Palermo Food Tour



Author: elizabeth


Day 1 - Buenos Aires, Palermo


Start off the day with an early set-menu lunch at lovely Freud & Fahler - make sure to arrive early to nab one of the few sidewalk tables on this charming corner. Spend the afternoon strolling around Palermo Soho's shops and boutiques before grabbing a few cold Coronas and perhaps a 'taco al pastor' or pulled pork taco at La Fabrica del Taco, BA's most authentic and wonderfully kitschy Mexican joint. Dinner tonight is at Cho-Cha Abuela, where the classic diner-style decor and low-key food set the stage for a relaxed meal on the patio. Hoof it over to Bangalore before happy hour ends at 10pm for drink specials. The house concoction is a pitcher of Bombay Sapphire gin & tonic, a steal for the quality and the best nightcap to share with friends.

Day 2 - Buenos Aires


Get the day going the right way with a fresh brunch at b-Blue, where muffins, fruit smoothies, and homemade breads and pastries will energize you for the day ahead. Get out into the sunshine for an afternoon of sightseeing before turning in for early evening cocktails at Lelé de Troya. A cheese platter paired with regional wine is another excellent option to tie you over until dinner, which is late by anyone else's standards, usually starting at 9 or 10pm. When the time does come, though, go claim your reservation at Azema Exotic Bistro, one of Palermo's most popular dining spots and home to an eclectic menu of French-Asian dishes that will get your mouth watering. After you've filled up sufficiently, take your full belly and a friend or two over to Casa Cruz, a modern BA classic for its lavish decor, chic drink offerings, and exclusive clientele.

Day 3 - Buenos Aires


Today will be another jam-packed day of eating, starting off light with an organic vegetarian lunch at Bio, keeping it simple in preparation for a multiple destination dinner. When the clock strikes 8, be an early bird at Las Cabras, one of Palermo's favorite steakhouses (where it can be impossible to snatch a seat come 10pm). Pop open a bottle of malbec and order some starters of provoleta (grilled cheese) and chorizos (Spanish sausage) to share. As the place starts to fill up, pay the bill and head over to Sarkis, BA's massive, most-loved Middle Eastern eatery and one of the best deals in town. The institution doesn't take reservations meaning you may have to wait for seating - luckily you already grabbed something to chow on ahead of time. After a family-style meal of hummus, falafel, and stuffed grape leaves, wind down with an after-dinner capper at hip Bar Uriarte.

Day 4 - Buenos Aires


Sunday is brunch day in Buenos Aires, where the concept exists only thanks to foreigners and their imported customs. The best brunch in town is at ultra-modern Scandinavian resto Olsen, where a combination menu allows guests to choose just how much they intend to indulge. Expect the meal to stretch on for hours, especially if the house vodkas start pouring. Spend a few hours walking off the meal around Palermo's weekend street markets before checking into the fantastic Japanese-Peruvian fusion headquarters of Osaka. Request a rooftop table in the case of pleasant weather and start ordering - there is nothing on this menu that can disappoint.

Day 5 - Buenos Aires


Keep up your eating stamina on day 5 with a light and spicy Southeast Asian-infused lunch at Sudestada, one of BA's favorite Asian spots. Every plate comes with the option of mild, hot, or extra-hot to tend to every palate. Dinner tonight is traditional Argentinean steakhouse at La Cabrera, possible the most popular parrilla in town. Follow up with drinks and dessert at Tegui, a super-minimal, fashion-forward restaurant brought to us by the same winning crew behind Casa Cruz and other chichi eateries in Palermo.

Day 6 - Buenos Aires


Start off day 6 with a vegetarian lunch at the exquisite Artemisia eatery, where everything from the bread basket to the homemade lemonade is sure to please. Grab evening drinks at Thymus before yet another steak dinner at Miranda, another favorite parrilla where reservations are a must. Wrap up the evening with a stop off at La Peña del Colorado, a folkloric club where visitors can catch a glimpse of authentic Argentinean country lifestyle, complete with live music, dancing, and the most basic list of Andean wines and local brews, like the favorite Fernet and Coke.

Day 7 - Buenos Aires


Fill up on your last day in BA, starting at hip French bistro Oui Oui, where the fresh-daily pastries and cakes are perfect for breakfast, and the omelettes, sandwiches, and salads are an excellent option for lunch. Once your hunger kicks in again a few hours later, get your belly over to Ceviche for an appetizer of sushi or ceviche and a delicious pisco sour. Next up is Cluny for a dinner chosen from a list of modern Argentinean dishes. Close out the day - and your stay - with after-dinner drinks at Acabar, a charming neighborhood bar with funky decor and a boisterous atmosphere.
