Kosher in Argentina

Silverbrow Nov 21, 2006 03:11 PM

Anyone got any decent recs for Argentina, in particular BA? So far I've found it hard to find any specific recommendations. I've found lists of restaurants, but I'm after places that people have been too and found good.

      If you are going to Argentine, it is all about the meat! RIght now I don't remember names of restaurants... we tried a different one every night. The meat is amazing and plentiful. My hubby doesn't eat red meat, so i'm afraid it wasn't all that fun for him.

      My family really liked Sum-Sum. It is a dairy place (chalav Israel) and the pizza there is very good. They also serve excellent fish dishes. Prices are a little higher than at other dairy restaurants but it is worth it.

      For meat, we liked Mama Jacinta. Every meal we had there was excellent. The steaks are very tender and flavorful. Prices are comparable to other meat places. We did not care for the food at Al Galope or Sucath David.

      The pizzerias other than Sum-Sum, serve rather mediocre pizza but they are ok if you want a quick meal. They also serve empanadas which are better than the pizza.

      We also ate at a place in the neighborhood of Belgrano. I do not recall the name, but it had a meat and dairy place right next to each other. It is a trendy place and full of people. We were there on a Sunday and it was packed. We ate at the meat place and did not like it too much. Maybe we went on an off day, because everybody I know raves about the place.

      I hope this helps you.

        Thanks. Had a look but there's very little in the way of decent (balanced) criticism of the food. A lot of the posts are more focused on supervision issues.

        Also, lots of the posts seem to be gobbledygook - the English is pants, I assume because English is not their first language.
