Behind a great and creative wall, a collaboration of street artists known in Buenos Aires, one can find one of the great (and secret) restaurants in Palermo Soho, Tegui. If you don't know the exact location of the restaurant, you might miss it easily, as there is no sign or anything that can tell you about the restaurant, just a name on the door.
It is known as one of the best restaurants in the city and better make a reservation.

This is one of my favorite images, as it showcases how street art in Buenos Aires has reached new commercial heights. This is not some random wall! Tegui restaurant commissioned street artist Cabaio/Stencil to bombard the outside of their locale with street art. Fantastic!
If you are going to Buenos Aires, I highly recommend seeking the services of Graffitimundo. They have a tour that showcases some of the most active and original artists in the urban art scene right now. The tour is also extremely informative and it was interesting to hear how different the approach to street art is in Argentina, as opposed to for example the U.S.A.
Some of the best Street Art in the world lives in Buenos Aires. To be in the know, I look for the help of the experts that not only take me to all the hot spots, but that also work with many of these talented artists.
Graffitimundo offers private and group tours of the street art scene in Buenos Aires. The first time I linked up with their team I was able to produce some of my best photography ever. These are important to me for another reason; you don’t know how long some of these works will be up on the walls.
On this new tour I was met by old favorites, like the wall by Cabaio Stencil in front of the Tegui Restaurant (pictured above). I was also introduced to new artists and pieces that I connected with instantly.
One of Argentina’s biggest star chefs, Germán Martitegui made his name with the restaurants Casa Cruz and Olsen. With an open kitchen, his follow-up restaurant Tegui in Palermo Viejo is decidedly more minimalist and humble in scale—but its tables are equally coveted. Martitegui’s menu twists traditional Argentine dishes into creative presentations.
