It’s never easy, the first full week after carnaval. But to get you through the inevitable hanger of longer work hours, we have a full agenda of great food events worth checking out.
MASA Invades Banquito Rojo
Want to jumpstart your week with a whole lotta flavor? Get yourself down to San Telmo to eat some tacos at MASA’s weekly pop-up at Banquito Rojo, where our resident food writer and Mexican-inspired chef Kevin Vaughn will be serving up stuffed chili tacos, pork carnitas, chileatole with nachos, and a whole lot more.

Masa Invades Sede
Between the dim lighting, smokey whiskey cocktails, and rap caviar-esque playlist, the last time we went to Sede we really got down with our bad selves. You know what else is bad, in that good way? Fried potato and tongue tacos. No, no wait, make that over baked bacon and mole tacos. And don’t forget about the walnut ice cream churros. That’s right, Masa’s invading Sede this week. Don’t miss it.

Guided by professional bartender Niquito Constan, and assisted by Sommelier Maria Florencia Yrazusta, Vico opens its door for a special tasting focusing on Sake. Following the tasting, which costs $650 ARS, there will be a selection of cheeses and cured meats.

Couldn’t make it out to San Telmo on Monday? Well, if you’re anywhere near Chacarita, you’ll get a second chance on Wednesday Masa witakes over the kitchen at Elote this Wednesday, providing your fix for all those Mexican food cravings. Enchiladas, tacos, you name it and Kevin’s created a thoughtful and unlikely combination of ingredients to make it pop.
19:00 hr | Elote | Jorge Newbery 3791 | Chacarita
Celebrate the week being basically over with a big ole pastrami sandwich from your pal, Kevin. Prefer a taco? Snag a pork carnita. Pork not your style? Good thing there’s a corned beef with chile verde option. Craving kimchi? Yeah, he has you covered there too. You’re welcome.

Feel like exploring all the great outdoor mall of Palermo has to offer? Yeah, we’re not entirely sure we should be recommending it either. But it’s happening, and if you’re in the neighborhood, you might as well check it out. There will be wine stands, food trucks and more – go and report back, yeah?
18-22 hrs | Distrito de Arcos| Paraguay 4979
