Moveable Feasts is a weekly agenda in which our food writer Tamx Rivas gives us the low-down on this week’s food fairs, workshops, and things to eat in Buenos Aires.
It’s fall and we are confused as ever about what to eat and wear. Personally, I’m more than eager for winter to start, to be finished with the constant is it hot or cold outside? Should I bring a jacket or wear shorts? Are we allowed to start eating soup? No matter the temperature, these choices of the week are bound to satisfy whatever it is you’re craving.
Are you tired of eating the same kind of food every time you go out? German food seems like a good new option for a foodie adventure. Extrawurst is a cozy German restaurant down in Constitución (they have another location now in Microcentro!). They have been in Buenos Aires for six years and they have won the “Gewinner der goldenen Currywurst” prize three years on a row! They wanna prove to us that german food isn’t just chucrut and potatoes. They serve a variety of authentic German recipes, from Brezels (Pretzels) to homemade sausages! Get this! They’re offering a 10% discount! You can make reservations by calling +541143132225 , whatsapping +54 911 67556575 or e-mailing [email protected]
