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!
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.
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!
This is an app specifically for restaurants in Buenos Aires, so you can’t go wrong. The only downfall is the small app store 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!
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!
