Take a look at the place, the people and the food…
Let us introduce ourselves
Argentina Cafe serves the most authentic Argentinean food in a cozy friendly cafe-like environment and everything that is served is cooked / baked in-house. Needless to say we use the freshest produce and meat available, and we bring special spices and ingredients all the way from Argentina so that the food we make can remind us of home every single time.
Our customers really like the empanadas and the choripan [an Argentinean sausage sandwich]. The empanadas is a family recipe, and the alfajores filled with sinful dulce de leche and rolled in coconut flakes are absolutely exquisite. Those aren’t the only things on the menu that people have loved; our whole menu is a delight for foodies.
How it all came to be…
We moved to Houston a few years ago from Florida, and to Florida from Buenos Aires, where we owned a deli and coffee shop. We all ended up in Houston. We opened Argentina Café in the Galleria area in the fall of 2009. The place is spotless and has a modern and functional design. We make everything from scratch.
All the entrees on the menu are dishes we have grown up with, and we hope that you will like them as much as we do. If you’re ever in the Galleria area, just shopping around or if you’re on a lunch break, or just want to stop by and hang out with a few friends at night or on the weekends, we welcome you to do so at Argentina Cafe; We hope you will stop by someday.
I had lunch here with two friends today. They had the grilled chicken salad [commented very good] and the mango chicken salad [likewise]. I had the steak and friend eggs, and the steak was rare as I had requested. The meat was juicy and the eggs just right — I was surprised to find a relatively thin cut of beef prepared in such a juicy way.
The espresso was also pronounced to be very good.
All around excellent.
I came here with my boyfriend for a late lunch/early dinner on a Saturday around 4ish. There was plenty of parking and not busy at all. The service was quick and friendly. I loved the beef empanadas! The dough was light and flaky. The chimmichuri sauce was tasty. The steak plate with fries was the bomb dot com for the price. I picked out a few desserts to take home for a midnight snack. We loved all of them. Anything with the dulce de leche is a must-try.
The empanadas were nearly perfect. Crispy and flaky yet did not crumble and held form upon being devoured. The best I’ve had in Houston. And as a local foodie/fattie and everything in between, believe me: I know what I’m talking about.
The sandwich with filet mignon/ham/cheese/tomatoes/lettuce/fried egg was great. A combination I’ve never thought about putting together but the Argentines have been doing right for a while! Fries were just ok but you’re paying for the sandwich, not the potatoes.
The green tea (couldn’t pronounce it) was also good. When I was drinking it, I felt like a powerful drug lord wearing his white linens while relaxing beachside by his villa
The staff was very friendly and helpful to a noob so I’m glad they held their hospitality in to the absolute last hour (we got in there pretty close to them closing).
I’m beyond impressed with the representation of Argentina’s food by this place.
I’m from NYC and just in the area for a few days for work – the food that their kitchen puts out is really honest and authentic.
