade.
