Where to Keep Kosher

Since Latin America's largest Jewish community resides in Buenos Aires, the city has several good kosher restaurants: El Pasaje Restó & Bar ($ dinner, $55; 3141 Pasaje El Lazo; 54-11/4806-0084; elpasaje.com.ar), the steak house Al Galope (dinner, $30; 2633 Tucumán; 54-11/4963-6888), and the Syrian Sephardic-influenced Mamá Jacinta (dinner, $35; 2580 Tucumán; 54-11/4962-9149) all observe strict rabbinic practices. There is also a kosher McDonald's (3247 Corrientes; 54-11/5711-8171), which happens to be the only one on the South American continent.
