This was 18 courses I'll never forget. 18 courses you say? Yep! This is a closed door restaurant, you wouldn't know you were at a restaurant if you didn't get dropped off at the door. The restaurant is located in an industrial area, which makes it even more unsuspecting. From the moment you get in your senses are set on edge by the combinations of flavors you've never considered (hay smoked butter, anyone), paired with wines you've never tasted for a sensory explosion that reverberates​ through your whole body. I never thought I'd say that a popcorn ice cream sandwich would be the thing that made me want to turn around and go right back in, but it was one of the things for sure. The sommelier​ gave very thorough descriptions of the wines and any many cases the wine got markedly better with the food even though delicious on their own.   From the minute you walk in until you are finished a couple of hours later, the food doesn't stop coming and you just can't believe each next course. I'm a pretty picky eater and agreed to try everything, even if something I wouldn't normally enjoy (beets) but virtually everything was so good I couldn't say no to anything. If you are in Buenos Aires, try this restaurant, but get your reservations early because it fills up fast. This was the highlight of my dining in Buenos Aires. Don't miss this if there is an opportunity to go.
Out of the four high-end restaurants that my boyfriend and I attended, Aramburu was probably the best - so I will begin this review by saying that this rating is definitely relative to those other experiences, and I am not comparing these restaurants to those I would go to in NYC for instance. We somehow managed to get seated at the Chef's Table, which was a wonderful experience as it was just those two seats in front of the kitchen, with no one else around us. Truly a romantic, intimate experience! I truly believe that chefs at Aramaburu do dessert far better than they do their savoury courses, but I did quite enjoy the pumpkin cannoli, the crackers, and the scallops in meringue. I generally abhor meringue, so if I end up liking it I probably think it's pretty amazing :) The bread course was quite good - the sourdough that we had with some butter was divine. The desserts were also quite good, and the sorbet with coconut flakes was heavenly. Probably the one thing that missed the mark was the dumpling which was a bit dry, but again, this review is relative to my other experiences in BA, so I think Aramburu is still deserving of 5 stars. Overall, a fantastic experience. If you do go, be sure to get the wine pairing, you won't regret it :)
18 courses of pure delight! Wild ride of flavors, textures, sights and smells. The pumpkin cannoli, shrimp toast and quail stood out .. but... the popcorn ice cream sandwich might have been been the highlight Underrated in the top 50 Latam list.. deserves to be rated higher
