The Sentinel of Villa Crespo

Roughly three months ago I had dinner at Paladar Buenos Aires, one of the other well regarded closed door restaurants here in town. I had a delightful dinner and enjoyed all the food, loved the ambiance… all the good stuff. Pablo and Ivana were warm and welcoming, we were all taken care of well, it […]

I originally set out to do a little change-up on my Bite Marks series of quick looks at spots, more or less precursors to searching out places worthy of more in-depth reviews. I had this idea in my mind about doing something with Numb3rs that almost immediately began to feel like it was more work […]

I was mildly miffed. Not seriously or anything, but mildly. The folk behind the Astrid & Gastón juggernaut weren’t biting. Big, pre-opening lunch about six weeks ago with invitations out to pretty much all my colleagues here in town with food blogs, columns, etc. to showcase the opening of La Mar Cebicheria, Arévalo 2024, Palermo.

First off, I haven’t abandoned you all, I’ve just been working on redesigning my personal website where I archive all my published articles and such, and it’s taking more time than I thought it would, around dinners and cooking classes and all that. On to the latest hotspots. Just an attitude comment. As things like […]

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 […]
