The Buenos Aires neighborhood of San Telmo is home to an attractive Mexican bar and restaurant: Virgen. With an aesthetic that dazzles and traditional cuisine that stands out for its modern touches, its gastronomic proposal stands out for its innovative fusions, such as guacamole with flambéed watermelon, octopus tacos or Mexican lasagna.
