Perhaps, just for kicks and grins, as the saying goes, we’ll go from the worst to the best….   Pequeña Casita China, Hipólito Yrigoyen 185, Martínez – My intention was a Chinese food crawl with a friend or two, with the idea to hit a trio (or possibly more) of places that readers have recommended in […]

?   It was time for planning future outings of the Roving Ravenous Horde, and over lunch at La Malbequeria, the idea of trying out “that restaurant out on the dock on the river” came up. Many years ago, when I first moved to BA, I’d mentioned the place, it was a restaurant called Muelle del Plata, […]

“Two Disappointing Peruvians” for very different reasons.   El Cholo de San Telmo, México 718, San Telmo – A little hole in the wall spot that has been on my list of Peruvian spots to check out for awhile.

Henry needed to go out to Colegiales to pick something up and asked me to come along, since he doesn’t know the area. I agreed, conditional on picking the place to eat. I decided on the well reviewed Centro Montañes, Av. Jorge Newbery 2818, the cultural center for the Cantabrian (north central Spain) community here in […]

It’s becoming harder and harder to find places to try – I mean, there are plenty of takeout/delivery only Chinese places in town, and the same for sushi on the Japanese side of things, but there aren’t that many “real” restaurants we haven’t tried yet.

Another Korean spot – I’m down to the last few between the two Koreatowns! I may need to publish a guide to Asian dining in BA….   It was the 11th outing of the Roving Ravenous Horde weekly lunch group (I’m actually impressed with both myself and the other folk who come, that we’ve managed a […]

There have, historically, been very few places in Buenos Aires that could be considered wine bars. Part of it seems to be the definition – this is the only city I’ve ever spent any length of time in where simply having a long wine list and offering to open a bottle at your table seems […]

Time for another round-up of a quartet of shawarma and a trio of burgers… a very mixed bag in terms of quality this time around.   Al Árabe, El Salvador 4999, Palermo – This one’s getting a lot of raves, and I wandered in to give the much touted shawarma a try…. Very, very good. […]
