Last week Buenos Aires Delivery & Guía Oleo teamed up to host the second installment of its gastro-centric event, Taste! BsAs – a night that showcased 25 local restaurants offering free food to all. Held at the auditorium above the BA Design center in Recoleta, the event was literally bursting at the seams with guests but was overall a great night.
I was lucky enough to be invited to a pre-event sneak peek & tasting with other bloggers, journalists and photographers – which turned out to be a serious blessing. Once the doors opened to the general public, things got a little crazy and having time to enjoy each stand wasn’t in the cards. It was so nice to try places I had never tried and even revisit some old favorites. I hope that next year they’ll have a space that is adequate for the thousands (literally! what a great turn-out) of attendees, which will make it a better experience for everyone. Other than that, Taste! BsAs was a super fun event and I’m already excited to see what’s in store for 2013 (what can I say, I like to plan ahead).
The Ya Ya Beaners were there with their La Boca Roja sauce, which never disappoints. Bonus for the mini tequila shots. (Also, sorry I broke a bottle of sauce because I am a spaz).
Taj Mahal never lets me down. Fluffy samosas, fresh nan, amazing sauces. Loved seeing them there.
NOLAChef Liza Puglia was serving up her famous red beans & rice. Could eat it for days.
La Fábrica del Taco had perhaps the most colorful and festive stand of the whole group.
I loved the Green Monster‘s table! Amazing veggie burgers with creative sauces. Me likey.
A bit blurry but … Atlanta Wing Factory cranked out quality wings (spicy and sweet).
My favorite? Nazca, serving up traditional Peruvian flavors. I need more ASAP!
Of all the dessert-y stands… Top It was the star. Love me some pomelo froyo.
Thanks to BA Delivery & Guía Oleo for a great event! I wanted to try the deep dish pizza as well as some other spots so let’s hope more restaurants will want to participate next year. Now I’m hungry …
