Rock’n Falafel Roll at Roll’in Luí Alimentos

IMG_9446-2

The whole vegetarians-suffer-in-beefy-Buenos Aires spiel no longer holds much truth. For decades, plant-based dishes on porteño menus were limited to sad lettuce-tomato-onion salads and French fries or mashed potatoes. I’ve seen waiters serve announced vegetarians chicken and ham, genuinely surprised upon discovering that these foods originate from animals, and thus, vegetarian unfriendly. During Anthony Bourdain’s recent Buenos […]

The Empanada Tour of Salta

IMG_9530

What does one do when in Salta? I have two words for you… EMPANADAS SALTEÑAS. I had an ambitious plan for my day in Salta: an empanada walking tour across the city’s capital to eat at as many empanada shops as possible. Forget vacationing in Punta del Este, this year hit up Salta and go on a great empanada journey.

The Eater 38: Essential Buenos Aires Restaurants

Screen Shot 2016-06-06 at 12.06.56 PM

Eater’s Guide to the Entire World dropped last week featuring an extensive restaurant guide to dozens of cities across the world. Making the Buenos Aires list was no easy task. While I could have easily added 38 more deserving restaurants to the guide, these were the spots that made the final cut. Read the entire BA […]

The Five Best Places to Eat in Mexico City

IMG_3173

Mexico is one of the most food-centric cities I’ve ever been to. Everywhere you look, at any time of night or day, there’s a food stall, great restaurant, incredible market, fonda-in-the-wall, or killer street cart just waiting for you to consume delicious edibles. I keep having intense flashbacks about the food: tacos, elotes, tamales, tortas, carnitas, gorditas, flautas, chicharrones. […]

Forking it on the Road in France: A Food Day in Lyon

IMG_3808

Bouchon, Bocuse, baguettes, boulangerie, Beaujolais. Les Halles de Lyon, street markets, pork, wine, charcuterie, more pork, andouillette, Côtes du Rhône, the basilica of Notre Dame. And the cheeses – OH that French cheese. I took a trip to Lyon just for the food, and this is how I ate my day.

The Restaurant Bible: Where to Eat in Lima

lima central

There’s something incredibly special about Lima. The people, the history, the food, the flavors, the ingredients, the biodiversity. The restaurants, the street food, the markets, the cooks, the chefs, Mistura, Gastón. The ocean, the Andes, the Amazon, the Nikkei, the Chifa, the ceviche, the pisco. The spices, the sauces, the anticuchos, the potatoes, the chilcanos, the […]

Life on a Mendoza Vineyard: The Casa de Uco Getaway

IMG_0226

Oh, how I love Mendoza. It’s one of the only places on earth where it’s socially acceptable to drink wine before 10am. It’s also ideal for non-alcoholic reasons: the scenery is absolutely insane – think Andes mountains, an ideal climate, sunny weather, blue skies, friendly Mendocinos, rivers, vineyards, lots of green landscapes, sunrises, sunsets, stars, […]

Forking it on the Road in France: Mauro Colagreco’s Mirazur

IMG_3343

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 […]

A Feria de Mataderos Photo Food Tour

mataderos

It’s hard to believe that after living in Buenos Aires for over 7 years, I never made it to the Feria de Mataderos. I guess I always passed it off as a pointless touristic activity, crawling with La Boca Caminito types; big boned tourists who are suited up to go trekking in foothills of San […]
