Bar Tasende in Montevideo.

Old bars of Montevideo.  Bar Tasende.  This non pretentious bar, located in the south-east corner of the Solis theather is a traditional place, where long ago the cultural and bohemian Montevideo would meet up.  They became famous with the 'muzza al tacho', a pizza doe covered in thick real muzzarella and made inside a metal container (tacho) in a wood burning oven.  ..A simple and austere place, besides a recent paint job, it pretty much maintains the same look and feel that it did many years ago.  Some would argue that it's decaying.  I prefer to look at it as a preservation of tradition.  ..The bar is to this day managed by it's original owner, mister Tasende.  ..In any case, a must go, at least for honoring tradition and tasting a muzza al tacho.

A simple and austere place, besides a recent paint job, it pretty much maintains the same look and feel that it did many years ago.  Some would argue that it’s decaying.  I prefer to look at it as a preservation of tradition.

The bar is to this day managed by it’s original owner, mister Tasende.  In any case, a must go, at least for honoring tradition and tasting a muzza al tacho.
