We had a wonderful experience with Buenos Aires Food Tours during our time here in Buenos Aires.
This unique tour group is not just about food. Aside from pigging out on all the regional delicacies, they also want their customers to gain knowledge about the local community, the history of the city, and the beautiful architecture that defines Buenos Aires.
We signed up for the San Telmo Food Tour and to be honest, I wasn’t sure what to expect going into the day. I imagined it to involve a BUNCH of walking around the city, followed by sampling small bites to eat at street vendors and markets.
However, it turned out to be a full day of eating wonderful food and drinking luscious Argentinean wines at romantic local restaurants. The day was peaceful, the ambiance was casual, and the company was superb. In addition, Jorge was an incredibly warm and knowledgeable local tour guide (and avid foodie) that was educating us on the local history and traditions of Buenos Aires.
Jorge started the day off by walking our group through Mercado San Telmo to teach us about the notorious cuts of meat in Argentina. During our time in the Mercado, he had us interacting with quirky butchers who were enthusiastic to show us the ropes to the world of meat.
We then moved onto our first restaurant of the day, Pasaje Solar, which is situated in a charming house from the late nineteenth century. Here, Jorge ordered wine for the table and a multitude of plates including pickled eggplant, pizza with black olive dough, fried eggplant with tomato and cheese, flank steak caprese, Spanish tortilla, fried chard, and stuffed mushrooms... Yum!
As if this wasn't enough food and wine, we then headed to Resto Del Viejo for lunch (an old fashioned fancy hotel restaurant) where we ordered a couple bottles of wine for the table along with veal Milanese, pork tenderloin, and sweet potato jelly and cheese.
To cap off the day, we went to the oldest cafe and bar in Buenos Aires, Bar Plaza Dorrego, for espresso and shelled peanuts.
All of the meals were exquisite, the dining at the restaurants never felt rushed, and the group had an amazing time getting to know each other and interact with Jorge. It also was an incredible value for your money with all the food and wine we consumed!
