  • I used to enjoy reading their articles as they had actual content and analysis (not necessarily aligned with my ideas). I will add it back to my bookmarks!


    During this first stage, the Herald will be a news website. There are plans to incorporate new formats further ahead. Our news coverage will seek to explain the realities of contemporary Argentina with all its complexity and potential. In particular, we will focus on economic and financial news, but there will also be space for plenty of lifestyle content.

  • Hi Gary Kipher ,


    milanesa is the local take of a wiener schnitzel - a staple of the Argentinian cuisine available in a few variants. The most popular one is milanesa napolitana, which is topped with loads of cheese, tomatoes. If you want fried egg(s) on top, it is called "a caballo". It is served north to south, from cafés at railway station to upscale restaurants. It beats me why anyone who order junk food at a high end place, but Argentinians aren't exactly renowned for their fine taste in food.

    It is served plated with a side of french fries or mashed potatoes (or pumpkin) or as a filling in a variety of flat breads.


    My hatred for the milanesa is simple: all that topping cover the meat taste, which makes it pointless to order fried beef. It is also a lazy meal (the beefs are sold pre-breaded in meat shops), unhealthy and ubiquitous. Local cuisine is not very creative. They have 20 dishes and they are offered everywhere.


    If you like different styles of food, stay in Palermo or Recoleta, otherwise you will be bored soon!

  • Got it. I gained weight just looking at it. :eating-sandwich: Not a big junk food eater. For some reason I have no problems with portion control. I do like good chocolate, but that requires red wine. My original research was focused on Bariloche, then Mendoza. I really like good wine. I could happily spend my senior years near a book stall and a pub.

  • Here in Oregon in the next town we have Tokyo Bistro. Good sushi can be amazing, haven't tried bad sushi, wouldn't recommend. It's got to be fresh, it's raw fish after all. The owners name is Ming, she is an artist, watching here make a sushi roll is amazing, especially when you realise how sharp her knives are. She is a gem.

  • serafina oh I agree so much. I’ve been here more than 5 weeks and am craving Indian or a good Chinese.

    Sushi restaurants seem to be in increasing abundance but I’m not as familiar with Japanese cuisine as I could be.

    The one thing that surprises me here given the heritage, is how poor Italian dishes can be. I had some truly awful pasta in the Micro centro and also in Bariloche as well.

    I am not a fan of Chinese, so I can't help in that regard. About Indian food, there is no authentic Indian in Buenos Aires, but perhaps you are looking for a westernized version that you are accustomed to.

    I have just created a post with my reviews of the Indian places of Buenos Aires.

  • MSM in estado unidos has the same disease, corporate capture, advertising for shit you don't need and from people who hate you. I get real journalism from independent sights. Seymour Hersh, a Pulitzer Prize journalist has been dropped by US MSM. I now have to go to Consortiumnews.com if I want to read his analysis.

  • The Herald has really copped out here:

    Quote

    Editorial disclaimer

    Freedom of expression is a core value for the Buenos Aires Herald.

    Although the UK refers to the territory as the “Falklands Islands,” Argentina strongly contests this name. The Buenos Aires Herald uses “Malvinas” to refer to the islands.

  • Nowhere near the stature of the previous ambassador.

    Mark Kent was one in a million - a very good ambassador and an even better person.


    Now, working away as the CEO of the Scotch Whisky Association - a lucky bar steward, as they say in my hometown.


    I noted with interest the footnote on KHs article

    If they truly believe in freedom of expression, should they not call the Falklands by the name that the legal residents of the Falklands call the islands?


    I always thought the Malvinas were in the south of Chile.

  • I am the first argentinean member who recognizes that when we were in close relationship with the UK, things here were better than nowadays. i am speaking about 1880 since 1946. then those relationship were ruining because all tried to win and nobody recognizes that to make a good deal you have to be flexible in some things. perhaps this is a result of lackof imagination and excessive proud,

  • I got an invite years ago to a party at the British Ambassadors residence in Buenos Aires. Back then the Ambassador was Shan Morgan.

    I got an invite to KH's residence next week for International Gin Day


    But Mrs Glasgow John is getting a minor operation the same day , so I had to turn it down.


    I hope she didn't get upset when I asked, would you mind sending me a wee bottle to my house....?.

    That's a shame, hope the all goes well with the wife's op. 👍

    I got my invite from British Airways as they were celebrating 20 years serving EZE.

  • I swear there's more Scottish people than English people in Argentina. Maybe BA should re-route to EZE-GLA :)

    The scottish people were the first immigants in Argentina, arrived in 1824 and established in the south of BA, There they foiunded the st andrews presbyterian church and were clearly different from the first english businessmen, very affluent of course, arrived earlier.

    The new nation admitted free religion, and they used this right. The UK admitted Roman Catholicism in 1830, following the liberal ideas of the Duke of Wellington, the victor at Waterloo over Napoleon,

    They progressed a lot and now they have 2 high colleges and one university, very prestigious, The universidad de San Andres.

    Why didn't I ever get a gin party date? That's one event I wouldn't miss. And since it is NOT host by Argentinian, I can actually get there on time and find PEOPLE there. :D
