should miss: El Gato Negro (The Black Cat).

It was opened in 1927 in a venue a block away from the one the store is located now – where they moved to in 1928. This spice store-bar has a long and charming story. Its founder was a Spanish man, Victoriano López Robredo, who worked for a British company and for 40 years lived in Ceylán, Singapur and the Philipines travelling from place to place. One day in one of those trips, he came up with the idea of using as a logo for his project a black cat sitting, with a red ribbon around its neck because that was printed on the menu of the train restaurant car.

The shop became well-known for having the best spices, mostly brought from abroad. Its fame in Buenos Aires is due to them, as well as for its teas and coffees.

The incomparable style of an elegant grocer’s remains intact in this store: Italian ash and oak counters and showcases, Dutch chandeliers made of bronze, Thonet chairs, knowledgeable and extremely kind salespeople.

On finding such immaculate disposition and exhibition of seeds, aromatic herbs, spices, diet salt, jars of spices, a selection of sauces, glazed fruits, first-class tea leaves and coffee beans, customers can allow their imaginations to wander freely and dream they are in an old-time Argentina.

The store is ideal for a cup of tea or coffee before a show for its characteristic warmth, as well as for the fine flavours of its products. It is a must to experiment what The Black Cat has to offer.
