I could have sworn I wrote about this before, but after searching my blog I did not turn up any posts about finding maple syrup in Buenos Aires. I guess it’s only been in the back of my mind, and now finally time to give you the scoop…
Maple Syrup is one of those more difficult to find items here. There have been various reports of Aunt Jemima appearing in supermarkets from time to time, but that’s not real maple syrup. Trips to Barrio Chino have turned up empty too.
For the only guaranteed place to find maple syrup in Buenos Aires, you have to head to Reale Gourmet on Av. Pueyrreedón. They have maple syrup, but beware… it’s expensive. At the moment they only have 50ml bottles and it’s $290 pesos each!
Still, when you have a craving, you have a craving.
