Buenos Aires Cafe ~ "Foodie" Friday 9/7/18

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker United Realtors® ~ 512.750.6899

It looks like we are are going to receive rain all week-end. Don't let that dampen your spirits, try something new  for your dining pleasure. Head on down to this fun and welcoming restaurant on East 6th Street and learn to eat the Argentine way, you'll be glad you did!


BUENOS AIRES CAFÉ          https://www.buenosairescafe.com/

Chef/owner Reina Morris moved her family from Argentina in 1997, and carried her love for life and hospitality with her.  Wanting to share her love for her culture through food she enrolled in the Texas Culinary Academy. Her mission at Buenos Aires Café is to serve high quality food, give back to her community while respecting the environment.  Argentina is known for beef, but there is also a large seafood culture because of its long coastline. They are committed to serving their customers only the highest quality food and the freshest ingredients available and support local farmers and markets when possible.


A sample of their menus....On their Empanadas menu there are 5 types to choose from: Suave which is mild ground beef with green onions, green olives, raisins, traditional spices and fresh herbs...Pollo which is shredded roasted chicken, red bell peppers, fresh herbs and green onions...Atun with Genova tuna, red bell peppers, onions, tomatoes, black & green olives and oregano ...Verdura with spinach, ricotta, parmesan and onions and finally Semanal with spicy tomato braised beef, potato and cheese.  They are all served with house made chimichurri (not usually done in Argentina, but satisfies the Austinite and the way we love to dip). On the Small Bites menu there's Aceitunas - house marinated olives & citrus zest...Provoleta-traditional Argentine charred provolone with fresh herbs...and Bread Service - rustic handmade sourdough bread with Uruguayan extra virgin olive oil or homemade compound butter. On the Entreé menu there's Milanesa A La Napolitana-2 breaded and fried certified Angus beef cutlets baked with ham, mozzarella, house made marinara served with rosemary & parmesan fries...on the Grill menu you can choose from Bife De Lomo - a 6oz. tenderloin, Costilla - 2 10oz bone-in short ribs and Chuleton - a 12oz. ribeye all served with their chimichurri.  


On the Dessert menu - try the Quatro Leches - the traditional Latin American tres leches sponge cake with their signature fourth distinct Argentine touch...or from the pastry case try Chocotorta - a flourless chocolate torte layered with chocolate and dulce de leche ganache, strawberry mousse and finished with strawberry balsamic reduction.


Watch this video with Reina Morris and her daughter talking about their love for food and their restaurant...

Hi Dorie... I remember eating really good food when I was in Buenos Aires, so this should be a great place for someone looking for that Argentinian experience without travelling to South America. (It's going to rain some here this weekend, as well.)

Dorie: No chance to go to South America in the short-term so I would definitely have to mosey over and try out this restaurant if in the Austin area.

I know South American countries are big on beef. This is great eating for meat-eaters. Have a wonderful weekend, Dorie.

Dorie,  Please send some of your rain to California.  It will never dampen my spirits ... it will only elevate them.  

Enjoy your weekend.

Hi Dorie,
I was first introduced to empanadas in Argentina.  I love them.  If I ever get to Austin, I must make a point of going to Buenos Aires Cafe!

I would absolutely love to go there. I spent a couple years in Argentina and the food has to be experienced to be believed. They have a love of cuisine and they prepare it so purposefully. It's just so good.
