Buenos Aires - Authentic Asado

Hi All,

I am planning a trip to Buenos Aires in May 2015 with about 10 friends. Does anyone know any real good way for my friends and I to experience a real Porteno Asado?

Not knowing anyone in BA, I was thinking of renting a house and creating our own asado party. Know any good asado cooks or caterers who I can possibly use?

I want something beyond a restaurant or tour experience to an estancia, I want the real thing.

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

  1. I don't know any cooks, but my uncle is a party planner in BA. If you speak Spanish, I could send you his contact info and he might be able to help you out.

      Sorry for the late reply. Thank you for your offer. I don't speak Spanish very well so it may be difficult to communicate.

    2. has some offerings for Buenos Aires. I haven't tried any.

        Thank you for your resource. I will look them up and let you know of my experience if I use them.

      2. "Not knowing anyone in BA" may prove to be a limitation.
        I'd use Mirasol in Recolta as a benchmark.
        Who knows? Perhaps they could hook you up.
