Because I’ve been focused on my ramen quest, there have been fewer other sorts of restaurants that I’ve turned my attention to, but I’m not slacking off. At first, before my ramen binge started, I thought I might do another round of seafood parrilladas… …and Henry, myself, and a friend toddled off to La Bandurria, […]

In the Japanese Zone

While continuing my ramen quest, I decided that checking out the concentrated Japanese areas of town might be a good approach. There’s no defined “Japantown”, like there is for the Chinese and Korean communities, but there are basically two areas, one in Once, and one in Belgrano, where there are small enclaves of more traditional […]

I’ve recently been on a bit of a ramen binge. The Japanese community here in BA isn’t a huge one, and so far, the obsession with ramen that has swept across the northern hemisphere hasn’t really popped up here. I imagine it’s partially related to the general Argentine disdain for soup, and for al dente […]

There will no doubt be more and more potential hotspots for really good hamburgers opening up in BA, so I have no doubt there will be further round-ups and the list will just keep getting longer! In response to my last round-up, someone from Dellepiane Bar, Pasaje Luis Dellepiane 685 in San Nicolas, not a […]

You already know how this works, so I’m going to just jump right in. Otaku has two locations in the city (plus three in the ‘burbs), one in Belgrano, and a new one that just took over the space vacated by Leandro Varela’s excellent, but short-lived bakery (after he closed down Due Resto Cafe, one […]

The Synthesis of Eastern & Western Thoughts

I don’t know why, but I had near baseline expectations for this place. There was something about the whole “Asian tapas”, the location, the ambiance, maybe even the name, that just had me avoiding setting foot in Sintesis, José León Pagano 2689, just barely inside the Recoleta line from Palermo. I was sure it was […]

You may vaguely remember my mentioning Coya, Tucumán 874 in Centro, in regard to my search for a great ajiaco con conejo, or “chili rabbit”. I’ve continued to stop by now and again to see if they actually have the dish available – they haven’t. They’ve continued to use my photo of the dish from […]

Medley of Small Plates

The owner’s idea – bring the relaxed ambiance of a Croatian island paradise in the Mediterranean to the heart of Palermo. Without Croatian food, nor drink. Instead, a laidback style of small plate eating – not quite tapas – somewhat like the “grazing” trend that took place in Europe and North America two decades ago, […]

Step right up, it’s time for another peep at the good, the bad, the pretty and the ugly – this time, all really casual eats (though one rather expensive for casual), out and about. I’ve really got to “scribble” an updated list in my Google Keep or Evernote of Korean restaurants to try out in […]
