Moveable Feasts is a culinary agenda in which we give you the low-down on this week’s food fairs, workshops, and pop-ups in Buenos Aires. With our current times we’ve given you options that include a whole lot of outdoor dining, but as always make your best judgment on what is “COVID safe.” This week the wizard behind Comer Es La Cuestion, Kevin Daniel, has curated the list of where to go. Follow his account for mouth-watering photos and all the foodie recs that your heart could desire!
What’s up, doc? My name is Kevin and just two weeks before the apocalypse (aka the first round of COVID quarantine) I published my first gastro agenda for La La Lista. I really hope this time around things will end a little differently.
There are so many great events happening this week that you won’t want to miss. I don’t want to jinx it thought. Make up your mind and choose wisely. Anyway, whatever you do, don’t forget this mantra: food is fuel and the best is yet to come.
Donnet Takes Over Alfonso
The queen of mushrooms Manuela Donnet and owner of Donnet will take a little of her magic to the cozy and beautiful restaurant, Alfonso. What to expect on the menu: empanadas, platitos, and a lot of mushrooms. Everything is vegan. Head over for a few drinks, sip some vermú, and enjoy the good vibes in one of the coolest neighborhood spots.

Salvaje, the famous bakery in Palermo and home of all things sourdough, changes to night mode tonight with the mixologist, Pablo Pignatta, taking over plae. He’ll be supplying the drinks and the Dj Rockmina will be taking care of the music. Bread, vinyl, cool music, cocktails, and a whole lot of happiness, what else could you want?

Coffee and Sandos
The people behind Gosando organized another pop-up you don’t want to miss, complete with their stellar sandos at the new window in Villa Ortuzar. Expect original Asian sandwiches, aka shokupan, and that great specialty coffee from Kiosk Co. With this combination we assure you that you’ll be properly prepared for the weekend ahead.

Visceral Invades Nave Nodriza
Visceral leaves Zona Norte for a while and dares to cross Gral Paz to visit Nave Nodriza, one of our favorite small grocery stores in Villa Crespo. We’re talking sandwiches for everyone, fermented goods, drinks, and good music to make this a night to remember. Think sidewalk stooping, neighborhood good fun.

Pop Up at Blanca
Blanca, one of the most beautiful coffee spots in Las Cañitas will host their first pop-up this Saturday. They’ve planned a special menu with chef Guilad Hornstein: colorful platitos, scrumptious matcha drinks, and all the fancy coffee will be the stars of the show this Saturday afternoon.

Middle Eastern Vegan Flavors
Traveling to the Middle East is going to be even easier than usual. A Palermo favorite, Benaim invited the young cooks Georgina Fresco and Maiu Augman for another round of vegan dishes. With these two behind the kitchen we’re already sold, but add to the mix some specialty coffee from Cigalo and we just can’t say no.
