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 pop-ups in Buenos Aires.
With the cold taking over, it’s harder to get out of bed every morning. The only thing that keeps me going after work is food, as usual. Don’t worry people I have the ultimate list for your foodie adventures! Put on a scarf and head out to the streets, for these are great opportunities to get your face stuffed with the finest meals!
Craft Beer Tour
It’s been a busy week, time to grab a couple of pints! If you’re into craft beer (we are all hipsters here, no judgement) be prepared: Eating Buenos Aires Tours is hosting a beer tour this Thursday! This tour will take you to four different craft beer and street food venues around Plaza Serrano in Palermo. The price of the tour is $1250 per person and you can get your tickets in Tour de Cerveza Artesanal.

Buenos Aires Market
The Buenos Aires Market is back! This weekend, down in Parque Chacabuco, the pop-up gourmet fair is ready to fill your stomach (and your soul!). Head down there to support local producers and cooks! The ticket is free so it’s a perfect afternoon plan.

Japanese Food Fair
Would you consider yourself a Japanese food lover? I know I would. This weekend, Espacio Hanami is hosting their traditional Japanese Food Fair, where you’ll find the finest gourmet Japanese deli: Onigiri, Ramen, Matcha pastries and more! There will also be origami classes, talks and workshops! Entrance is free.

East Germany’s Food
This Saturday, Extrawurst is bringing to the table a little culture we may not know that much: Germany’s food before the Wall fell. As a celebration of this and a reminder of what happened before, the menu consists of Eastern German dishes. Don’t forget they also serve the most delicious beer, they know their craft. I strongly suggest you try it out!
12:00 – 0:00 hrs. | Extrawurst | Solis 1699 | Constitución
Who doesn’t like Arepas?
I dare you to name someone who doesn’t like a good arepa. Head down to Al Grano Espresso Bar this Saturday to get your fill or accompany that one friend (me) who loves them. They’ll be offering a huge variety of arepas and traditional Venezuelan drinks and pastries. You won’t want to miss it.
12–21:00 hrs.| Al Grano Espresso Bar | Virrey Avilés 3895 | Villa Ortuzar
Have you ever been to a Medieval Fair? Based on the traditional fairs that began in Sóller in Mallorca, this will be quite the event. Complete with themed food and drinks, archery, music, dances, we’re telling you not to miss out on this epic opportunity to travel back in time!
12:00 – 19:00 hrs. | Casa Balear | Colombres 841 | San Cristóbal
For all you vegans and non-vegans, a colorful and huge variety of vegan products is ahead! The Vegan Market opens their doors once again. I strongly recommend you give it a try, regardless of your diet. They always bring a new option to the table and into our hearts!

Is it Monday yet? I need my weekly taco fix! If you do as well, head down to Banquito Rojo, where Masa awaits with their weekly pop-up. If you’re reading this on Thursday 09/05 don’t miss out on their pop-up at Faraday Bar today! (Bulnes 2022 – starting 19 hs). If you couldn’t make it on Thursday or Monday, don’t worry! You can also find them at Dellepiane Bar on Tuesdays. The menu changes every pop-up, so don’t miss out on their spectacular Mexican dishes!
19:00 – 23:30 hrs. | Banquito Rojo | Bolivar 914 | San Telmo
Wine Meets Chocolate
Are you longing to have some wine? What about chocolate? This tasting combines the two things we love the most: eating and drinking. Is it just me or is this the perfect season to roll ourselves up in a blanket and have some wine and chocolate? If you agree, head down to Wining, where they’ll taste four different wines and chocolates. Get your ticket through Fusión Vino y Chocolate ($350 per person).
19:30 – 22:30 hrs. | Wining | Gurruchaga 1060 | Villa Crespo
Sushi to Surprise Workshop
Do you like sushi, but feel it’s overpriced and that you could make something much better? How about a Sushi Basics workshop? 4ta Pared is not only cooking, but teaching you the ways of Sushi and Nikkei Japanese-Peruvian food. You don’t need to be any expert and/or have any previous experience cooking. During the workshop, they will teach you everything you need to know from the selection of products to preparing your sushi. The cost of the workshop is $1500 per person and you can save your place by contacting them via Whatsapp 11-3666-8510. Go quick because there’s a limited capacity of 12 spots.
