Outside a hole-in-the-wall on the cobblestone streets of the San Telmo barrio in Buenos Aires, envious line-waiters patiently endure the grill smoke while watching eaters sit curbside and shovel beefy sandwiches into their faces. I had walked by this spot a number of times without realizing the wonders inside. But the time finally came, on one special […]
A 50’s themed diner smack in the middle of Palermo Soho, the Yanquis are invading! Pastel blue colored booths, a non-functional jukebox and counter stools, Muu Lecheria (Armenia 1810) has the kitschy ambience down, but like many restaurants in the zone, the food ain’t good and the staff acts like they are doing you a […]
Homemade food, large portions, family recipes, good prices, high quality products, inventive non-typical argentine menu, natural health conscious items – some of the many reasons why I love Baraka (Gurruchaga 1450, Palermo Soho).
UPDATE 2016: Check out this update map to the best steaks in Buenos Aires. Slap another steak on the parrilla, because it’s time to get down with some Argentine meat. Known as the land of beef, Argentina is a leader in the carnivorous world with one of the highest beef consumption rates on the planet (local porteños scarf […]
On a small cobblestone street behind the British Embassy in Recoleta you can find the cutest little café bistro you ever did see. Florencio (Francisco de Vittoria 2363) fits only about 10-15 people with 5 small tables inside and one small table outside on the sidewalk. The menu includes items like sandwiches, tartas, baked goods, […]
Oh, how I crave a corned beef sandwich from a real, authentic deli… I would do anything for a mile high stacked Reuben, all seasoned bagels with cream cheese, a complete lox plate, big kosher dill crunchy pickles, smiley face or black and white cookie yummm. My jew gene has definitely been in full force, […]
The mini food trend has hit BA and I hope it doesn’t stick. BeFrika, on the corner of Junin and French in Recoleta, is the first restaurant to serve higher class gourmet hamburgers, and they are tiny as hell.
Sitting in Muma’s, a tiny cupcake (and muffin) bakery in the overly trendy Palermo Soho area, is one of the most pleasant experiences I’ve had in a while. Yes, I know that’s an incredibly fat girl thing to say.
Walk down a deserted street in Congreso, and you will find a small wooden sign written in Korean. This was my second trip to BiWon and much tastier than I remembered. Greeted with complimentary pickled goodness kimchee and about 9 other small bowls like sugary tiny fishies, pickled vegetables, tofu, eggplant and all around spices, […]
The challenge: food hop around Buenos Aires’ Barrio Chino (China Town), visiting the best restaurants in Barrio Chino, to take the ultimate Chinese-inspired food tour. I attempted to visit as many restaurants as possible, to try all that Barrio Chino has to offered, determining which restaurants in China Town are worth visiting, and which are […]
