Everybody knows that the best way to achieve the ideal summer bod is by eating and drinking as much as possible without abandon. Seriously, it’s science, look it up. Now that temperatures are rising and the jacarandas are slowly starting to bloom in Buenos Aires, we’re ready for the Semana de la Gastronomía Porteña (porteño food week, if you’re nasty and/or not bilingual), taking place at 50 restaurants across the city from November 4 – 10.
From pasta to milanesa to steak to empanadas to sushi, diners will have the chance to enjoy special dishes offered at unbeatable prices, as well as a whole range of other goodies and treats. In fact, drinks are on the house (wait, really? #Yen2) and if two people order the full promotional menu, you’ll get two (!!) bottles of wine to enjoy – one to savor with your meal and another to take home and drink while you’re crying in the bathtub. This is actually amazing? Seriously guys, you don’t want to miss it.

About the event, Carlos Yanelli, Secretary of the AHRCC Chamber of Restaurants, says: “Porteño Food Week is a unique celebration that reflects the culinary style that characterizes us, that honors the masters behind the creations and places that offer their clients personalized service day in and day out.” Ana Lía Toccalino, another spokesperson for the organization, added: “The food in Buenos Aires attracts tourists and visitors from around the world, and it’s our goal that during this week people from the city, the country, and around the globe try the typical dishes from our kitchens as well as new flavors. That’s why we want it to last an entire week, so they can check out new areas, try different foods, and enjoy.”
Porteño Food Week is also supported by BA Capital Gastronómica, the initiative run by the City Government of Buenos Aires to position the city as a foodie capital of Latin America through a variety of activities, events, and core values. The week saw its official kickoff last Saturday, with a “choriceada gigante” (what did you just call me?) at the former Buenos Aires Design building complex that raised funds for the Flexer Foundation, which helps kids with cancer.
There are tons of restaurants around Buenos Aires that are taking part in Porteño Food Week, so be sure to visit the website for all of the juicy details about the menus, prices, locations, and more.
