“What’s the best restaurant in Buenos Aires?” I probably get asked that impossible question at least once a day, and will never be able to answer in a concrete way. It’s like I’ll always be on that endless quest to find the great Buenos Aires edible and drinkable spots. So when asked to create this […]
It’s time we all toss aside ground beef empanada filled “spring rolls” with fluorescent pink sweet and sour sweet sauce, say chau-chau to chaw fan, put down the fork, pick up some chopsticks, and tuck into a slightly more authentic world of Chinese cuisine. Here are my top picks for the best Chinese food in Buenos Aires.
Buenos Aires is no stranger to Mediterranean flavors. With a history of Middle Eastern (mostly Syrian and Lebanese) and Armenian immigration, each with culturally active communities, it’s pretty easy to find your face nose deep in shawarma. But this one Almagro hole in the wall a few blocks away from Parque Centenario stands out from […]
Sometimes I get attacked by a dark hole of self-induced extranjero depression, where just whipping out an old BA guidebook, glancing at an outdated travel article, or deciphering a price crossed out pizzería menu gives me the uncontrollable urge to play the Inflations-A-Bitch pity party game. With restaurant costs catapulting skyward, inflation at a ridiculous high, it’s […]
One of the biggest restaurant hits of 2012, the Colombian boys at I-Latina opened up shop in Villa Crespo, bringing upscale Caribbean cuisine to Buenos Aires. A reservation only spot, this closed-door private restaurant made quite the impact on the local gastronomical scene, quickly climbing the rankings as one of the best restaurants in the city. […]
Little pillows of Chinese lovin’, dumplings dipped in some sorta sweet, salty and tangy dipping sauce might just be one of the better two bite wonders to pop in your mouth. There’s nothing like a no frills dirty Chinese restaurant with a family style vibe — where a mom and daughter cooking crew whip up […]
Another month has passed, the weather got nice, titties came out, then it got cold again, titties went back inside sweaters, and everyone complained. Just like every month, September was filled with good food, bad food and my-diet-starts-tomorrow promises. Here’s the monthly rundown of exactly why you’re still fat.
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. […]
Even though it’s one of the biggest cities in South America, Buenos Aires sure lacks quality Latin American restaurants. Desperately longing for more food options coming from our friendly Spanish speaking Caribbean neighbors to the north, I Latina, the new and extremely anticipated puerta cerrada, has finally opened their closed doors to bring something quite gastronomically unique to the […]
It’s safe to say that Villa Crespo is no longer an up-and-coming neighborhood; it’s already the hotness and has been for some time. These grand gastronomical happenings are leading Villa Crespo into the food heavens, sprinkling it with that extra sparkle, and making it a hot destination for traditionalists and trendsetters alike. It’s the Palermo Viejo […]
