My wife and I have been exploring 118th avenue for new ( to us) places to eat. So far we have enjoyed:
-Caribean food at Saffron,
-calzones at Battista's,
-empanadas at the Handy bakery ( fairly similar to what you can buy at a bakery or cafe in Buenos Aires),
-tamales at El Rancho
-pizza at the Coliseum.
We are looking for suggestions for other places to try in the area.
