Our new apartment is really close to a neighborhood called Las Cañitas. Although not an official barrio, it’s steadily becoming more established as a trendy, gastronomic area. Now the thing you have to know about Buenos Aires, as much as I love it, the food is generally pretty mediocre. Maybe we were spoiled living in NYC for many years, or maybe we just know better, but if you’re eating anything outside of Argentine cuisine, there’s about a 90% chance you’re going to be disappointed. When you say to people you’re going to live in Argentina, the first thing they tell you is how good the beef is – or so they’ve heard. Well, I can confirm the hype. The quality of the meat is excellent at a very affordable price. A little too affordable for your arteries. There’s a saying here that translates, more or less, to “A meal without meat is not a meal.” They love their carne, and it really shows in how good the asado/parrilla/grilled foods are.
