Making a Trail

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

Behind Hong Kong, I think Buenos Aires was my second favorite big city that we have visited. In large part, this is thanks to the amazing food, nice people, and general metropalitan feel of this place. Buenos Aires is known for its beef and the best place to get a good steak is at one of the parillas. We went to two of the more popular ones in town and were not disappointed.

First, we went to La Cabrera. This place is so popular they have 3 iterations of the same restaurant in a 2 block stretch. The steak was above average and they bring you a ton of different little sides/snacks to enjoy.

La Cabrera was nice, but Don Julio was the more memorable place for us. I somehow managed to talk Becky into lunch steaks (borderline breakfast steaks) the day after our La Cabrera dinner. The nice people at Don Julio let us in for lunch around noon and we had the best meal we’ve had all trip. If you get wine, which we did, they let you write something on the bottle and they put it up on the wall. Our bottle is in the picture below–I’m not saying which one.

As we were leaving, our waiter told us he hopes we get pregnant soon, which was kind of funny, strange, and sweet all at once. Thanks, I guess? Its hard not to be happy, regardless of what you hear, with a belly full of red wine and prime cow.

Yay steaks!
