Why not! Getting the most out of a city’s culinary force is always done by dining across the spectrum, from little hole in the walls to fine dining, and I certainly am not going to pass up the opportunity to experience food from an El Bulli graduate. Located in the stunning Faena hotel, El Bistro is a visual treat, being all decked out in white with tinges of red, with unicorn heads gazing upon you as you feast your way through the evening. One almost feels like Alice in Wonderland! Tasting menu? Yes please!
This is THE land of meat and honey! With steak of legendary renown and, of course, the wine needs no introductions either. Buenos Aires is a city that absorbs you, falling more and more in love with it with each passing day. As far as the food is concerned, there is an eatery to suit every taste, but really, what one should be eating, is all matter of the moo-cow, and there’s one restaurant that will put even Fergus Henderson to shame when nose to tail eating is concerned. La Brigada in the neighbourhood of San Telmo is full to the brim of locals who come here for the only offering on the menu – carne! Not to mention the astounding wine list of bottles from every bodega in the country. The restaurant too, is a delightfully cosy and comfortable space full of pictures and football memorabilia and extremely friendly waiters who carve the meat with a spoon (yes! a spoon – tender beef or sharp spoons? I think the first option is definitely the case!)
