yummy places to eat

I had another yummy meal at 1 of my local favorites: Origen.  The corner of Humberto I and Peru here in San Telmo.  One of tonite’s specials of the day was an amazing “Wok Hindu”.  It had grain rice, bean sprouts, zucchini, sesame seeds, diced chicken, peanuts, and pears.  IT was incredibly tasty – such a diverse flavor.  Love this healthy place to eat.   I am so glad to have it.

Another great new place that I found this trip was/ is Cafe San Juan.  On San Juan near Balcarce: San Juan 450. phone 4300-1112.  We found this place in the Guia Oleo.  What a delicious place.  Rommel and I took Katie there for a late Graduation present.

we enjoyed tapa sized appetizers of brie and sundried tomatoes, tortilla de papa with morones on toast, then main dishes of rabbit in port wine sauce, brochette of shrimp, like a paella.  Then a delicious wine to wash it all down!  We also had some delicious desserts.  There was an apple tartlike thing with homemade cinnamon ice cream.  Then a mousselike treat with all kinds of flavors in it!

The last place I want to mention is Taberna baska on Chile and Tacuari.  (chile 980)  Another lovely meal.  Delicious options.  They even have “centolla” – the crab from the Patagonia area.  It has some really interesting options including paella and shrimps and calamari.  And some great sounding dishes.  I hope to go their again.

So – now we get ready for Mendoza.  We leave Sunday – tomorrow in the evening – there will be 8 of us.  Looking forward to getting away from the city.
