Tartas — slice 4.00-4.50 p, open faced pies of meat or vegies mixed with egg

Wine — I think the common size is 750 ml — my favorite, San Felipe, in squat oval bottle, 9.50 p and Pablo’s recommendation, Colon, the same: one label that was a smaller bottle was on sale for 2.75p and I thought it was an OK table wine

  1. I know this is a very old price list. I’ll give you an update.

    Empanadas are 7-9 pesos each at La Continental, where a slice of pizza or fugazza is about the same.

    Group classes are 30-40 pesos in most places, and the same goes for milonga entradas, with a few at 25. A bottle of water is 14 pesos at a milonga.

    Best source for the most current guide of milongas with all the important details can be found online:

    • Hi Jan,
      Welcome, thanks for the three comments. What I hear of rising prices in BA discourages me from return. I think I could afford to live there but not have a money to go to milongas. My visit transformed my tango so I hope my embrace improved. Classes with Myriam were a high point.
      I follow and enjoy your blog.
