The Quest for Sushi

While we love so much about Buenos Aires, we’ll be the first to admit that we have been less than enthusiastic about the sushi here. For a major cosmopolitan city, we expected more options and choices even though we realize that beef is the primary food here.  Luckily, our complaining about the sushi is now over.

Last night, we met our friend Eddie and his wife for dinner at Osaka on Soler and Fitz Roy in Palermo Hollywood.  Osaka is a Peruvian and Asian fusion restaurant and it more than satisfied our craving for good sushi.  The food was without a doubt some of the best we’ve had since we’ve been here. (We were not very impressed with Casa Cruz.)

The sushi rolls were creative and delicious, the sashimi was fresh and melted in your mouth, the ceviche was outstanding, and the hot dishes didn’t dissapoint. Even the spicy maki was actually a little spicy! And, while they didn’t have fresh tuna, we didn’t even notice in the end because everything else was so good.

While it is a little expensive, it is not unreasonable and the quality cannot be beat.  You will need to make a reservation in advance though as they were completely booked on a Monday night.  You may also run into some celebrities – we sat next to Benicio del Toro.

I’d definitely recommend checking this place out.
