A Chori a Day Keeps the Doctor Away

_dsc3941-1

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 […]

The Indian Vegetarian Lunch Spot: Thali

It’s not easy being a vegetarian in Buenos Aires. When I first touched down, I lasted a good six months after a nearly 13-year adolescent no meat streak. But times have changed and today there are many more decent options for non-beef eaters (no, mozo, vegetarians don’t eat ham or chicken either). But after trying lots of […]

Co-Pain – Ambrosetti 901, CaballitoBread lovers across the city had a mini freak out when legendary Franck Dauffouis, owner and boulanger of Caballito’s best hidden bakery, packed his baguettes and went back to France. But luckily, his bakers kept his spirit alive with a totally renovated (and much more cheerful) Co-Pain Boulangerie. Pick up all sorts of reasonably priced goodies to-go, […]

The Slurping Ramen Rundown

The long night has come and a steaming bowl of ramen comes with it. Ramen has always existed in BA but it seems like in the past year food obsessors have gone totally loco for ramen. And that’s a really good thing because a life without ramen is no life at all. The Japanese soup with Chinese-style noodles, powerful bone broth, […]

Eat the Buenos Aires Seasons: Fall / Otoño Produce

fall

In Buenos Aires, it’s not hard to eat seasonally. If an ingredient isn’t in season, it’s not available. Or it’s really expensive. Or it probably tastes heinous. There’s nothing like a tomato in the summer with the flavor of an actual juicy tomato, a 10 peso creamy avocado in late spring, a deep orange roasted pumpkin in the […]

A Ceviche Party at La Mar

La Mar Buenos Aires was probably one of the most anticipated restaurant openings in 2015, and a year later, this Peruvian cebichería is still a hit. Many were skeptical that the seafood-centric spot wouldn’t be so hot in Argentina’s not-so-seafood friendly capital city, but Gastón Acurio and his crew have yet again managed to win over our hearts […]

Praise the meat lords! After what seems like centuries of the same traditional Argentine fare, one special restaurant has crossed over to the dark side to revamp the holy parrilla. La Carnicería, which means butcher shop in Spanish, stays true to its meat roots modernizing the steakhouse classics with a contemporary spin and exciting flavor twists. Smoked chorizo, caramelized sweetbreads, blood […]

The Brunchfast Club: Where to Brunchear Your Corazón Out

IMG_4592

Buenos Aires has gone LOCO for brunch. In a city that traditionally never used to eat a hearty meal in the morning – unless it was leftovers from an asado the night before – it seems like every café has been popping up offering non-Argie breakfast foods that go far beyond medialunas, cortados and tostados. Brunch, brúnch, broonch, brunchear, bruncheamos, bruncheando, bruncheada, brunchmance (romantic […]
