Niño Gordo

Restaurant & Café - Buenos Aires

A factor that is becoming increasingly important in gastronomy is wether or not a place is “instagrammable”. The Asian-Argentinian fusion bar-restaurant Niño Gordo (translates ‘fat child’) in the hip Palermo district definitely fulfills this criterion.

Especially the ceiling with its over 100 red Chinese lanterns is flooding social media channels. The atmosphere reminds of a bar as seen in Geisha movies or Japanese saunas of the 60s. It receives a unique character via its exuberant furnishings and fits the meat-heavy meals and the tiny leading actor. Asian abundance!

Special Tips

The ‘fat child’ can be found on each table. The head functions as a lamp.
