Among other Asian dining, we continue here with a couple of entries from Sundays with Steven, the friend I’ve been exploring Flores with – we’ve made it a regular Sunday lunch for five weeks in a row now, checking a new spot each time.   Baik Kul Samgyupsal (White Dove Barbecue Shop), Av. Carabobo 1583 – […]

Amore’s Pizza, Arenales 1721, Recoleta – This recently opened place here in the ‘hood smells delightful when you wander down the block. I’ve passed it by a couple of times since it opened and tucked it away in my mind to order up from them soon. And then, one day, passing by, I thought I’d […]

You already know how this works…. Buena Suerte, Cuenca 1339, Villa Santa Rita – There are several Chinese “rotiserias”, primarily takeout spots, called Buena Suerte, or Good Luck, in various parts of town (in fact, I could probably do a whole post just running around comparing them). I don’t think there’s any relationship between them other […]

Time for a few more burgers. I’ve been keeping them in reserve for just this moment…. Baum Cervecería, Honduras 5720, Palermo – Anyone who’s been in BA in the last year or so has seen the exponential rise of craft beer bars. Two years ago, you were lucky if you could find a craft beer […]

A real hodge-podge of different cuisines and foodstuffs and all the rest this time around! And, a long one (though not so much in words as in photos). Quotidiano, Av. Callao 1299, Recoleta – A new spot, just opened up, serving pretty much all day long, lunch and dinner focused on Italian food – particularly […]

Since this time around the focus is on Japanese and Korean, I suppose I could have subbed in for “chop suey” one of the various similar terms or dishes – chapusui, chuuka-don, happousai, japchae – but then I did include one Chinese spot, so I’m sticking with the plan. Not a lot in the way of […]

Time for another focus on Nature’s Most Perfect Food, the pizza, and a trio of offerings. Los 36 Billares, Av. de Mayo 1271, Monserrat – It takes a certain amount of chutzpah to make a major change to a successful club after more than a century in existence. Opened in 1894, this bi-level space was designated years […]

For anyone who doesn’t in-depth read the occasional comments that pop up here on my posts (and why don’t you? and why don’t more of you comment here? (I actually get a fair number of comments on posts on my Facebook timeline – I think that’s drawn away some of the interchange here.)) – on […]

Mercadito Latino, Carlos Calvo 488, San Telmo – A relatively new spot, and yet another of those offering up “Latin American street food”. Here, however, although with a menu of tacos, burritos, arepas, salads, etc., much like some of the others I’ve checked out recently, the pricing is a bit more “restaurant”, though the space […]
