When it comes to dining, Buenos Aires has it all - from fine dining to hole in the walls and the quality of the food (not to mention the meat) is excellent! Of course, like any city, it is impossible to go to them all but I was seriously impressed with each and every one of the restaurants I was able to make it to. My main focus was in the Palermo neighborhood as this is where I was staying and also the area that most of the best restaurants are located. As a continuation to my previous Palermo Dining Guide Post, here are the remaining 5 places of my Top Ten list...
In a city filled with great food, stunning architecture, vibrant color and beautiful people - I must say that the trees are what stole the show. There is an enviably amount of greenery in Buenos Aires from its parks to its city streets - this is a place that truly embraces nature. Here are a few of my favorite green finds...
Buenos Aires is a city bursting with color, you will see the full range from soft pastels to vibrant jewel tones. The beautifully painted frescoes throughout La Boca to the quaint little flower shops on each corner, reveal the love for color here. This post is nothing but a shameless display of my favorite eye-candy moments...who doesn't love a little color therapy on a gray winter day?
As a lifelong resident of California, I must profess that my standard for food is pretty high (as are those of my VoyJoie clients). I spent a lot of time researching the food scene of Buenos Aires and really wanted to hit the current highlights, which I am happy to report are many! The Palermo neighborhood, in particular, has a huge array of choice and is known to be where the best restaurants in the city are housed. Below is the first half of my TOP TEN guide to Palermo Dining...trust me, it is worth going to Buenos Aires even if you do nothing other than eat! Buen Provecho!
As the second largest country in South America (and the 8th largest in the world), Argentina has a lot of ground to cover - literally. When planning my trip, it was really important to me that I get a mix of city and nature, to hit a few must-have destinations while still leaving room for things a bit off the beaten path. Loaded up on tons of visual inspiration (thanks to my VoyJoie Pinterest Boards), my first round of editing allowed me to narrow down my choices to 5 key destinations: Buenos Aires, Cordoba, Iguazu Falls, Mendoza & Patagonia.
