The Indian Vegetarian Lunch Spot: Thali

_DSC2215

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 […]

I Tried All-You-Can-Eat Sushi Libre So You Wouldn’t Have To

_DSC3313

I know what you’re going to say, why on earth would someone pay actual money for bad sushi? It was a poor decision from the start. My brain knew it would be a mistake, but my heart still had some hope. I guess I wanted to see for myself just how gross all-you-can-eat cheap sushi in Buenos Aires could be. The answer […]

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

_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, […]

The Asado Palace of Liniers: El Ferroviario

Parrilla spread El Ferroviario

I take the subway, two buses, and a sketchy walk around the Veléz Sarsfield fútbol stadium to get to El Ferroviario. Then, down the dark, shady alleyway I go, passing through a parking lot until I make it to an abandoned rail yard directly under a highway ramp. Wafts of asado smoke fill the air, and once I spot the steam locomotive next to […]

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. […]

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 […]

There’s a bao revolution going on in Buenos Aires. In the past year pan “chino” al vapor has become an instant hit, creeping its way onto many of the city’s Asian-style restaurant menus. So it’s perfect timing to welcome Bao Kitchen Argentina, a new Taiwanese bistro in Retiro, who knows what’s up when mastering the steamed bun. First things first, what is a […]
