If you get tired of the empanadas, media lunas, pasta, pizza and parillas head of down to Belgrano and visit Barrio Chino - which is actually just 2 small streets. It is one of the smallest China towns I have seen but it still has all the most essential items. Soya milk, tofu, quinoa, miso, tahini, peanut butter, nuts, seeds, obscure vegetables, and off the shelf sushi - basically all the items you won't find in a normal Argentinian supermarket.
You can find Barrio Chino in front of La Glorietas outdoor milonga just on the other side of the rail tracks.
