NOLA Gastropub is open!

I am still not a “real” vegetarian, because I do eat a little bit of fish (however, very rarely) – AND because I yesterday broke a six-month veggie stretch with a delicious crispy chicken sandwich at NOLA Buenos Aires!! I have written about NOLA before, when chef Liza came to Puesto Viejo, and I had the pleasure of visiting her closed-door restaurant in January. (That would have been a good blog post – especially the fact that we were several hours late! The highway was cut off because of protesters and Liza and Ticol still received us warmly.) Liza and beer-making boyfriend Ticol then took their closed-door restaurant to the next level and opened the gastropub NOLA on July 18th. They have quickly become a neighborhood favorite and half of Buenos Aires’ food blogs are filled with photos of people devouring Cajun-style fried chicken.

I stopped by for a drink on opening night, sort of to show my support, even though it wasn’t really necessary, they were already full! – and then had the pleasure of trying the famous sandwich last night. I also had a delicious cocktail made of Cynar and grapefruit. Yum! And a steal at 35 pesos – it is hard to get a cocktail anywhere in BsAs for that price. The sandwich totally lived up to its expectation: the bread (baked by Liza) is tender and soft, and the chicken is a perfection of crunchy goodness with nice flavors. There are sauces with different spice levels (awesome!) and while I haven’t tried the other offerings, they look delicious as well. (Actually, I did try the gumbo back in January.)

I will leave you with a photo I have borrowed from the NOLA website, and encourage you to check it out! (Gorriti 4389, esquina con Julián Alvarez. Closed Tuesdays. Great happy hour deals!)

    Thank you for the information. Some people have recommended “Spring”, “La huerta del sol” and “Los sabios” (vegetarian restaurants). I think that they are (and I prefer as I am vegan) with “tenedor libre” because one can chose to try a little bit of everything and give more ideas and recipes to cook.

    También me gustó esta recomendación, cada una con su estilo ;). Me hiciste extrañar mis escapadas a Buenos Aires y mis almuerzos por Palermo 😛
