Originally published on Argento’s The Real Argentina Almagro, the up-and-coming Porteño neighborhood that is already on the up, has everything you want in a Buenos Aires barrio.

It’s a genius concept. You take the choripán, Argentina’s most iconic street food, and chef it up to make each component shine. I’m talking about a meaty safe place where the homemade chorizo, fresh-baked bread, and creative toppings all join forces in sandwich harmony. Hey Buenos Aires, you can keep your silly burger craze because I want to party all night […]

coffeeeeee

For a city with such a vibrant café-going culture, Buenos Aires certainly does serve quite a shitty cup of coffee. Burnt poor quality beans that have been sugar roasted and probably made in a machine that hasn’t been cleaned since 1998 tend to totally disappoint those coffee snobs aficionados that long for a cup of the good stuff.

The food scene in Buenos Aires may be changing, growing, and diversifying, but it’s still rare for a restaurant to spring up that truly excites with an original concept, while also waving the Argentine spirit flag.
