It's difficult to eat a good Chinese food in Buenos Aires. The fried rice at Lai Lai is good. All the traditional Chinese food is ok. Located in the Barrio Chino, the Chinese neighborhood, it's a small restaurant with good food. Good prices, family operated.

As one of the main commercial hubs of Buenos Aires,
Belgrano has something for everyone. The myriad of
shop windows in Cabildo Ave. will draw you in, but it
is Chinatown — an area of no more than two square
blocks — which will keep you hooked. Crowned by an
ornate arch marking its entrance and filled with small
stores packed to the brim, it is a place where colour
