The perfectly tasty meat to finish the Argentina trip: Restaurant Santos Manjares (27. October 2017)

The last meal in Buenos Aires was among the best ones – quite surprisingly so given the restaurant was a rather local and simple one. The Santos Manjares is really just a down-to-earth family-run business which serves simple meals – but incredibly tasty ones. The “bife de lomo” (255 ARS) served with salad, tomatoes, and […]

A speakeasy pretending to be hard to get (in): Frank’s Bar (26. October 2017)

A speakeasy pretending to be hard to get (in): Frank’s Bar (26. October 2017)

Frank’s Bar is a speakeasy which isn’t so hidden anymore. I mean, when you get there they still totally treat it like a speakeasy. Basically, you have to say the “password” which is apparently on their Facebook page. Now, although checking the Facebook page quite extensively, I wasn’t able to find the password. So obviously, […]

No. 41 of the 50 Best Restaurants of Latin America – really??? – Restaurant Tegui (26. October 2017)

I was really looking forward to pay the Restaurant Tegui a visit – currently ranked No. 41 on the list of the 50 Best Restaurants of Latin America. Unlike in the Don Julio, the No. 21 on the same list, the reservation process wasn’t an issue at all. I even had to move the reservation […]

Solid drinks with nice interior: Bar 878 (26. October 2017)

The Bar 878 is located in the heart of Palermo and definitely worth visiting. It offers quite good drinks like the “Sofia” which just has the right amount of sweetness. However, just make sure to get it from the same waiter I got mine from as my friend had ordered a Sofia too and it […]

Oh la la – so French: Restaurant Frenchie Recoleta (26. October 2017)

Oh la la – so French: Restaurant Frenchie Recoleta (26. October 2017)

We had walked by the Frenchie about 10 days earlier and found it quite funny as it was located right next to the French embassy. Given the car rental station Sixt was also right next to it, it was time to eat something small right here. The “menu of the day” (250 ARS) which included […]

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 – […]
