I’m feeling like “Bite Marks” may have hit its upper limit. I want to approach the mini-reviews in another manner. I’ll be giving it some thought, and am open to suggestions. A long one this time, and as usual, a range of types of eats – breakfast food, pizza, pasta, and sandwiches. Bartola, Junín 1761, Recoleta […]

KU:L, Av. Carabobo 1107, Flores – Apparently open for quite some time, I’d not noticed it before. Turns out that’s probably because the only lunchtime they’re open is on Sundays (and then dinnertime every night except Tuesday), and second, that the front is basically a dark green plastic with no indication that it’s a restaurant, […]

I mentioned stopping in at a kosher pizzeria in my last Bite Marks, more or less on a whim, but no doubt fired a bit by a conversation about kosher restaurants I had with a rabbi friend of mine here. I don’t expect this to become a full fledged project, but I’m finding myself curious […]

Restaurante Chino Yong An – Av. Regimiento de Patricios 390, La Boca – It seems difficult to believe, but at least based on all the online searching I’ve done, this is the only Chinese restaurant in all of La Boca. I really don’t buy that, and if anyone has suggestions for more, let me know. […]

Snack Meat. Mostly shawarma. But tacos and a burger too. Tarabish, Charcas 4309, Palermo – Taking over the space that used to be La Alhambra. Small spot offering up an array of Lebanese food (although the day we visited they’d sold out of almost everything the night before and out of a fairly extensive menu all […]

Let’s go a little different this time around. No burgers or tacos or shawarmas or pizzas (well, there will be a pizza involved, but, well, you’ll see). No real focus to my wanderings and nibblings. And, away we go! Bread + Butter – You may remember my equivocal review of Söder just shy of a […]
