Pani – Buenos Aires

Pani – Buenos Aires

Pani is hit or miss. Pani’s forté is pastries and coffee. Expanded menu with sandwiches, quiche and salads is hit or miss. Service is hit or miss too. They have one of the best salad’s in the city. But one of the worst sandwiches. Our advice. Order the cheesecake or a salad. Skip the rest.

El Federal – Buenos Aires – Retiro

El Federal – Buenos Aires – Retiro

El Federal is comfort food, Argentine-style. Indigenous ingredients prepared in creative ways. Unfortunately, ambiance and service don’t live up to the food. Reasonable prices for such good food make El Federal worth a visit. We just wish they’d paint the place.

Import Coffee Company – Retiro – Buenos Aires

Import Coffee Company – Retiro – Buenos Aires

More appropriate to call this place Italian Coffee Company. No drip here. Only an espresso machine spewing out nothing but Italian roasted Illy. Better than Cabrales I suppose. Cool trendy, decor. Not sure why so many old ladies are in the place. They must like the Illy coffee and the alfajores.

Olaya – Palermo Hollywood – Buenos Aires

Olaya – Palermo Hollywood – Buenos Aires

Gourmet Peruvian-Asian Fusion in a casual, contemporary setting. Outstanding execution. Unique variations on Peruvian classics. Excellent Service. Olaya is not cheap. One of the more expensive restaurants in this part of the city. But they have a mid-day three course menu that is heavily discounted. Don’t let the fact that there are no lines to get in deceive you.

The most authentic of all the Mexican food restaurants we’ve visited. Spicy and delicious food. Reasonably priced. Margarita was small, but very good. But no Mexican brews. But ambiance and service were somewhat lacking. This place is about the food.
