food markets

by ozheidi

I would like to go to a food market and try and cook a real argentina meal during my stay.I have done a little research about food markets.Is Mercado del progreso in cabillito or feria modelo de belgrano both great and worth the visit?...as staying in buenos aires in an apartment for 2 weeks would love to get olives and cheese and cold meats as well!!!We are staying in recoleta in October.Or do you know of any other big produce markets that i should go to,even just to have a look.

Check out the covered market (built in 1897) at the corner of Carlos Calvo and Bolivar St, in San Telmo (open Tues-Sun 10am-7pm) for fresh produce - fruit, vegetables, meat, etc. The Feria de San Telmo antiques market in nearby Plaza Dorrego is a Sunday-only affair and packed, the rest of the week is much quieter and there are more food sellers in the market.

Re: food markets

I think your question have two possible responses: 1) The Food Markets (as places to visit) and 2) cooking a real argentinian food (what I understand it is your question).

You do not need an special market to cook a good argentinian food. But I wonder which would be for you a "real argentinian food".

Most people believe that the asado (barbecue) is our food. If you believe so, I think it will be difficult to cook it in an appartment kitchen, your appartment should have a "parrilla" outside. Ask for it!

What would be easier to you to cook are the "bifes a la plancha", most appartments would have this cooking unit (the plancha) and you may found good bifes (steaks) anywhere. If you find true "bifes de chorizo de ternera" (de chorizo means boneless and ternera is a small cow, then a tender meat). True for me relates to true ternera.

You should heat the plancha with some drops of oil (to avoid the meat stick in the plancha) and put the bifes one side. When you see some small drops of liquid above you put the bife the other side and when the drops are again, they are ready: a punto. The problem four you would be to set the heat power needed in accordante to the beef thikness. Thicker meat needs lower power or you will burn the meat.

You shoult eat them with an "ensalada criolla con cebolla" which is not the best for me, but this is a tradition. Please, have a good red wine

You should know that most people at home feel that a "milanesa a caballo" is perhaps a good exponent our our cooking dayle style. This is a fried breaded thiny bife with french fries and and a pair of fried eggs.

Enjoy, and sorry for my English

Travel Tips for Buenos Aires

Having said that, Buenos Aires...

by Luis_Alberto

Having said that, Buenos Aires has by far more European than Latin flavor to It. Including its people, which are mainly descendentans of Italian, Spanish and from other European countries. Buenos Aires, also has the largest Jewish community in all of South America. There is also a large, Lebanese and Middle Eastern community in this City. In any case, people watching is a favorite in Buenos Aires. Way back when, I was there, It was extremely hot, around 35 degres celcius, still I decided to take a walk from the hotel exploring the city. When I left the hotel, I got some of the dirtiest look from other people, I did not understand, why?, later on, I found out, since I was wearing shorts, this was a (no,no), in such a sophisticated city, people will frowned upon you. I really do not know, if they still do, at this time.

Tantalising Tango

by SabrinaSummerville

Buenos Aires is the home of Tango.

While you are in the city do your best to visit a tango show. I thought that as I hadn't booked in advance I wouldn't have a hope of getting to a show at a few hours notice, but in fact our hotel had a choice of two available to us.

We were also offered a third show at a new hotel, but be wary as this is not a tango show.

One interesting thing to note is that although Argentina is recognised as the birth place of Tango, in fact the most famous tango music of all, La Cumparsita, was composed in Uruguay.

Cats

by sabrina_florida

There are loads of stray cats in Buenos Aires... most of them live in groups in parks, hospitals or abandoned houses. There's always someone who takes pity of them and feeds them. You'll see many at Jardin Botanico (Botanical Gardens).

Hidden treasure

by TheWanderingCamel

Unless you were looking for the Piazzolla Tango Centro de Arte, you could easily pass by the entrance to the arcade that leads of Florida at No 165, down near the Peru subte station but, believe me, the very ordinary entrance and parade of shops down the length of the Galería Güemes hide a real gem of Buenos Aires early 20th century architecture and the one of most beautiful interiors in the city.

A splendid mix of styles, Art Nouveau, Neoclassical and a touch of Gothic, all marble, bronzes and magnificent glass, the 14 story building was designed by the same Italian architect as the Cafe Molina. With a lower level theatre, cabaret venue and restaurant, the 116 meter long shopping arcade on the ground floor, offices overlooking calle San Martin, apartments overlooking Florida all culminating in another restaurant with an observation deck on the 14th floor, there was nothing to in the city to compare with it when the doors opened in 1915. One famous resident French writer Antoine de Saint-Exupery.

As with so many of BA's wonderful buildings, the depression and political upheavals of the 20th century saw it fall into neglect and disuse, the theatre close and the grand fittings become shabby and worn. A recent restoration has restored all the wonderful details to their former glory - the glass domes in the roof are stunning, the marble gleams and the gilding looks like new. Even the theatre has ben reopened to house the Piazzolla Tango show in what is considered by many to be the most beautiful Tango palace in the city.

Shopping for all things literary....

by VeronicaG about El Ateneo

El Ateneo is primarily a book store, but has other merchandise, too. Our son suggested that we stop here and we were glad he did. I've never seen so many books in one place before! He was hunting something to take back to the kids--he found a fantastic book about dinosaurs.

We perused the book shelves and the place in general. It was a beautiful former theater that has been renovated to house a bookstore. There are traces of its old glory-- elaborate carvings and touches of elegance that came from a bygone day. When you are in Buenos Aires, be sure to visit El Ateneo! Books, CD's, postcards Average
