My New Favorite Brunch: Hernán Gipponi Restaurant in Fierro Hotel

**Hernán Gipponi Restaurant is no longer in the Fierro Hotel** For those looking to indulge in an extra special, extravagant brunch, skip the Faena, Park Hyatt or Alvear hotels and instead boutique it up at Hernán Gipponi’s restaurant, inside the Fierro Hotel.  After two visits this past month, it’s fair to say that H 2-da G […]


Loreto Garden Bar


It’s mighty refreshing finding a solid lunch spot that breaks away from the Palermo café-lunch-brunch scene epicenter.  Loreto Garden Bar, situated in a residential part of Colegiales, is an ideal warm-weather spot, to sit outside, and have a mighty tasty lunch.  Loreto’s menu may seem like any old Argie café menu of burger-sandwich-salad-tarta-offerings, but look a bit […]


The Perfect Buenos Aires Brunch

One time in my life I had the perfect brunch in Buenos Aires. A brunch filled with bagels, French toast casserole drenched in maple syrup, salty and savory cold cuts, an assortment of flavored cream cheeses, bacon, fruit, granola, yogurt, fresh baked challah, all the fixings you could dream of, juice, champagne, vodka, gin, cucumber […]


The Bacon Trials: Baines Best Bacon Delivery Bacon


The life of an amateur food blogger is quite hard work.  You have to go out to eat, take pictures of food and then write about it.  One of my most recent challenges included reviewing three pounds of glorious crispy, salty, American styled streaky bacon. And not just any bacon, the ONLY real bacon in […]


Adios Resaca, Hello Maple Syrup: Magdalena’s Party Brunch


What do classic soul jams, Bloody Marys and massive breakfast crepes have in common? Resto bar Magdalena’s Party weekend brunch offerings.  I remember back in the day when it was nearly impossible to find anything reminiscent of a good ole’ USA styled brunch – times have changed and bruncheando is a new local pastime (ranked […]


Buenos Aires Bagels: If you can’t find them, make them.


BA has gone bagel CRAZY.  Everywhere you look, bread with holes are popping up all over the place.  Besides the decent ones at Malvón, La Crespo and Quiero Bagel, a really good, inexpensive bagel just doesn’t exist. So to fulfill my jewy craving, I spent a whopping $10 pesos on ingredients, and whipped up a batch […]

Breakfast, lunch, merienda, brunch – yet another quality café has made an appearance in the up-and-coming culinary neighborhood of Villa Crespo. Situated near Buenos Aires’ outlet store central, BA meets New York in Malvón, the bread haven coffee shop.


The Pan at Pani


                    Welcome to the newest member of the Palermo Hollywood Nicaragua street café club. Pani (Nicaragua 6044) opened its doors in mid November 2010 and has made quite the impression on local clientele.    The outside of this large café can be deceiving – you may think […]


Brunch with the GRINGA

***GRINGA IS NOW CLOSED*** Brunch has come and it’s here to stay. This is the next new trend to hit Rio de la Plata.  For those who are traveling to Buenos Aires for a short period of time, in the need to strategically plan all restaurant ventures to make each one count, brunch is not […]


Oui Oui, Brunch Brunch, Yes Yes


The pioneer in the Buenos Aires brunch movement, Oui Oui has been around since the beginning, brunchificando the hell out of Palermo Hollywood.  A French-inspired cozy café,  Oui Oui has two locations on Nicaragua street in PoHo: the original in the middle of the street and the almacén version on the corner of Dorrego y […]
