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 […]

Oporto: A Modern Rotisería-Almacén Porteño

On a quiet corner in residential Nuñez, a barrio growing in culinary endeavors, there’s one white tiled monstrosity that stands apart from the rest. Part modern almacén, part rotisería for take-away, part vinoteca and part restaurant, it’s a sleek spot where excellent wines meet porteño comfort food.

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.

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 […]

When I first heard about a restaurant classy-ing up Jewish cooking, I didn’t like the concept. “Gourmet Jewish Food” seemed like a pretentious oxymoron. I don’t want to see the food from my childhood turn into tiny portions, meticulously presented in a trendy Palermo restaurant. Give me my fattyfat Jewish deli sandwiches and my Grandma […]
