Benihana: A Happy Hour and Lunch Special Bonanza

Before you hatas gunna hate about Benihana not being “””real””” sushi (which is partially true), Benihana still brings a higher quality sushi than most other sushi restaurants in Buenos Aires, offering a wide(r) selection of fresh fish, US-style rolls, and a killer Buenos Aires happy hour that’s hard to beat. Where else are you going […]

Product of the Day: Ades Soy Milk

Did you know Argentina is the 3rd largest producer of soy beans, yet there is only one brand of imitation soy milk offered?  Ades, a company that makes soy based mostly liquid cavity juices, produces a “natural” flavor that is somewhat comparable to soy milk, kinda.. sorta. It takes some getting used to, but after […]

Fresh Baked Medialunas in the Air

A few blocks away from my apartment, and the tourist / cheto SCENE that has transformed Oui Oui as an extension of the Live Hotel monstrosity, is a lovely, quiet spot, Café Montenegro (Soler y Arévalo).  The food isn’t amazing, decor nothing special, but for some reason, I just like it. I think because not […]

Cashew Stir Fried Noodles

Time to take my WOK out of retirement.  With an intense urge for American style Chinese food, I didn’t want to be disappointed by the crapness delivery services in my area.  After eating the best Chinese food I’ve had in BA a few weeks ago, I knew it would be difficult to get up to […]

Spicy Grilled Vegetable Taco

Healthy, easy meals using fresh in season vegetables, whole grains, and protein.  I hate veg freaks who use their “healthy” preachy selves pushing the agenda to eat food that’s good for you in order to live a long and happy life….  but that’s exactly what my hypocritical self is gunna do. What’s not shown in […]

‘Tis the Season… for produce

Even though there is technically one more month of winter left, good quality, […]

Veggie’s Deli & Gourmet Natural

Over the past 4 years that I’ve been living in Buenos Aires, I have probably ordered delivery more than all my other years combined, earning the title of a true couch potato.  Thanks to Buenos Aires Delivery, I have expanded my delivery menu stack of mostly bad sushi and pizza/empanadas, and I am able to […]

Challah Baking Extravaganza

After much tweaking, and failed attempts, my Challah recipe is starting to turn out absolutely perfect. It’s good to make this while you are stressed out and wanna punch a bitch in the face. Bitch punching = killer kneading.  A definite time consumer, I wouldn’t recommend starting to bake it and hour before you are […]

Melão: A Culinary Recorrido del Mundo

Melao4

Thanks to one tiny 6 table Villa Crespo restaurant, ethnic food in Buenos Aires has just been taking to a new level. At Melão (Castillo 52), diners get the chance to sample dishes from countries like Cuba, Vietnam, Jamaica, India, Ireland, Mexico, Madagascar, just to name a few. Argentines, known for not being the most […]
