The Slurping Ramen Rundown

_DSC2367

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 […]

La Carnicería: A Sanctuary of Meat

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 […]

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 […]

A Totally Biased Guide to the Best Pizza in Buenos Aires

IMG_0261

YANQUI DE MIERDA GO HOME! VOLVETE AL PAIS DE LOS OBESOS MORBIDOS. That was the all caps lock love letter I received a few years ago after mentioning I wasn’t fond of Argentine pizza. Note to self: if you fuck with Argies and their pizza, they take it personally and may threaten your life. Sorry Porteños, you will […]

The Hollywood Deli: Il Posto Mercato

Deli meats

It was December, 2014. I saw a sign on the corner of Humboldt and Soler: FIAMBRES, QUESOS, PICADAS, VINO. Since I’m a proponent of each one of those things, I stepped inside to check what this new place was all about. Wines, meats, cheeses, breads, bagels, coffee and sandwiches — I creepily walked around the […]

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 […]
