It’s only the first half of 2014 and the city has already exploded with new places to eat out. There seems to be a common trend with this Freshman class of newbies that I’m totally digging. It’s a general theme that is setting a new tone for the future way Buenos Aires dines: cooks and chefs as owners, involved in small yet unique passion projects, mostly opening outside the Palermo Soho bubble to serve a limited *and affordable* menu that simply focuses on great food. Here are the highlights of best new restaurants (cafés and bars) in Buenos Aires during 2014 (in no particular order).

It was a date which will live in infamy. I woke up early overlooking Monaco’s crystal blue Mediterranean sea, hopped on a bus winding through the hills of the Côte d’Azur, stopped off in Italy for an espresso, then wandered across the border by foot into the south of France to munch on a croissant and roam around Menton’s farmer’s market. This was all before 11:30am and just the precursor to the grand event: a four hour 11-course lunch of a lifetime at Mirazur. Continue reading

There was a day when I wasn’t allowed to eat pork. Bacon, pork belly, ham, sausages, ribs, chops, salami, and a whole wonderful world of the other white meat remained unkosherly off-bounds in my reform Jewish household. But my fascination for the oinking bottom feeder remained strong, and like some kind of rebellious gene inside my stomach, I’ve grown a serious craving for all things treif. So imagine my delight when I came across a place where I can act out all my porky fantasies. Any spot with the tagline “delicacies in pork” is where I want to be.

Porteños have two real edible love affairs: beef and barbecue. While it’s true that the majority of locals keep a fairly conservative diet, thanks to a changing food scene and eaters with more adventurous palates, Korean cuisine makes for a logical winning equation. With a personal parrilla grilling up high quality cuts of locally sourced beef and pork, BAB Cocina Coreana is one of the first spots with authentic Korean food to cater to Argentines.

For a city with such a vibrant café-going culture, overall Buenos Aires certainly does serve quite a shitty cup of coffee. Burnt beans, sugar roasted, poor quality, all probably made in a machine that hasn’t been cleaned since 1998, coffee
snobs aficionados that long for a cup of the good stuff may no longer have to drown in watered down and milked out poor tasting coffee. We can now join Argentina’s cafetero revolution and stick a caffeine IV in our arms to check out some of the best spots to drink coffee in Buenos Aires. Continue reading
