Mondongo Cultural



While in La Plata I stopped by this unconventional restaurant/bar called Mondongo Cultural. It serves as a meeting place for artists, and musicians with a full menu and a limited, yet nourishing wine list. One of the highlights for me was the local beer, a nice addition to any hot summer afternoon.

I’m struggling to find the right word to describe the venue. I want to say bohemian but that doesn’t sound right. It’s a welcoming youthful establishment with plenty of character that doesn’t take itself too seriously. It’s run by a young couple from Tucumán who have a relaxed vibe. There’s lots of art work on the wall and a room where musicians entertain.

Anyway, for what it’s worth — and please remember I lack credibility and don’t like to take pictures of food because I completely suck at it — I would recommend you check this joint (yes you read that word correctly) out. Just for the décor alone. I was there for lunch, but it doesn’t come alive until the evening. Obviously.

I had to take photos of the peanut things, ’cause I felt like it
