BEWARE and BE AWARE of Mr. Tango

Warning! Warning! Warning!

go to the Mr. Tango dinner show in Buenos Aires. Stay away. . .far away!!!

We head over for dinner and a tango show at Mr. Tango. We are herded into a restaurant. I try to ask the waiter how the pumpkin soup was prepared and had "It's PUMPKIN!!" barked at me.

I am not exaggerating. This dinner was some of the WORST food I have ever been served. It was atrocious. BAD! BAD! BAD! BAD! BAD! The pumpkin soup consisted of shredded pumpkin sunk to the bottom of a thin cream soup with absolutely no flavor. The pasta had no seasonings! It was like eating cardboard. The absolute worst thing tho? They served a malbec that tasted bad!!

This was the first time I wanted to submit reviews to and other places to spare people the agony of eating such swill in a town renowned for excellent cuisine.

The tango show had really amazing performers. Unfortunately, you couldn't appreciate it b/c they cram you in like sardines and seat you on tiny wooden chairs. To make matters worse, it was stiflingly hot throughout the performance. Most people fell asleep. Some got ill from being packed in so closely in such a stuffy room.

What tour company chose such an awful place? Nippon Tourist. If you are looking to travel to Buenos Aires, I urge you to read up on reviews of this company before booking through them. I would never go through them.
