Post 300: “Chez Mister Revisited” Revisited

After roughly three years of writing about food I have arrived at my 300th post published on this thing called MyAmusedBouche. And while I am not generally the sentimental type when it comes to benchmarks or anniversaries, I did spend some time thinking about a post to make this special. At any given time I…

Spicy Pork and Pineapple Skewers by My Roomies

Last Saturday I was not feeling so trill. After a relatively long night of…playing too much Scrabble and…drinking too much chocolate milk… I woke up to a world that just didn’t look the same as usual. A lot of things just didn’t seem okay. Now, a lot of people in this situation feel sick to…

Wednesday Night Poke Night at Magdalena’s Party

Pretty much since I’ve moved here I’ve been hearing all over town about this Poke guy and the fantastic (recently) weekly pop-ups he does at Magdalena’s Party. As I have been trying nowadays to go to all those places I’ve only eyed from afar, last Wednesday I decided to finally try out his stuff. As…

Almacén de Pizza: Good Take-Out Pizza Exists in BA??

On our last night as CPP’s we decided to hit up Almacen de Pizzas which I’m pretty sure we were both confusing with a non-chain pizzeria also located in Palermo but which eventually did not let us down. Quite the opposite. As we had already sat down and ordered a hefty bottle of Alamos Malbec…

El Nono Amigo: No-no(t) as Good as Expected

This place gets reviewed daily – the little yellow Italian almacén on the corner (Guatemala and Carranza, specifically), with a big chalk-board listing cheeses, fiambres, sandwiches and salads, a round shelf in the middle busy with textile-capped little jars of homemade marmelada and pickled veggies and a back wall lined with a pretty extensive selection…

En el Nobre del Postre: A Blessed Find by a Couple of TCPP’s

My beloved food companion and I had the great fortune of leaving behind our usual identities as Stuffy Recoleta People (SRP) and becoming Temporary Cool Palermo People (TCPP) for a few days this past weekend. We enjoyed it. We purchased non-overpriced, perfectly ripened fruit, a bottle of white out of a huge selection of cheap wines,…

The Time I Finally Entered Rigoletto Cafe

There’s this place on Rodriguez Pena, near Santa Fe, that I have walked by almost every day for 7 months now on my way home after multiple hours of pumping iron and flexing my glutes at (!!!)MEGATLON(!!!). This story is not about La Chuleta (whose locro I still need to try), El Salto de las Ranas…

Pin-Pan Chori Love from Back in the Day

Another elusive little folder hiding in my “B.s. old food” file (which doesn’t sound that appetizing, forgot the “-As”) gave rise to some good, old-fashioned yummy-pan-chori photos I took when I still thought they were the best thing in the world (now I think they’re just ONE of the best…) What I like about this…

Some NOLA Bites from a While Ago

I was looking though some old files on my computer today as part of a desperate attempt to recycle-bin some shiz and free up space on my hard drive, because I’m a cheap bastard and don’t want to get an external one. Unfortunately since 90% of that virtual eh-space is occupied by food photos and…
