Don’t Fry For Me Argentina – Buenos Aires’ 3 Best Kept Restaurant Secrets
Argentinian cuisine is not just about mammoth cuts of steak slathered in pesto, and a sampling of some of Buenos Aires’ most adventurous and stylish eateries will clue you in to some of the dazzling invention at work in kitchens across the capital. No visit to the country would be complete without a spectacular night of dining at any of these three trailblazing hotspots.
Casa Coupage: Akin to the secret home dining revolution springing up all over the UK, a pair of knowledgeable Buenos Aires sommeliers have opened up their home to discerning diners looking for an intimate experience. With only four tables available, booking is absolutely essential. Lovingly chosen wines are paired with each seasonal dish.
Tegui: Tucked away and a real fiddle to find, all a deliberate part of its trendy, shadowy charm. It’s the third restaurant owned by chef German Martitegui (alongside fellow Buenos Aires institutions Olsen and Casa Cruz). Breathtaking imagination is the watchword here, be sure to sample the rabbit ravioli and the eucalyptus ice cream. Ask to be seated in the courtyard for the very best experience and avoid the weekend if possible, when the place tends to get very crowded.
Tô Restaurant: A fascinating fusion of Japanese and French food, Tô is the gaff to beat when it comes to serving the best sushi in town. The setting is achingly modern and minimalist, and the crowd is oh-so-hip, so, you guessed it, booking is essential, particularly if you want to snag a table on the coveted balcony overlooking the main dining room.
