Food Delivery??

Featured

For those of you in Buenos Aires, we thought you might like to share some food delivery experiences we have had.  Share yours on the BAIN Downtown Facebook page (https://m.facebook.com/pages/Buenos-Aires-International-Newcomers-BAIN-Downtown/105505852875711).

Here are two of mine (neither BAIN DT nor I have any financial relationship with these sources):

Cheeky Bag — food comes in plastic bags to boil for 10 minutes or so.  Contact English speaker owner Mike Scrimshaw at WhatsApp +54 9 11 6918 0818.  Each main plus side is AR$600.  Beef Bourguignon, Coq au Vin, Chicken Tinga, Coconut Curry, Thai Red Curry, Jerk Pork & Gravy.  We liked the Beef and Coq au Vin!!

Milena Pasta — order at PedidosYa.  Great pasta, great selection, great sauces (we are partial to the mushroom sauce).

I know you are foodies, so please enjoy and share.

Share your favorites with us on the BAIN DT FaceBook page.

Best.

PALACIO BAROLO
Designed by Italian architect Mario Palanti for the businessman Luigi Barolo with many allegorical architectural references to classical poet Dante Alighieri´s Divine Comedy, Palacio Barolo is divided into three sections, heaven, hell and purgatory. Departing from hell, we’ll take the stairway to heaven, reaching the dome, which was inspired  by the indian temples Hawa Mahal in Jaipur and Rajarani in Bhubaneswar.

Inaugurated in 1923, the building was the tallest in South America until the construction of the Kavanagh building in 1935. It was also the first reinforced concrete building measuring more than 100 m and is topped by a searchlight which originally was able to communicate with a twin building, the Palacio Salvo, over the other side of the Río de la Plata in Montevideo, Uruguay.The Buenos Aires City Government undertook a restoration of the building in 2010, which included making the searchlight operational again, for the celebration of Argentina’s bicentenary.

Note there is some walking at the end of the tour up to the lighthouse via a spiral staircase.

SALON 1923

Situated on the 16th floor of Palacio Barolo, decorated to recreate a 1920s ambiance, the Salon has two terraces and a lovely lounge.
