One of the best and most popular cuts of meat served in our country. So popular that foreigners, with his characteristic accent, come to Argentine restaurants clamoring for my name … I want a Bife de Chorizo, they say. All the meat that makes his arrival to the grills are usually tender, but tasting good is something else, and I say so myself. The thing Is that Argentinian are not only passionate for Tango and Football they also love to communicate flavors. To respect our customs must give honor to the essence of Argentina’s meat, cattle are raised on pasture. My goal is not to lose it but bring awareness of what healthy and natural mean and have a memorable taste in the mouths of those who try me.

Years ago that travellers, all around the world, are wondering, and I hear when you ask the waiters!, you want to know why people call me Bife de Chorizo . Everywhere I’m named entrecote, in fact they named in France entrecotè. The truth here is that I like most the way as in Argentina people call me Bife de Chorizo . The truth is that neither I know why they call me like that. I am open to suggestions, if someone gives me a decent version worthy of applauses and standing ovations, then my senses will be ready to listen and then grant that person with one of the best flavors of the Argentinian meat. I can promise that I know I can keep.

When I am asked where I come from it is great. I am found on the outer side of the back of the cow, I am the boneless cutlet there. When I am separated from the bone, before they cut me like steak, I have triangular and cylindrical shape, so I go to the clinic for a surgery so i can become beautiful. When I am cut my measure is between 3 and 5 cm wide.

Each lunch or dinner I receive all the applauses and many people compliment me. Most of the time I do not hear compliments, nothing is left of me at the plate, but this is a worthy death resulting from the design of culinary arts. I am dig, cut, chew and in the end is like a spa session where they get my best taste.

I am cook on the grill, for the taste of whoever eats me, cooked, ready, etc.. and serve me with broken potato accompaniment sometimes other with salad. Bife de Chorizo a la Riojana is another version of me that is for the brave and bold because the amount of things that accompany me and the way i am prepared. They put us making a beautiful decoration on the plate. Each of us condiments and sides have a special place and waiters take us to the table with all the glamour we deserve. I am the top recommendation and one of the who gets more YES everytime the menu is offered. Half Size or Full Size, I am always present and you can eat me as you like.

I do not want to talk much about me because I always say the best things in life must be tested and I’m usually on everyone’s lips, even before the tourists arrive in the country, they ask for me so i let you be the one who know me by my flavour.

Bristol Hotel Buenos Aires

This month we decided to revisit Bristol Hotel Buenos Aires. A great option in Downtown near to very interesting places of the city. We share our experience!

Bristol Hotel Buenos Aires

When you enter Bristol Hotel Buenos Aires you have no longer the feeling you are in Buenos Aires Downtown. Even when the hotel is in front of 9 de Julio Avenue, noise is not heard. The staff at the reception is very warm and polite. Well provided with information and suggestions for the passengers. One of the things that i’ve noticed talking with Haydee, manager of the hotel, is that they take good care of the personal relation to provide a customer care focused on exceeding expectations.

The Hotel Bristol offers a great location on the 9 de Julio Avenue, across from the Obelisk. You can walk out and watch the widest Avenue in South America, July 9th. and standing in the center you will see the obelisk. You are three blocks away from Florida Street and also from Colon Theater, two emblematic points of interest in Buenos Aires. Also 6 blocks away from plaza de Mayo and the Pink House. Bristol is also 10 blocks from Puerto Madero, a typical touristic spot and stylish restaurant area, and just one block away from Corrientes Avenue, a major theater and entertainment venue. Is 200 metres from 9 de Julio subway station and 6 km from Jorge Newbery Airport. Visits to the local points of interest can be arranged through the tour desk.

“Hard to find a better location in Central Buenos Aires. Very good value, and extremely helpful staff.” Says Alan Morgan on his review on Trip Avisor.

We started visiting the rooms. 125 to be exact. They have ample windows and laminated floors, some of them with a view of the city lights at night. I was amazed specially with the view from room 915. You can see the obelisk and most of the avenue. This room is requested by professional photographers to capture the essence of Buenos Aires during the day and the night. Amenities include air conditioning, cable TV, and queen or king sized beds.

You can also exercise in the exclusive gym.

Hotel Bristol’s restaurant is situated on the mezzanine floor and serves breakfast buffet with croissants, pastries, regional and international specialties, and snacks. Our CEO Gabriel Barok was impressed with the variety of options included. I also had the opportunity to be there when passengers were having breakfast and i can tell that they were very satisfied. Room service is also available if you would like to stay resting in the room and enjoy the great view.
