Buenos Aires has cooled down quite a bit. After the thunder and rain, the temperature has dropped down more or less 20-30 degrees fareheit…! Because of the rain, we had a day off from Caminito which was nice since we got to rehearse and spend the time on other necessary things. Quite a change from non-stop sweating to leather jackets in a matter of few days…!
Today, we had a nice lunch with some of the American Tangueras in Palermo Hollywood. Palermo Hollywood is kind of the more upscale area with the fancier restaurants. It’s nice to have some gourmet food outings, especially as a foodie that I am. As much as I love Argentinean food, I miss the variety that I used to get in Los Angeles. We decided to check out “Oui Oui” for Brunch located on Nicaragua 6068 and 6099. We were enticed by a photo of Eggs Benedict that we saw for the restaurant and came there. Unfortunately, we found out that it’s only served in one of the 2 shops located there (served only in the 6099), which is closed on Sundays. No Eggs Benedict for Sunday brunch. Bummer…
After a close to 30 min wait, we were able to get seated. It’s very rare to queue for places here. That shows how good it is…! We ended up trying out: “Huevos Completo” which is basically a full egg breakfast with eggs, ham, salad, fried potatoes, toast, and beverage / A buffalo mozzarella salad / Croque Madame / their famous Choco Torta, which usually consists of chocolate cake with dulce de leche. Yum. Also their mint lemonade was very refreshing. A great place to check out to sit out in the street for a nice brunch. It’s also on the same street as “Pani”, a very cutesy bakery cafe on Nicaragua 6044. They have really cute knick-knacks that they sell there as well. We didn’t eat there but I decided to get some slices of sweets “para llevar”, to take home. A chocolate maracuya tart and a lemon & ricotta square. Let’s see how that is later when I get to indulge in it 🙂
I will need to come by this area more often to check the different restaurants out. You could probably choose most any of the restaurants here and you will not go wrong…!
