(Fainá by mteson)
If you’re planning on going to the famous Av. 9 de Julio and to the obelisco, Wednesday might be a good day as you can catch a free classical music concert in the close by Gran Rex Theatre at 1pm. Right across the street from the theatre is “Las Cuartetas” one of the most famous pizza parlors in town. We recommend you try the ‘Fugazzeta’ (an onion and cheese pizza) and fainá, a thin chickpea “tortilla”
