Eating through Buenos Aires

Lynnester | Apr 23, 2011 12:30 PM

Spent a wonderful week in Buenos Aires and here is the food we found

Day 1 Monday - lunch at Mark’s Deli. Average food. It looked better than it tasted. Dinner at Don Julios. Good but nothing really memorable.

Day 2 Tuesday - Lunch at Cluny. Excellent. 3 course lunch with a glass of wine for 20 US. Appetizers were very good. Pretty setting and we sat outside. Dinner at La Cabrera. Yeah I know it is very touristy but had a great meal.

Day 3 Wed– We went to Palermo Hollywood to do some shopping. Was told there was good shopping in Palermo Hollywood. Not so much but did have a nice lunch at Ravelo. Very rich food. Dinner at Bobo. Excellent!! Had 5 courses with wine pairing for 55 US. Really enjoyed the whole experience at Bobo. Highly recommend.

Day 4 Thurs – Went to a Gaucho ranch and had the best empanadas of the trip. I am still thinking about those empanadas. Had a traditional Argentinean BBQ. Very good. Had pizza at El Cuartito. I wasn’t blown away by the pizza but my friends were.

Day 5 –Took the ferry over to Colonia for the day. Had the worst meal of the trip at a restaurant I can’t remember the name of but it was an awful lunch. Dinner made up for it at Sarkis Great Armenian. Great food and fun atmosphere.

Day 6 – Had empanadas and tamale’s for lunch at El Sanjuanino. The empanadas were good but the tamales were a very pleasant surprise. Excellent we ordered more they were that good. Dinner at Antares. Horrible food but the beer was good.

Day 7 – Lunch at La Cabrera. Yeah we did a repeat but was great again. Best steak of the trip. Loved that they serve champagne while you wait.

All in all it was a great trip with a lot of really good food.
