Kotobuki: The Cheap Sushi Delivery

IMG_7141

Sushi in Buenos Aires generally isn’t very good. There isn’t much variety other than salmon, fresh fish and seafood aren’t readily available, rice isn’t cooked properly, and rolls are often filled with cream cheese and other strange fillings. Jiro would definitely not approve. But it’s hard to deny when that sushi craving kicks in. I […]

Teamim: A Little Taste of Israel in Almagro

IMG_1004

Buenos Aires is no stranger to Mediterranean flavors. With a history of Middle Eastern (mostly Syrian and Lebanese) and Armenian immigration, each with culturally active communities, it’s pretty easy to find your face nose deep in shawarma. But this one Almagro hole in the wall a few blocks away from Parque Centenario stands out from […]

The Best Buenos Aires Restaurants For Cheap Bastards

Cheap dining

Sometimes I get attacked by a dark hole of self-induced extranjero depression, where just whipping out an old BA guidebook, glancing at an outdated travel article, or deciphering a price crossed out pizzería menu gives me the uncontrollable urge to play the Inflations-A-Bitch pity party game. With restaurant costs catapulting skyward, inflation at a ridiculous high, it’s […]

La Cresta: Winning Over Almagro

la cresta

A new food trend is storming across Buenos Aires: a modernized version of fast food to-go, offering an unorthodox porteño menu of ethnic-influenced healthy-ish grub. La Cresta might be one of the biggest gangstas in the para llevar gang, specializing in juicy, crispy rotisserie chicken, inventive salads and flavor filled wraps. 

The Buenos Aires Market

BA market

There’s really nothing better on a sunny, springtime Buenos Aires day than trucking over to the Bosques de Palermo (en bici, of course), to dodge the slow walking-mate drinking pedestrians, collide with erratic bike riding children, and watch pre-teens on roller skates eat shit hard on the pavement. You might think it wasn’t possible for the Bosques to get any busier […]
