Known for its world-class Malbec, Argentina is slowly warming up to another liquor: Cinzano. Developed in faraway Turin in the eighteenth century, Cinzano is an Italian vermouth characterized by its sweet yet full-bodied texture. Being a country of immigrants, Cinzano made the transatlantic journey to Argentina along with the large Italian population that migrated to the country’s shores. If you haven’t had Cinzano before, you’re missing … Continue reading 5 CINZANO COCKTAILS YOU NEED TO TRY RIGHT NOW

My Two Course Lunch at UCO Restaurant

Something big happened today. I stepped out of Palermo Soho. For those of you who know me, this is huge. In my two months here, I haven’t ventured out of Buenos Aires’ culinary and shopping mecca too many times. “Why did you leave the best place in South America?” you might ask. Two words. Fierro Hotel. Palermo Hollywood. Run by Irish chef Ed Holloway, UCO … Continue reading My Two Course Lunch at UCO Restaurant

Refined Casual Cuisine: Helena Bar and Resto

Despite the wide variety of cuisines, there’s this one place I’m obsessed with. It’s called Helena Bar and Resto. Located right in the middle of Soho, but shielded from the hustle and bustle of some of its more crowded streets, Helena is a real hidden … Continue reading Refined Casual Cuisine: Helena Bar and Resto

Shop and Eat till you Drop: San Telmo’s Sunday Fair

The Sunday fair in San Telmo is one of those places on every tourist’s to-do-list. It’s practically heaven for those interested in buying mate pots, leather handbags, postcards, knives (yes, knives), jewelry, cheap Chinese-made sunglasses, and other fun stuff. Albeit, I’m not a huge fan of shopping, but there’s something about the aggressive vendors and massive crowds that makes the fair a lot less attractive to me. … Continue reading Shop and Eat till you Drop: San Telmo’s Sunday Fair

L-art-ente

Despite it’s rampant coffee culture, Buenos Aires cafes can serve some really disappointing coffee. I’ve had too many experiences of weak coffee, too much cinnamon in my coffee, or being served something that’s supposed to be coffee but really isn’t.  Enter Lattente, the answer to my prayers for good coffee. Lattente is a small cafe which specializes in, you guessed it–lattes. It’s also super close … Continue reading L-art-ente
