Since internationally inclined BA embraces Mexican fare, we located a favorite local spot in the prime of Palermo. Called La Flor Azteca, this classic eatery — serving the anticipated quesadillas, tostadas, burritos, guacamole, and, of course, Margaritas — is owned by a native son, ’70s and ’80s film director Enrique Guevara. So, the place even looks cinematic, with plenty of color and loads of atmosphere. At the end of the meal, trade Mexican for Argentinean and dip into the dulce de leche dessert to end the meal right. Psst: Book a table on the weekend if you want to witness a lively Mariachi show, another South of the Border treat in tantalizing Tango land.
