“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 “Hometown Guide” of the best 5 restaurants in Buenos Aires, my response was simple – not even HE almighty of the food world who possesses God-like all knowing restaurant superpowers could give you a top 5 list of the best Buenos Aires restaurants, there are just too many variables involved. In a city with an infinite amount of restaurants, bars and everything in between, there are countless hidden gems, restaurants openings, cafés closing down, cooks improving, and kitchens getting shittier one steak at a time. But all this rambling aside, and although my choices will probably change tomorrow, I can provide a list of my favorite Buenos Aires eats for a handful of food situations.

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 the rest with properly made hummus, eggplant dip, shawarma, and falafel — all done the Israeli way.
It’s time to forever bid farewell to your favorite pancho stand, because a beautiful all beef salchicha has hit the streets of BA. Packed with juicy beef, grilled on the parrilla, nestled inside a pillowy fresh bun and served with a glorious selection of fresh toppings and interesting sauces, all of our long and pink wiener-y hot dog dreams have finally come true.
Once you go DOGG, you’ll never go back.
