You must try their spinach and cheese empanadas...one of the best you will eat in Palermo. Their pizza is not thin crust though its popular with locals.

I've been living in Buenos Aires for nearly 4 months and have tried a ton of empanadas from different highly rated places around the city. I keep going back to Guimpi because they are THE BEST empanadas not only in Buenos Aires, but they're the best I've ever had in my life. They have a lot of flavors and they're... More

This is basically a small hole-in-the-wall restaurant which serves mainly pizza and empanadas, all at very low prices. The pizza is amazing, and the empanadas were the best we had in all of Buenos Aires. This place felt like a hidden gem.

Don't know much about empanadas bit those ones are great! Just a little door to the entrance. This is a place that you can go straight on the street and don't even observe. But you will not regret if go inside, have a seat and taste some empanadas.

As above, good flavour,pastry and ingredients, i find ordering them cold and warming them in the oven at home is the best way, nice and crisp pastry. old Buenos aires feel to the shop. friendly staff.

We stumbled upon this hole in the wall and were elated to discover the best empanadas we've had in all of Buenos Aires! And even better, they're cheap. The place is tiny - and can get pretty busy and hot during peak hours - so grab your empanadas "para llevar" and enjoy on a bench down the street on Avenida... More

If you want a hole in the wall empanada place, this is it. We had empanadas a few times in BA and this place had the BEST crust - it was flaky not chewy. A couple of empanadas and a cold cerveza were all we needed! Recommended if you're in the area!

As you probably know, food in Buenos Aires is no longer that budget friendly. But what can you get for cheap? Empanadas, of course! And Guimpi V has the best empanadas in town, at 10 pesos each (that's US$1 each). There are probably a dozen fillings to choose from, and I loved that each one is differently shaped. Our favorites...

A local Palermo Chico hangout where you can get a cold beer, watch some soccer, munch on a variety of think-crust pizzas, an many choices of empanadas. Oh so fresh. Inexpensive.

Neighbourhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighbourhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favourite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
