Single Gal Looking for Great Food in Buenos Aires
I'm going to be in BA in about a week and I'm really looking forward to the food. Once concern, however, is that I'll be traveling alone. Anyone know of great places to eat (restaurants, cafes...) that a person wouldn't feel awkward dining at alone? Also, I'm a morning person so the idea of dining at 10 pm is a bit daunting. Will I stand out like a sore thumb if I try to eat at 6:30 or 7? I'd like to avoid overly touristy places. I don't have a ton of money but could splurge on a meal or two.
Thanks for your recommendations...
I'm a single girl in BA and have had no trouble eating out alone quite often. You'll have to at least wait until 8 or 8:30 for the kitchen to open, you'll be eating alone then (in terms of an empty restaurant) but won't have to wait until 10.
There are a bunch of recommendations in the discussion boards below you should check out. Also if you go to Las Canitas (neighborhood) there are a few restaurants along Baez that keep their kitchens open longer. It's a bit touristy there, but it's the tradeoff.
Hi Hany-- you may be back already, but for future reference I would recommend Dada, San Martin 947.
Very buzzy, even on the early side (it has continuous hours from noon) and a good bar if you want to dine there rather than at a table. You won't be the only tourist (well, maybe at 7 you might see only tourists...) but it is comfortable, friendly, cool but not too cool, reasonably priced. Everything we ate there (three visits) was wonderful, with reasonable portion sizes and good wine choice.
