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)

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)

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 […]

The place where only locals dine – tourists not to be seen: Restaurant La Criollita (19. October 2017)

The place where only locals dine – tourists not to be seen: Restaurant La Criollita (19. October 2017)

The second place which was recommended, serving local food and not hosting many tourists was “La Criollita”. And it is a local place. I guess we were the only tourists in there. And it looks more like a truly traditional place where the family is cooking and at some point in time it accidentally turned […]

When the breakfast selection is just weak: Restaurant Sheraton @ Sheraton Salta Hotel (19. October 2017)

The breakfast room in the Sheraton Salta Hotel does definitely look appealing as it is spacious, all is covered in white tablecloths and you have a nice view onto parts of the city. Besides that, the food is exhibited on round tables in the middle of the room making it look nice. And there is […]

Lovely traditional Argentinian stew – a must visit: Restaurant Doña Salta (18. October 2017)

The Doña Salta was recommended to us by quite a few people throughout our stay in Salta. Given the number of independent recommendations plus my personal experience – absolutely go here when you’re in Salta. I went for another round of empanadas as a starter. This time “Empanada de Carne (carne cortada a cuchillo)” (17 […]

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, […]
