George’s Postcard Note: Another vist to a bodogone, a traditional bistro, this one around the corner from the Evita Peron Foundation and Museum. This place was tiny and busy and outside painted bright red (inside the walls were so covered with Hollywood memorabilia I couldn’t say what color). We found a table by the window. The menu was set and all we had to do was say yes and try what was served. Each course was delicious and scaled down, tapas-like, for the bar / cafe feel of the place. We enjoyed the Hollywood/Film Noir covered walls (the owner was obviously an obsessive collector), and then had a few laughs about the myriad porn joke pictures in the men’s room! I did tire of the Frank Sinatra CD played over and over again.
