    WOAH, This is one of God’s beautiful things on the face of the earth!

    Hey, let us know if you’re coming to Brazil, we can point you to a few places ;)

    I just finished a nice dinner of roasted pork loin, simply seasoned with rosemary, garlic, salt, pepper and olive oil, some new potatoes and snap peas… All was right with the world and I thought to myself it couldn’t be any better… Then I looked at this picture and it was all gone. My full tummy moaned and the green of envy set in. Just wanted to say thanks, Matt, for sharing. You evil man you! ;P

    I love BA for the food too. From Cabana Las Lilas to choripan on the side of the street. I love it all. Hope you are having fun.

    Bife de chorizo kicks stewed prunes ass! I’m a 36 year old woman and that sentence made me giggle like a 14 yr. old boy. Prunes and ass in the same sentence… ;-)

    Have a fantastic vacation in BA and everywhere else you go in Argentina. I haven’t been in nearly 15 years, but I remember loving so much. I still dream of Patagonia. And I didn’t truly understand dulce de leche until I had some dulce de leche ice cream in BA. Then I proceeded to try some at every ice cream shop we passed in every neighborhood at all hours of the day and night. The flavors offered there are like a master class and Ben & Jerry should go take it. Had it not been for the extreme heat and endless walking I surely would have gained 20 pounds.

    I was young so I didn’t give much thought to my cholesterol levels either. But between all the meat and ice cream, it was a good thing I didn’t stay too long.

    I hope you have the most wonderful and memorable travels. Thanks for sharing.

    Nunca he ido a Mi Buenos Aires querido, even thought I have lots of friends over there!. Looks like your having fun and eating a lo grande over there. Ok, do it. Have a glass of merlot on my name and eat lots of alfajores ;-)

    That was one of my favorite parts of being in BA myself! The steak there is out of this world! You are lucky to be there and enjoying it!

    Though I would have a nice glass of Argentinian red wine (which are awesome) in the background myself instead of their beers, (which are only OK..).

    Keep posting these photos to make us all jealous!

    I am from BA… and miss that sooooooooooo much. Not that the beef here in Los Angeles is bad… but still…. bife de chorizo… *sigh*
    And make sure to bring back some provoleta to grill, and some havannets (dulce de leche, of course) from Havanna.
    Have you tried the empanadas from La Querencia? (at the corner of Junin and Juncal). You could also go to Cumana… (Rodríguez Peña 1149) it’s REALLY cheap and great regional food (get ready for sucky service, though, but it’s worth it).
    Anyway… let me know if you need any pointers… and have fun! (and bring me back some soil in a jar… I never thought I’d miss BA as much as I do.

    Ohhh, this looks amazing. Being Australian, I definitely appreciate a nice piece of beef!

    I’ve never been to Argentina. Although, my first trip to South America will be later this year – Chile, in fact. Any food tips or hints for Santiago?

    funny to see you here too; am here for three weeks. make sure to visit social paraiso. dan pearlman, along with guiaoleo, had been my zagat guides and he probably lives around here [las heras + uriburu] near recoleta… in fact i just took three friends to la brigada that he reviewed in san telmo [which was a total zoo today] and went to visit/drop by brasserie petanque and chat with the owner– a swiss, ex-newyorker as dan..

    buenas!

    thanks.
