Who is Chef Pato Rodriguez?

Pato Rodriguez is a chef based in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Although her family ran a shop in the market, it is Pato’s running of the stall which made it a super success.

Chef Pato changed the shops name from El Bar de Pato to Las Chicas de las Tres. The critically-acclaimed food stand is located in the city’s Central Market. She took over the family’s stall when it was on the brink of closure. Pato dropped out of college to do so, and it’s a good job she did!


At Las Chicas de las Tres, they are known for their cheesy tortillas; an oozing, OTT treat which has gained her stall recognition in the area. They also make pizzas and empanadas.

Chef Pato and Romi

It wasn’t just chef Pato’s cooking skills which drew viewers to her, but her love story with Romi.

When Pato fell in love with Romi, she initially hid their relationship from her family. When they eventually learned of their daughter’s new relationship, the Rodriguez family did not approve. However, this turned around in time.

Romi now works at Las Chicas de las Tres making their famous cheesy tortillas alongside chef Pato.
