Buenos Aires Eats

Gaze at the Graffitti

For dessert head to Costa Rica to Tegui. The sign is tiny, so look for the graffiti-covered wall, knock on the big black door, and wait until you’re granted entry into Palermo Hollywood’s ultimate sanctum of food chic. The brainchild of celebrity chef Germán Martitegui—he of Ølsen and a flashy joint called Casa Cruz—this concealed yet ultra-stylish restaurant is known for its super-eclectic tasting menus—think cow-brain pie, or a banana split with gingerbread and coconut ice cream. Whatever you order, accompany it with a glass of sweet sémillon, one of Argentina’s tremendously underrated dessert wines.

The wall at Tegui has one of the most famous pieces of graffiti in Buenos Aires, an ever-changing collage created by street artists referencing bits of culture—the lead actor from the TV series The Fugitive, Sly Stone, and Sly Stallone (go figure).
