In our regular column answering readers' questions about Stockholm, Peter Vinthagen Simpson gives tips on where to find good Argentinian cuisine in Stockholm.

I really love Argentinian food culture, but have never seen an Argentinian restaurant here - is there nowhere in Stockholm that specialises in this, or have I missed something?

While the Argentinian football team may be struggling to mount a serious challenge for next year's World Cup finals, 406 Estocolmo serves up its hearty fair with the artistic brilliance of a pass from the maestro Maradona himself.

406 Estocolmo is an authentic intimate "parrilla" on Ringvägen on Södermalm.

"Parrilla", like tango, is a trademark and means meat seared on a flame grill, all washed down with copious quantities of red wine.

While we are on the theme of tango - Restaurang Pelé on Kungsholmen offers a cosy environment to enjoy an equally cholesterol-boosting meal combined with the conscience-cleansing exercise of the quintessentially Argentinian dance form.

The restaurant/dance hall offers a range of beginners courses almost every weekend and a menu containing all that you would expect from South American cuisine with a clear Italian influence at no-nonsense prices.
