I’m a list maker. I jot down grocery lists on the backs of envelopes, I detail books I want to read on post-its, and I fill up my calendars with random To-Do’s and other essentials. So it wasn’t really a surprise that I found myself on New Year’s Day jotting down all of the BA restaurants (new or just new to me) that I insist on finally trying this year.
We’re all creatures of habit; I could eat at Bengal every night and be happy. It’s easy to fall into a rut, but I vow to stop being lazy and to check out the places that have generated some serious buzz (or that just look really delicious). I need to thank The Lost Asian and Pick Up the Fork for making me drool with their amazing photos and reviews. If only I had the deep pockets to feed my addiction, then we’d really be in business.
Here is my (incomplete) list:
La Panza Porteña’s 2012 Food Binge
HG Hernán Gipponi at the Fierro Hotel
Café San Juan (how have I never been here? Hype or not, I’m going)
M Buenos Aires
El Almacén de los Milagros (going tonight, zing!)
Marfa (Might have to set up an “apartment” in a janitor’s closet so they’ll deliver to me)
Siamo Nel Forno
Hong Kong Style
Moreneta de Montserrat
Barrio Coreano in general
Where are you hoping to chow down in the new year?
