With parillas, cafes, panaderias, empanadas, and pizza lining up every corner, it can be hard to decide where to eat, or to even know which restaurants to try first. Luckily, our fellow foodies of the world have taken on the task of finding the best restaurants for us!

foodapp 300x176 Best Food Blogs and Apps for Buenos Aires

Pickupthefork.com

Pretty much the Buenos Aires restaurant bible. The writer of this blog writes funny and entertaining articles, but most importantly her taste in food is on point and her blog is extremely organized. If you’re looking for a restaurant, all you have to do is go to her restaurant guide and put in filters for what you want, which include the rating, the barrio, and the type of cuisine. She ranks everything from closed door restaurants to speakeasy bars to heladerias. Since you may not have the time to visit every restaurant in Buenos Aires, it’s great to have a blog that weeds out the bad meals from your life.

FoodSpotting

One great app to have, in Buenos Aires or elsewhere, is FoodSpotting. This is the ultimate tinder of food, except with a much higher chance of falling in love. FoodSpotting locates your current location and then you can swipe through mouthwatering pictures of food that people post near you. If a restaurant looks particularly appetizing, you can save it and go there later. There are also filters for best dishes, nearest restaurants, places that need reservations, places that deliver, and so much more. So download it and get swiping!

Tenedor Libre

This is an app specifically for restaurants in Buenos Aires, so you can’t go wrong. The only downfall is the small appstore fee of 99 cents, but that’s a small price to pay to never eat badly again. There are restaurant rankings and reviews from all over the city. It also has a GPS that allows you to search for restaurants nearby, and you can filter by barrio and cuisine. The app is only available in Spanish, so you can also practice your Spanish skills at the same time!

TheLostAsian.com

Another food blog, this is great for reading some witty articles and looking at wonderfully photographed good. This blogger has all the important categories covered, like brunch, “cheap and yummy,” and of course, asian food. While her foreign food reviews make the blog unique, there are also plenty of classic Argentine restaurants listed that are worth a try!

992370 measuring spices The Argentine Food Guide for Spanish students in Buenos Aires. Part 4
For any Spanish students in Buenos Aires this winter, we encourage you to spend at least one night at home in order to cook a traditional Argentine meal.  We know it is easy to go out to the many trendy and delicious restaurants in the city but creating your own argentine meal and then bringing home the recipe will put a little bit of Argentina back in your home country.

Chimichurri

Chimichurri is a popular spice filled sauce in Argentina, the name coming from an Irish man who invented the sauce, Jimmy McCurry, that is used for mainly as a sauce for grilled meat. The name changed from Jimmy McCurry as it seemed too many people had a difficult time pronouncing it, and was shortened to Chimichurri not too long after.  Chimichurri can be found throughout Argentina, in both restaurants and supermarkets, however is best served when it has been home prepared, as it is at its freshest form.

Ingredients

(Amounts of each ingredient depend on how much or how little Chimchurri you would like to prepare, and of course the strength of the garlic, parsley, and chilis. In general, the olive oil and red vinegar should be similar amounts, for the rest, experiment with your chimichurri and find out your own preferred recipe!)

Olive oil
Red Wine Vinegar
Water
Freshly chopped oregano
Freshly chopped parsley
2 garlic cloves, chopped into thin slices
Chili pepper (for more spicy)
Salt

Instructions:

Place all of the ingredients into a blender and blend on low until the consistency is quite smooth.

Chimichurri is best to be left at room temperature for a few hours in order for the flavours to settle.

What is your favorite way to enjoy Chimichurri?
