Right at the border to Chile – there’s nothing, but: Restaurant Portal de Las Cuevas (22. October 2017)

When you have been driving almost 200 kilometers from Mendoza through the Andes to the last town towards the border to Chile, you end up in Las Cuevas. When we’re speaking about a town here, we’re exaggerating a bit. There is a couple of houses, mostly restaurants, and a church. Japp, that’s it. Nothing else […]

So many waiters, empty restaurant – and still bad service: Restaurant Zampa (21. October 2017)

So many waiters, empty restaurant – and still bad service: Restaurant Zampa (21. October 2017)

At first, the Restaurant Zampa looked incredibly promising – shabby from the outside. Only one door to enter which is closed and you have to know so they’ll let you in. Somehow intriguing, somehow interesting. The place was almost empty when we had arrived and shortly after being seated, some “pizza dough with a mayonnaise […]

A welcoming change to all those parrillas: Restaurant Josefina (21. October 2017)

A welcoming change to all those parrillas: Restaurant Josefina (21. October 2017)

The Josefina is a lovely little restaurant which offers very good food for fair prices – and definitely more refined than the average place I’ve been to so far (with the exception of 1884). As a starter I went for “tartar de lomo sobre confit de puerros y verdeo, con yema a la plancha, nachos […]

RBF decoration with average breakfast: Restaurant Mirador @ Sheraton Mendoza (21. October 2017)

The breakfast selection at the Restaurant Mirador on the 17th floor of the Sheraton Mendoza is decent but definitely nothing extraordinary. You get toasted bread … … a variety of juices, among them quite interesting ones with carrots, parsley, or celery as well as a variety of cereals. The selection of sweet pastry is super […]

The most refined food experience in Argentina: Restaurant 1884 by Francis Mallmann (20. October 2017)

The most refined food experience in Argentina: Restaurant 1884 by Francis Mallmann (20. October 2017)

I had booked the Restaurant 1884 a couple of months before actually going here – and it has turned out as a great idea to pay a visit to 1884 by Francis Mallmann. And that for various reasons – not only because the food is the most refined I’ve tried in Argentina so far but […]

When they serve you rancid empanadas: Restaurant Zitto (20. October 2017)

When they serve you rancid empanadas: Restaurant Zitto (20. October 2017)

Talk about disappointment – after the next flight of the trip, we ended up quite hungry in Mendoza. And as the place we had originally sought out didn’t serve any food at the time we went to the next best thing. The Zitto is located in the pedestrian area and served at least some empanadas. […]

As simple as the food as tasty it is: Restaurant El Charrúa (19. October 2017)

After my ‘discovery’ at lunch, I had to go for an “empanada de queso” (15 ARS) again and I must say, it is one of these damn tasty things I can easily imagine to eat quite a couple more of those things. As a main course, I went for the “medallón de lomo (filete)” (300 […]

Great pisco sour with service that isn’t up to the task: Bixi Coffee House (19. October 2017)

Great pisco sour with service that isn’t up to the task: Bixi Coffee House (19. October 2017)

The Bixi Coffee House was rated the highest on TripAdvisor for coffeehouses in Salta so we decided to give it a try and take advantage of the happy hour (2 for 1) which lasts from 4 – 9pm. The “Pisco Sour (pisco, clara de huevo, jugo de limón)” (80 ARS) was actually quite good. At […]
