Fodor's Expert Review Munich Recoleta

$$$ Recoleta Argentine

This convivial place looks like a relic of another era—located along a strip filled with casual eateries, it has white tablecloths draping the tables, waiters clad in black vests, and managers in tuxes. The decor is old-school, with coats of arms and mounted animal heads hanging over the dining room. The food is classic porteño, prepared with a flair. The sizzling steaks are delicious, though they tend to be close to well done regardless of how they're ordered. At lunch the not-to-be-missed dish is the revuelto gramajo, a local classic with ham, eggs, onions, and fried potatoes elegantly plated like a French omelet. For dessert, don't miss the panqueque de manzana, a thin crepe with caramelized apples and flamed in rum.
