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.
May is almost gone and with the impending doom of winter it’s almost impossible to resist temptation. Anyone else having the munchies every day and night now? How’s everyone dealing with the cold weather? Food, duh. This week we have everything from 25 de Mayo locro to Greek and Mexican food. Get munching before hibernation strikes!
While we all want to travel around the world, we’re living in the time of Macrisis and it’s not so feasible. Luckily for you, Tiempo de Sabores can take you on a trip to Greece with their delightful four course dinner. Their menu costs $600 per person and it includes a glass of wine and a non-alcoholic beverage. You don’t even have to pack.

Beef Casserole and Wine

Tea and Chocolate: a sensory experience
I bet you have already tried wine and chocolate, but what about tea and chocolate? Hey, I’m not judging. I mostly picture myself as an old person that enjoys a good cup o’ tea, chocolate, gardening and dogs (lesbian stereotype much?) Ahem, moving on: Teabet and Querido Watson are hosting a tea and chocolate tasting down in Colegiales. There will be a talk from tea sommelier, Hernán Repetto, and the chocolatier Mora Salguero about this exquisite combination. There will also be a raffle for a teapot and chocolate! The ticket costs $300 ($400 w/ card). Get them here: Teabet Tickets.

25 de Mayo Locro
If you haven’t heard of locro, what have you been doing? Here in Argentina, it’s one of the main typical dishes from the colonial times (1810) that we eat every 25th of May. This Saturday you’ll find a huge variety (vegan, gluten free, vegetarian) all around town. Locro is a stew made out of squash, beans, meat, bacon….I will stop listing things because my mouth is watering way too much. I encourage you to take advantage of this date to eat as many different locros as you possibly can (CAUTION: if you are going to stuff your face with several varieties of this bean heavy dish have a toilet nearby, don’t be a newbie). The guys at Capataz are hosting a three course patriotic meal for this holiday, the ticket is $500 per person + wine/non-alcoholic beverage. Save a table for you and your friends by emailing [email protected]
