El Preferido Restaurant

Spanish food.

In the Palermo neighbourhood, on the corner of Guatemala and Borges Street, this restaurant caters to nostalgic travellers with its famous way of preparing its Spanish dishes. It is not the only in the city, as you will notice a great Mediterranean influence here, but it does live up to it’s name, which means ‘favourite’ in Spanish. It is divided into two parts, which both have the typical tavern atmosphere. On one side, entering through the corner door, is a cosy locale called ‘almacen’ (warehouse), filled with tall tables for those who wish to grab a snack. A visit here requires forward planning, as you will often find it full before lunchtime. On the other side is a more tranquil, traditional area, serving proper meals for lunch and dinner, with a predominantly Spanish menu, although it also offers some local dishes. Once you have taken your seat and ordered drinks, remember that the dishes here are made for sharing and that it is best to go early in the evening, to beat the crowds flocking here for its delicious, generous portions.
