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.
I’ve been talking to a lot of people and we’ve all agreed that we’re pretty tired and stressed these days, but also hungry AF, mainly because cooking is a paja (even for a chef like me). The mood around these cold city’s streets isn’t the most cheerful. But worry not friends! Food, I believe, is a little piece of love and dedication that can turn your frown upside down. On your food horoscope for the week: brunch, sake, vegan dishes, Japanese food and so much more!
The Perfect Dinner
Thursdays are hard. You deserve a little break from routine. The guys at 4ta Pared have your Thursday night plan: a five course dinner, where you’ll be able to chat with the wine sommelier and chef themselves, while you watch them do their magic. There’s limited capacity and the event costs $1500 per person. Save your seat by contacting 11-3666-8510.
19:00 – 21:00 hrs. | 4ta Pared | Habana 3499 | Villa Devoto
Have you ever had Sukiyaki? It’s a Japanese dish that consists of meat (usually thinly sliced beef) which is slowly cooked or simmered at the table, alongside vegetables and other ingredients, in a shallow iron pot with a mixture of soy sauce, sugar, and mirin. The ingredients are usually dipped in a small bowl of raw, beaten eggs after being cooked in the pot, and then eaten. This weekend, in spirit of the Japanese food week in BA (Gastro-Japo Food Week), Hanami is hosting a Sukiyaki party. There’ll be two chances to sign up to: 19:00-21:30 and 22:00-00:30 hrs. I suggest you save your place by contacting 11-5152-8476.
19:00 – 00:30 hrs. | Hanami | Medrano 1230 | Palermo
You won’t accept just dinner at a nice place anymore. You wanna try something new, don’t you? I see you, and I got just the thing: the blindfolded dinner is THE event to go to at Clara Aurora. Take a five course dinner and add a blindfold: it becomes a whole new sensory experience; textures, smells, silences, and more. There’ll also be a live music show during dinner. To save your place, contact 11-5038-0603.
21:00 – 23:00 hrs. | Clara Aurora | Conde 4400 | Saavedra
Beginner’s Guide to Beer
We’ve all had a shitty beer and thought to ourselves: “even I could make better beer.” Well, now’s your chance! Beerlabs is teaching you how to make it from scratch, in their 8 hour-long workshop all about cold brews. You’ll learn everything from the grain you need to make the beer, to fermentation, cooking and more! During the workshop there’ll be two coffee breaks and a beer tasting alongside some finger food. The event is $2500 per person. You can get your tickets at Elaboración de Cerveza.
9:00 – 17:00 | Beerlabs | Humboldt 1618 | Palermo
Natural Food Workshop
I bet you’ve caught a cold or two throughout autumn. I know I did more than once. Ever think about how your health could be restored by a simple twist in your diet? Diana knows what you need this season to feel good and plenty. She’s teaching you how to make a simple menu with natural food that you’ll get to taste afterwards. There’s limited capacity, so for more info contact [email protected]
11:00 – 14:30 hrs. | Armonia Natural | Cabildo 2000 | Belgrano
From June 12th to June 19th, the Gastro-Japo Food Week will take place in Buenos Aires. Every Japanese restaurant in the city has prepared dishes in celebration of this food fest, and they have special menus for the occasion. To get a complete list of all the restaurants that are participating in the festival go to Club Gastro Japo. I’m taking this chance to call attention to one of my favorite authentic-Japanese restaurants: Mirutaki. They know what to do and they do it so well. If you wanna take my recommendation, order the Takoyaki (<– food porn link), it’s so creepy and delicious at the same time.
20:00 – 0:00 hrs. | Mirutaki | Ángel Carranza 2339 | Palermo
Italian Pasta Workshop
As you must already know, Argentinians love fideos (pasta). We also brag a lot about our Italian descent, but then we don’t even know how to make tomato sauce. Stop bragging and start learning! La Pasta Noble is teaching you all about fresh homemade pasta and its uses. The tools you need to make it, how to prepare the perfect dough, how to store it–all of this will be revealed during the workshop. For more info contact [email protected]
16:00 – 19:30 hrs. | La Pasta Noble | Billinghurst 1174 | Palermo
If you did a double-take on the image, yes it is what you think it is. I see you enjoy the devil’s lettuce, Mary Jane, pocket rocket, giggly broccoli—ok, I’m getting to it. Thing is, sometimes I don’t wanna take in all that smoke (or do I) and prefer to just bake something to get baked with. This time, Talita Chef will teach you the basics of cooking with Cannabis. Dosage, mixtures, techniques and much more will be explained in this awesome workshop. There’ll also be a vape room, a coffee break with edibles and a gift bag from the sponsors (probably some paraphernalia). Need I say more? Tickets are $2000 per person and you can get them on Cocina Cannabica Tickets.
15:00 – 18:00 | Tim Sativa | Av. Álvarez Thomas 1431 | Villa Ortúzar
Sunday’s here, you just woke up and don’t know what to bajonear. Unluckily for you, your veganism has limited options, or so you thought!

13:30 – 17:30 hrs. | Locura Vegana | Humahuaca 3508 | Abasto
If Abasto is too far away and you’d rather head to Boedo instead, Furia Vegana awaits you in Sigue La Polilla. They have all the vegan food you can imagine. They’ll be waiting for you to appear with an insatiable appetite, so go on and eat everything that comes your way.
14:00 – 19:30 hrs. | Sigue La Polilla | Castro Barros 874 | Boedo

Brunch by Ulúa
You’re looking for a strong brunch plan, aren’t you? The authentic Mexican food from ULÚA is the perfect cure for that hangover, and the perfect excuse to take any dad (biological or sugar, I don’t judge) you want to spoil out for brunch. Or you could just take yourself, daddy-o (sorry not sorry), you deserve it.

MASA’S Anti-Monday Blessing
I know, the long weekend was great and all, but you need to end it like a boss. Nothing better than heading to San Telmo, where MASA is awaiting your weary stomach, in need of a new taste, a new feeling. Believe it or not, their food saved my soul. I’m not lying babe, you need to try their food at least once before you die. This isn’t your typical taco/burrito al paso. This is what the gods must’ve eaten. If you wanna see why I’m NOT exaggerating, you should totally check them out. If you’re seeing this before the weekend, they’re also popping-up at Elote this Friday 14th.
19:00 – 23:30 hrs. | Banquito Rojo | Bolivar 914 | San Telmo
Sake Tasting and Pairing

As a part of the food festival taking place this week in the city, Buri has prepared a Ramen class for all of us, anime-watching gordxs that wanted to learn how to replicate that exquisite Japanese dish without rushing to the chino in our flip-flops.

How to Sushi
I know, what a surprise, Japanese food! Sorry, it’s this food’s week, deal with it. Besides, I know you wanna get sushi-ing soon. Too weird of a phrase, right? Anyhow, 4ta Pared’s got a Sushi basics class prepared for us. They’ll get you up to speed with the techniques, preparation, product selection and flavor combination. The cost is $1500 per person, everything’s included and you don’t need any previous experience! Save your place by contacting 11-3666-8510.
