If I was the type to play a pointless hypothetical stranded-on-a-desert-island game, I’d choose to be stuck with some hot bread, sensual cheese, sexy wine, and erect jolty coffee. So imagine the utter rejoice shed when Pain et Vin in Palermo Soho opened its doors for a wine-bread-cheese-coffee-Palermonites dream come true.
Butter me up with your healthy sultry oils because it’s time to break the fast with some avocado toasts. It’s a food fact that avocado makes anything taste better. Ready in under five minutes, nutritious, filling, flavorful, and fat in all the right curvaceous places, it’s time to make avocado toast your go-to breakfast-lunch-dinner-snack.
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 […]
Al Zain is a very special place I hold dear to my stomach. For years it was my solid last minute cheap delivery spot, the neighborhood family owned restaurant was always just one call away when that special 11:45pm falafel-babaganoush-shawarma-chickenkebab craving hit. Because that kind of hummusy hankering comes up quite often. But lately I’ve […]
Down the road from the touristic Plaza Serrano turnabout, SIPAN has taken over the bottom level of the Palermitano Hotel, whipping up Peruvian-Japanese fusion delectables. Upscale Peruvian seemed a bit oxymoronic to me. Dropping a hefty centavo on a plate of fancy ceviche just isn’t right when you can get a version just as delicious for half the price at […]
In a country praised for the prime meat, it’s always baffling how so many of us are on an endless quest for a decent burger. Ground beef mix, quick high flame sear, toasted sesame bun, toppings, sauce and burger me delicious. But sadly BA has been stuck in a world of dry, flat, overcooked, unseasoned mooburgesas that […]
On the far end of Palermo Hollywood, stumble up to the house-like tall door, pull on a wooden spoon, and enter into the world of Cusic: a cosy, homey café with lovely decor, wonderful baked goods and tasty homemade food.
Bistro Tokyo isn’t some new hidden gem that magically dropped from the sushi heavens. It’s one of those spots that has been quietly off the radar for a few years, favorited by those Japanese food lovers who really know what’s up. Even though I added it long ago to my Buenos Aires restaurant hit list, […]
Fall has hit Buenos Aires, and so has the autumn produce: squash, mandarin oranges, apples, eggplant, tomatoes and my personal favorite: pomegranate (granada). Who cares if I’ve been staining my clothes and entire kitchen with the deep red juicy seed dye, totally worth it to reap the benefits of this super food. Pomegranates are a wonderful […]
**SMOOTHWAY IS SHUTTERED** Say goodbye to those fake-healthy Buenos Aires cafés who pack their so-called licuados with sugar and wraps with sad, sorry produce. Smooothway, a new addition to the Palermo Hollywoood café club, has graced the neighborhoood with its fresh organic presence, forming a sort of hybrid healthy fast foood joint that caters to those who want […]
