Great Italian café in the pedestrian area: Gran Café Tortoni (18. October 2017)

The Gran Café Tortoni is an instituion in Buenos Aires, founded in 1858 it has been around forever. And it is, therefore, absolutely well-visited. The waiters mostly look like they have been here for more than a decade each (some young ones exempt from that observation). And they behave accordingly: Knowing what they do, relaxed, […]

Where the meat can be cut with a spoon: Restaurant La Brigada (17. October 2017)

While the Don Julio is the place where all the international people go, the La Brigada is where the locals go. The place is split in two areas: One which is a bit simpler in terms of interior design and one which is a bit fancier. I suppose you only get to the fancy part […]

Amazing Argentinian sausage sandwiches: Restaurant Chori (17. October 2017)

The food joint Chori has recently been awarded for re-inventing the traditional Argentinian sausage sandwich so it was definitely time to give it a try. I went for the “El Regional de Cordero (cebolla roja, yogurt, pepino, hierbabuena, batata)” (110 ARS) accompanied by a “Ensalada de Papa” (50 ARS). The sandwich was absolutely delicious – […]

Rather disappointing breakfast: Sheraton Executive Lounge @ Sheraton Libertador Hotel (17. October 2017)

The breakfast at the Sheraton Executive Lounge in the Sheraton Libertador Hotel is, frankly speaking, relatively disappointing. There isn’t too much of a selection – the first day I had breakfast here, there was only cold scrambled egg left making it absolutely not enjoyable. The selection of fruits is decent as well as the selection […]

The best meat – with some service fails: Restaurant Parrilla Don Julio (16. October 2017)

The best meat – with some service fails: Restaurant Parrilla Don Julio (16. October 2017)

The Parrilla Don Julio is No. 21 on the list of the 50 Best restaurants of Latin America. And I must say, in terms of meat quality, it absolutely deserves that ranking. However, there was a little hick-ups when we arrived. I had booked the table in February, so a good 8 months ahead. However, […]

Great place to people watch: Restaurant Sans Panes y Cerveza (16. October 2017)

When you fly a short leg around lunch time, it is always leading to hunger attacks a couple of hours later. And when the ‘attack’ finally hit, we were close to ‘Sans Panes y Cerveza’ at Plaza Serrano. And I must say, while I was a bit skeptical at first, it turned out to be […]
