Pi-Chi-Klin Sushi & Fish, which moved to a larger space in March 2014, is a new culinary venture made by a young dynamic team with initiative and passion for Oriental cuisine. With Argentina being home to around 250,000 Jews, making it the sixth largest Jewish community in the world, and the biggest in Latin America, owner Michoel Barnatan fills the void in the community for a restaurant like this. The community’s demand for quality kosher food is incorporated into their menu specializing in sushi, grilled and fried fish. The touch of Nikkei (Japanese food with a South American twist) comes from Chef Joaquin Villarreal of Mercedes, Corrientes who graduated from Instituto Argentino Gastronomico. The white modern interior, malba chairs, skylight, fish tanks, and LED lighting invites sushi goers of all ages, especially the younger clientele, for a fun meal out.
Signature dishes at Pi-Chi-Klin include the Salmon Tempura which is deep fried beer battered Chilean salmon with honey mustard sauce, black sesame, and fried rice.

The Passion Roll consists of mango, cucumbers, avocado, cream cheese, wrapped in smoked salmon and passion fruit sauce on top. Their hot fried rolls are worth mentioning especially the Caesar (salmon, lettuce, and Caesar dressing) and the simply titled Pi-Chi-Klin (salmon, avocado, panizano, fried jalapeno, mayo). When you are looking to go VIP, they have the Dynamite Roll with salmon tempura flakes, wrapped in more salmon, covered in avocado, citrus, and spicy hot pepper sauce. The VIP Crunch Roll gives you salmon, crown, cream cheese, tempura flakes, scallions in a honey sauce. For dessert, the New York style Cheesecake and the Chocolate Volcano will keep you wanting more. Each dish is prepared at time of your order, so they are convenient with their take-out, deliveries, and online ordering making Pi-Chi-Klin the go-to sushi spot in all of Buenos Aires. Private parties and catering are also available for your special occasions.
