It’s like political memes, once they start, they just multiply unchecked. I knew I was nearing the end of the Chronicles of Shawarma. Not that there wouldn’t be the occasional new spot to check out, but I’d searched, I’d received suggestions, and I was pretty sure I had as comprehensive of a list as I […]

There didn’t seem to be many more places in town to continue RamenQuest (yes, that’s what I’m calling it now), so I’d figured they’d just make a now and then appearance. But then, a trio came onto my radar, so off and running, chopsticks and spoon in hand. Hey, they’re not scissors. I’d heard murmurings […]

I’m going to go kind of simple and straightforward on this one, as there are a whole lot of shawarma to get through, and this post brings the current total of shawarma tried to 53. I decided to just sort of blow out the entire list of the pending ones over a few weeks (more than […]

The plan was to add to the slowly growing list of spots for ramen in town. Rumor had it that Bistro Tokyo (variously spelled with Bistro or Bistrot, and Tokyo or Tokio, depending on whether you’re looking at the sign out front, the chopstick holders, the menu, or the bill), Virrey del Pino 2551, Belgrano, had […]

I don’t know whether it’s that burgers are the new black, or the new pink, or if someone decided that the sequel to the Field was Grill of Dreams and that if you char a meat patty they will come, but “gourmet burgers” are appearing like the proverbial mushrooms after the rainstorm. It’s like sushi […]

Gone South

I debated. A lot. I mean, we’ve all read about and heard about the “New Nordic Cuisine”. And sometimes it sounds fascinating. Other times, not so much. It’s one thing to forage about when your restaurant is out in the wilderness and you have access to amazing natural products, it’s quite another in an urban […]

I can’t help it, I love going to food festivals. Be they out on the street, in an exhibition hall, or, well, anywhere. Sometimes they’re just “more of the same”, and sometimes, there are little discoveries to be made. We’re going to start off a bit on the edge of the concept, not a festival, […]

Let’s jump right in, there’s lots to cover and you all know how this goes…. The Pasta is Inn Jumping off with La Locanda, José León Pagano 2697, here in Recoleta. It’s an Italian restaurant that’s the darling of many aficionados. I’d only been there once before and had an odd experience, so I’d never […]

I almost just want to leave this review in the category of “a picture is worth a thousand words”. It’s been five years since I reviewed Cocina Sunae, a closed door restaurant offering up ridiculously good pan-Asian cooking off in Villa Ortuzar, just a bit outside the dining center of Palermo. At the end of […]
