I’m all about the lunch special. In this ever-inflating Buenos Aires restaurant world we live in, there’s nothing quite like a great deal for lunch. Contigo Peru has been a longasstime favorite, offering a killer weekday deal that will entice the cheapest of Peruvian eaters. Main dish, drink and dessert for just $35 pesos*, that’s what I call a lunch fit for an executive.
Contigo Peru will always hold a special place in my black heart. Back in my early BA days Contigo Peru was the only restaurant to serve food that was remotely spicy. It was also a dirty cheap option with 8 peso Quilmes litros and could easily accommodate a huge gang of irritating study abroad Yanks. The ideal spot. Even though nowadays there are a plethora of quality Peruvian restaurants, Contigo Peru still offers a lunch special that’s hard to beat.
