Barrio Chino (Chinatown)

Like many other major cities, Buenos Aires has its own Chinatown. Roughly the same size as the one found in London, it predominantly consists of restaurants, supermarkets and shops selling cheap asian tat. Not exclusively populated by the Chinese, there are also businesses run by Tawainese, Japanese and Thais. Interestingly, it is where most Argentinians go to buy “exotic” food, such as fresh fish, basmati rice and noodles.
