I only really had to know two things before eating at highly acclaimed Dinner by Heston Blumenthal: Meat Fruit and Tipsy Cake.
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 […]
Quests for bloody Marys, a gastro-trip to the Ukraine, new closed-door restaurants, sandwiches and brunches galore, here are some food highlights (and low lights) of August eats. Oh, and a big RIP to my camera. It’s broken (probably caused by too much food inside the lens), which means I must take a food porn hiatus. […]
Israel, the fruitful land of milk and hummus, where the Israeli salads flow like Kosher wine and tender balls of fried falafel grow on trees. After I fell in love with Israeli food porn for the first time, our relationship has blossomed in a deep and meaningful way. Just like Tim Whatley converted to Judaism for […]
After a two week trip to Israel on Birthright, on the four meal per day regime, I quickly became obsessed with all things food in the Middle East: fresh chopped vegetables, iced cafés, salads, Israeli breakfasts, homemade breads, fresh fish and tahina-rich flavors. Here is my recap of my best food finds in Israel.
Yet another thing for Argentines to boast about, the town of General Pico in La Pampa has just won the Guinness World Record for the largest asado in the world! With over 45 pairs of asadores (those who MAN the grill) and 13,713 kilos of meat, Argentina proudly took over Uruguay’s title set in 2008. The […]
“What do you miss about the USA?” is on the top 5 list of questions that many expats are asked when being quizzed about their reasons for living abroad. As a shallow, culinary obsessed, mid-twenty something, my answer will always remain something superficial. These days with the glories of social media and the wonders of […]
It’s no coincidence that I chose to visit my family in the US over Thanksgiving, the only major holiday where eating takes center stage, giving thanks for being a bunch of total greedy foodface stuffing fatties. After 4 years of Argentine-styled Thanksgivings, it was time to celebrate authentic American food traditions, feasting until you can feast […]
Many travelers visiting a new place for a short period of time feel the overwhelming necessity to follow a Nazi-like schedule, ticking off all of the major (and minor) tourist attractions from an uninformed guidebook. Personally, I prefer to engage in my favorite traveling (and non-traveling) pastime: Restaurant Hopping.
I met this Argentine dude in my hostel in Rio de Janeiro. He was a 30 something guy who always looked like he was about to go for a jog — decked out in black Nike shorts with one of those light weight Adidas muscle sleeveless shirts. He had been in Rio for the past […]
