If you’ve ever been to Buenos Aires, you know that it’s one of these places you have a hard time explaining to others what it’s really like, uber cool, confusing or stylish doesn’t quite cut it. You have to experience it for yourself, and when you have, try explaining it to someone who has never been. You’ll see what I’m talking about!
Anyways, being a bit of a foodie… Okay, I’ll admit it, being a major foodie I obviously have tons of places I like to go to, and usually I go to certain places to have specific dishes. Buenos Aires not being an exception I’ll give you a list of my favourite places.
Oui-Oui, a local favourite among the Porteños and well known within the expat’ community. Head there if you want breakfast, a hearty lunch or just have some coffee and pastries whilst reading some magazines or catching up on the latest gossip with friends. My favourite is the ensalada de burrata with their famous ‘limonada de menta y jengimbre’. [Nicaragua 6066 esq. Arévalo]
Morelia, from the outside it doesn’t look like much, but believe me, it is the best steak I have ever eaten! It isn’t featured in any well known guides about Buenos Aires (such as La Cabrera, Don Julio, etc), but it really offers some great food and at a fantastic price! For those who haven’t become addicted to the Argentinean meat just yet, the pizzas are some of the best in town. If you’re planning a visit, make sure you book a table before you go as it tends to get real busy any day of the week, and indulge on a ‘bife de lomo muy jugoso’. [Humboldt 2005 esq. Nicaragua]
Tegui, if you have a reason to celebrate or simply want to impress your loved one (or a potential lover), this is the place to go! Hidden behind a graffiti:ed facade, you step into a beautiful restaurant with dimmed lights, a gorgeous wine ‘wall’, a small court yard and even a space for private dining. The food does not come cheap but it is one of the best meals I have had in the city. Reservations are necessary. [Costa Rica 5852 esq. Angel Carranza]
