    That's Adri's supposition, but it does beg the question of why she will probably never be found guilty of anything.

    I'm not so sure that was down to Macri....I suspect those who have influence in the judicial system are rotten to the core . In other words it would have been a complete waste of time.

    Doesn't anyone know how to cook these days? I've mainly cooked during lockdown, something that I've never done. Yes, I have ordered, but like I said, I don't order online. Especially after my experiences with a big company beginning with A

    Although my wife can cook I'd say I do most of the cooking. I can't be that bad at it as she's perfectly happy to let me get on with it. Apart from a couple of things most carry out food available here isn't great.....to be honest it's fucking boring. To be fair most of it isn't to my taste.

    I’m wondering to which countries’ beef you each are unfavorably comparing Argentina’s?

    I do like making and eating asado however my favourite meat to BBQ is a whole pork rib or chicken as it always pleases whereas beef has let me down too many times. Best of all the pork rib leftovers still taste every bit as good eaten cold the next day. I've sweated over far too many BBQ's here grilling beef only to be left disappointed. Not worth the hassle.


    British beef is every bit as good if not better overall than what you get here in my opinion.

    The worst. But in Argentina, world leader in beef, it is strangely popular.

    In my 20+ years of eating Argentinian beef I've rarely experienced a memorable beef meal here ...it's vastly overrated in my opinion. Many's the time I'd rather have had a Big Mac!! =O

    I have Tom Vernon's book and have read is avidly several times. It's a great read, but I've yet to get my hands on the TV series.

    I think I downloaded it from a Torrent site and put on discs years ago. If I did and find it (God only knows where it is) I'll let you know.

    I love pizza, empanadas, and all manner of things grilled on a parrilla. Sushi would be no loss to me; I’ll take the basic Argentine Food Groups any day. Even DDL.

    I agree however I have to say unless you have a favourite outet who has a track record of producing a quality product the standards are too hit and miss for my liking. A big mac OTOH tastes the same in Beijing or Buenos Aires. What is DDL? :scratchead:

    Out here in the sticks I can't say I've been impressed with the carry out/delivery food scene. No McDonalds of course due to the council protecting the usual food offerings. There's a sushi outlet which I think has survived the lockdown but the fear of contracting food poisnoning has put this fish and seafood lover off ordering it.

    Have to make do with the usual boring pizza,empanadas,asado shit.

    I sense a good story for the weekend….

    Not really despite the 'build up'. ^^


    Truth be told despite the stories of my great uncle in Argentina told to me by my lovely grandmother...she lived to the ripe old age of 96 you know and had a great influence on my life. I have to 'blame' Tom Vernon aka 'Fat Man on a Bicycle' for ending up here. As a lover of travelling in the UK as well as in foreign lands by bicycle I watched Tom Vernon's TV series 'Fat Man in Argentina' and firmly decided I wanted to go on a cycle tour in Argentina.

    This was back in the very early days of the internet. So having decided Argentina was going to be my next cycle touring destination I had to do some research. Yahoo groups was all the rage back then and I noticed they had a Argentina travel advice group so I posted informing the locals of my intentions and I was looking for advice. My future wife was the only peron who replied to my question and the rest is history.
