New York had its Soup Nazi, and Buenos Aires has Paulin, a tiny but jumping restaurant downtown. You can barely move in this constantly busy joint, but the traditional lunch menu is served steaming hot and practically flying. Yes, these waiters don't do as much waiting as they do incredible execution of taking orders, plating food, and sending it sliding down both sides of an oval-shaped counter. Fight for a seat or shout out your order to the lightning-fast head waiter and watch carefully to see what looks like eight arms wrapping, writing, and clearing your plates all at once. Worth the wait for a seat, but don't expect to dillydally!
