El Mercadito, whose value proposition of “friendly & fresh”, lives up to its promise with an international menu of gourmet salads, sandwiches and burgers (including veggie). The food is consistently wholesome and delicious, down to the fresh vegetable and fruit juices blended on the spot. Most restaurants in Mendoza offer a menu of meat, milanesas, empanadas, pizza and pastas; so Mercadito’s leafy greens are quite a novelty in this beef capital. The salmon entrée on the dinner menu is cooked to perfection. The restaurant’s antique-garage decor and spacious outdoor terrace are all part of its charm. Arístides 521; +54 261 463 8847
