C Buenos Aires Café Este

South AmericanLower East$10-$25

There is a good reason why Argentina-born chef Reina Morris is well-regarded for her exemplary baked goods. Her empanadas are a bite of heaven with wonderful savory treasures encased in delicate, flaky crusts. Both the texture and flavor of the Lomito Beef sandwich is as good as it gets, with perfectly cooked tenderloin slathered with the house signature chimichurri sauce on a soft baguette. Meanwhile, the desserts for which regulars save room will be glowing in the pastry case in all of their glory, so before you get those alfajores for later, consider Quattro Leches cake, or Pionono roulade with fresh strawberries.

Killa Wasi is one of the most joyfully unpretentious restaurants in Austin. Duck inside of a teal school bus to find their delicious Peruvian-inspired fare, where everything inside – from the yellow bottles of bubblegum-sweet Inca Kola to the cheery chalkboard – pops brightly with color.
