Some of their most popular dishes for appetizers include Calamari Fritti and Provoleta del Chef, which is grilled provolone cheese over Spanish chorizo with roasted bell peppers. In addition to the great food, the overall atmosphere of Cambalache is outstanding. The goal is that the flavors and foods from Cambalache will transport you to “La Boca”, the colorful Argentine neighborhood from which the restaurant originated.

Lazy Dog Restaurant and Bar

Nonetheless, this restaurant still has some amazing food and drinks for you or your loved one to enjoy this fall! The most unique part about this restaurant is the fact that they have a specialized menu just for dogs, where you can order a meal like rice, beef, and veggies for your furry friend!
