What’s the area/ spot in town you’ll never be caught dead in?

Buenos Aires in general is a place where you will never get bored.

What’s the thing you LOVE to do in your city that you never get to do?

To ride in motorcycle freely and get lost on a week day.

What’s the most decadent / extreme dish you ever ate in Buenos Aires and where did you get it?

The infamous "paty de cancha" (burger served in a sport event) while in a music event. This awful piece of meat is over heated for days on a low fire, and served roughly in a dry piece of buns. Not recommended to add it some "mayo", because thats basically made of eggs... and it, im sure, will have so much hours of sun.

"La Florería", is a cute flower store, in witch behind a refrigerator is located a door to an underground bar.

Paraje Arévalo, it may cost around 1500 ARS each. But in their defense you will get molecular food, astonishingly presented and the flavour will redefine the concept you have about food.

What restaurant in Buenos Aires looks crap, but the food’s amazing?

El cuartito is an old pizza place, wich looks forgoten in time, but their pizzas are really outstanding.

Where can you get the best cocktail in Buenos Aires? Which one do you like?

In recoleta you will find a few delightful bars to try the best cocktails. Im a Gin man, but I will always be able to enjoy a Cynar Julep, or our well known "Fernet" (its something like jagermeister mixed with coke).

Where would you take your partner in Buenos Aires if you wanted to really pamper them?

Villa devoto has nice places to take a walk and in the meantime you may have a drink or have a fancy eat near by the park.

Which snacks can you only get in your country, and which ones do you recommend?

We have a lots of snacks to eat while you walk the streets of Buenos Aires. I will obviously will recommend to a tourist to try "dulce de leche".

What’s the one place you think is overrated in Buenos Aires?

Buenos Aires Casino, its seems to shout as a unique spot, but basically is a regular casino mounted over a boat (wich by the way, it never depart).

I think internationally Buenos Aires is generally underrated. Its a beautiful city, with tons of things to do and charming people.

Probably will make a huge BBQ (asado) with all my friends and acquaintances.

What’s your favorite vacation city in the world and why?

I think it cannot be a "favorite one". Each and every city has its own magic, and this magic will make a perfect fit according to the time in your life you are in.
