Wow, time flew by. I still have the feeling that I have just arrived in Buenos Aires. Now three weeks have passed. In addition to the Spanish language school, I have experienced many great things in these three weeks. Thats why I’ve created for you guys a Travel Guide for Buenos Aires.
Palermo is my favorite neighborhood in Buenos Aires. There you will find many coffee stores, restaurants, various shops, and many colorful graffiti & wall paintings. A quarter in which I would have been able to hang out for many days. The nightlife is also really cool. There are many great bars, restaurants, clubs and cool music everywhere.
It is one of the most famous neighborhoods in the capital of Argentina. The area is especially notable for its extraordinary colorful homes. La Boca is considered the birthplace of tango dance. As for restaurants, I can not recommend any. We stayed in a restaurant that looked cute, but bad food was served. But otherwise, it is a wonderful area.
#San Telmo Market
What to do on a Sunday in Buenos Aires? Quite simply, off to the market in the district of San Telmo. The market is a mix of a flea market, antique market and street party. And this every Sunday.
The tango belongs to Argentina as the samba to Brazil. And in the city of Buenos Aires, it is the Tango Mecca. Tango is danced in many places during the day and the evening. I tried it too. It was fun as well. But with me, that just did not look as elegant as with the Argentines. There are many dance schools and also tango shows all over Buenos Aires, where the spectacle can be watched or attended.
#Dinner in La Hormiga
A very tasty and stylish restaurant in Palermo. We were there twice for dinner. In addition to the typical Argentine food such as meat and empanadas, it has also delicious pasta, pizzas, and salads.
#Breakfast in Möoi
The Möoi is a restaurant chain in Buenos Aires. One of them is located in the neighborhood Recoleta, in which we also had our apartment. (Recoleta is, by the way, a very nice and quite neighborhood).
The style of the restaurant is a mix of minimalist and chic. In addition to the breakfast, you can also have lunch or dinner. At breakfast, there is everything your heart desires. From the classics such as bread, eggs, cheese, and meat, there are also breakfast cereal with yogurt and fruits, various fresh smoothies and many gluten-free and vegan choices.
#Empanadas from Brozziano
Empanadas are a typical Argentinian specialty and can be found practically on every corner and every kiosk. The dumplings stuffed with meat, cheese, ham, vegetables or corn can be eaten as a starter, as a main course or just for in between. In short, actually always and they taste divine 🙂
We have eaten many of them during this time. The best, however, we ate at the Brozziano.
I think there are no Argentinians who do not always drink mate tea. And with constantly, I really mean constantly. You often see people walking through the streets with their little mate mug and a jug of hot water.
The tea mug is filled with dried leaves of the mate shrub. Then the hot water is poured directly. The tea is drunk with a drinking straw named bombilla. Thereafter, the water is repeatedly re-poured.
#Party at Uptown Bar in Palermo
The Uptown Bar, one of the coolest bars I have ever been. As the name suggests, the bar was created in the style of the New York underground scene. To get in, you pass a subway station and a metro. Then you get into the bar. They serve great cocktails and good music, the food with the many tapas is highly recommended as well.
