Best resturant I've found in Buenos Aires to date

My mom came to visit me last week and we decided to splurge one night on a 9 course meal at a highly ranked restaurant in BA.  I've always avoided this place because it's far away in San Telmo and $195 pesos a person.  Playing the "convert to dollars so I don't feel bad about myself" game, $50 a person seemed like a steal and we gave it a shot.  I'm a total food snob and don't think I've eaten at a restaurant that I haven't said was great for BA standards, but I've had better at home until now!  Aramburu Resto is so beyond good for BA standards that it even ranks among the best restaurants I've been to EVER.  It was so interesting and fun.  Everything tasted great, the service was fantastic, and overall well worth the price coming from someone who drops 200 pesos on meals relatively often.  If you don't want to spoil the fun, don't look at my pictures and just make a reservation and check this place out ASAP.  In fact, let me know when you're going because I'm down to go again.

  1. It all looks delicious, but it's one of those classic I'm-going-to-pay-out-the-ass-and-then-go-home-and-pour-myself-a-huge-bowl-of-cereal dinners. This is why I can't hang with expensive food.

  2. Actually it was too much food. My only complaint was that the portions were too generous and I wanted to puke by the end. So, well worth the money.
