Best Selection of Restaurants is in Las Cañitas

Thursday, June 25th, 2009

Many tourists visit Buenos Aires without having dinner in Las Cañitas. It’s a shame. Las Cañitas is, in my opinion, the best restaurant zone in all of Buenos Aires. Las Cañitas is a small neighborhood just east of Avenida Dorrego and just south of the Polo grounds (El Campo Argentino de Polo). Technically, it’s part […]

A native of Buenos Aires fluent in English, German and of course Spanish, Pedro offers guided tours that explore the hidden treasures of the city.  I asked Pedro about his favorite restaurants, shops, cafes and things to see and do in BA.

Buenos Aires’ Closed-Door Restaurants

Monday, March 9th, 2009

One of the most interesting trends in the Buenos Aires restaurant scene is closed-door restaurants, also known as restaurantes a puertas cerradas or simply puertas cerradas. These restaurants aren’t really restaurants at all but rather dinners served in the homes of private chefs, or in exclusive private clubs. Alejandro Langer, chef at La Cocina Discreta in […]

1810 Cocina Regional Serves Traditional (and Tasty) Argentine Cuisine

Wednesday, February 4th, 2009

1810 Cocina Regional specializes in traditional, regional Argentine food. Eating here is almost like having a home-cooked Argentine meal. Empanadas are a house specialty. If you’ve never tried an empanada, it’s a pastry stuffed with a savory filling. The most popular fillings are ground meat (carne), ham and cheese (jamón y queso) and ground corn […]

A Typical Breakfast in Buenos Aires

Wednesday, January 14th, 2009

Breakfast in Buenos Aires is light and relaxed. There’s no rush. Take your time. Read the paper — most cafes provide them. And best of all, enjoy excellent espresso-style coffee. Maybe it’s because they dine so late at night. Or perhaps they are watching their wallet or waistline. Whatever the reason, seldom do Porteños start […]

Best Steak in Buenos Aires? Try Cabaña Las Lilas

Wednesday, January 14th, 2009

I haven’t tried every steak restaurant in Buenos Aires (though I’d like to), but I doubt I’ll find a better steak than the one I had at Cabaña Las Lilas. And not only is the food delicious but the service is unbelievably attentive. Dine here and you’ll have swarms of wait staff at your beck […]

Trendy Atmosphere, Good Food at Bar 6

Tuesday, December 30th, 2008

There are a lot of trendy, popular restaurants in Palermo, especially around Plaza Cortázar, but Bar 6 is one of my favorites. It’s ultra-stylish, and the food is excellent. The high ceilings, good sound system and cool ambience make this a good place for dinner or just drinks. Most of the tables and seats are […]

Stuff Yourself with Meat at La Cholita

Tuesday, December 16th, 2008

La Cholita is one of my favorite inexpensive restaurants in Buenos Aires and I consider it a real find. I discovered this place in 2007. An Argentine friend with a big appetite for meat and not a lot of money in his wallet recommended it to me. I’ve been going back regularly ever since. There’s […]
