In 1968, 8-year-old Pablo Alberto Gonzalez wandered these streets, selling flowers in the restaurants.
💐
One night in the restaurant Bachin, songwriter Horacio Ferrer asked the boy about his life. Pablo never knew his father, his step-father had just become an invalid and his mother was working “nights”.
👦
Horacio wrote a tango about Pablo, calling him Chiquilín (little one) of Bachín. It became popular!
💃
When Pablo was old enough, Horacio found him a job as a tv cameraman.

Bachín was later sold, but the new owners couldn’t use the old name. They named their restaurant, Chiquilín.

Chiquilín has been our favorite restaurant in Buenos Aires since we came in 2015. It’s located at Calle Sarmiento 1599.
