TOP FAVOURITE THINGS TO DO/GO IN BUENOS AIRES
CHECK OUT THE TRENDY NEIGHBORHOOD OF PALERMO VIEJO / SOHO
Like its counterpart in New York, Soho Palermo is the center of cool in the city. Huddled together on the neighborhood’s wide streets you will find boutique clothes stores, coffee shops, digital co-working venues, and some of the best nightlife Buenos Aires has to offer. It seems that even if you can’t afford to live in this little hipster bubble, you’ll still spend plenty of time enjoying it.
LA COCINA EMPANADARIA
After months in South America, it’s become pretty clear that empanadas are big business, and nowhere more so than in Buenos Aires. Whilst we’ve both developed firm favorites throughout the continent, we both agree that those on offer at La Cocina are spectacular! After reading about it on so many lists about where to find the best empanadas in the city, you’ve no idea how thrilled we were to find out it was just down the street from our apartment.
In a country where 37% of the population are of Italian heritage it shouldn’t come as a great surprise that you can find some AMAZING pizza in BA. However, ask any local where you can find ‘the best’ pizza in town and Pizzeria Güerrin will almost certainly come up. Founded in 1932 by Italian poet Franco Malvezzi, they have since made 25 million pizzas!
With its red and white tiles, fading pictures of celebrity diners lining the walls and a loyal after-work crowd sharing slices of pizza and half pints of beer, the place oozes character.
SAN TELMO MARKET
Held every Sunday, the San Telmo Market breathes life into all but the most quiet of the neighborhood’s streets. Every kerbside becomes a stall selling everything from antiques and vintage nik-naks to bespoke jewellery and clothing.
A QUICK TRIP TO BOCA
Despite being a rather large neighborhood, due to safety concerns, tourists tend to stick to the handful of colorful streets known as the ‘caminitos’, whilst the die hard football fans will flock to see the nearby famous Boca Juniors in the local stadium a few minutes walk away.
