Sushi in Buenos Aires[edit]

Moved from Argentina - in case anyone wants to use it -- Huttite 05:35, 19 Jan 2005 (EST)

Sushi in Buenos Aires

The intense growth of the city beside the River Plate in terms of culinary experiences has been outstanding. The late 2001 political and economical crisis has resulted in a positive way regarding the city's attractions, since the new exchange rate has made of Buenos Aires a very profitable and growing market for foreign investors. The former UCR government staff was christened by the local press as the Sushi group because of their chick way of living and expensive tastes. This characterization crashed with the one the press had made of the menemist government: pizza and champagne, a mix of sophistication and low-class origins. From the millenium to this part, Sushi places, bars, restaurants, pubs and all sort of culinary experiences linked to the Japanese culture have blossomed impressively. The alternatives for the delicate palates who enjoy this oriental feast to the senses broaden daily range from good to exquisite. Of the many different cuisine's that my wife and I have enjoyed, the delicious art form that is sushi is by far our favorite. And I would like to share our culinary experiences with all netsurfers that visit this weblog. That's why we will post up a review of each of the Sushi restaurants we eat at, talking about food quality, ambiance, service and of course all sort of additional tips that we find useful for the local and visitor who enjoys good quality, perfect service and extraordinary food!

Article status[edit]

I'm changing the status of this article back to outline because there are no complete listings on the Eat section. Rmx 14:09, 16 Jan 2006 (EST)

Article name[edit]

The city of Buenos Aires, at least outside of Argentina, is much much more famous than Buenos Aires (province). So I've moved the article from Buenos Aires (city) to Buenos Aires. --Evan 12:11, 6 Feb 2006 (EST)

Good move. I thought about this too when I created the article in pt: - it's a bit like the Paris vs. Paris (Texas) dilemma. Rmx 12:35, 6 Feb 2006 (EST)
Do these articles need moving too?
I did it. It fixed the breadcrumb navigation, so I guess that was the Right Thing To Do. Thanks for all your work, btw. -- Colin 18:03, 6 Feb 2006 (EST)
My pleasure, thanks for your help & patience.

Learn[edit]

I heard from a couple of friends that they are Spanish courses in Buenos Aires. I have seen the link from the uni BA. Is this the only one? Jan 05:23, 6 June 2006

Certainly not. I'm sure there are dozens of good courses available (see the Open Directory link on the left side navigation bar) but apparently only this one has been recommended by a Wikitraveller. --Ricardo (Rmx) 09:41, 6 June 2006 (EDT)
Thanks! I didn't know dmoz Jan 09:57, 6 June 2006

I'm writing a more complete overview on learning Spanish in Buenos Aires as the current one sentence is woefully lacking in utility. --Erik 18:58, 3 July 2009 (ART)

I would like to remove the Education Levels section. I don't see what point it serves to a traveler. Any objections? I'll give it a week. If I don't hear any objections I'm removing it.--Ekmsid 18:16, 7 July 2009 (EDT)

I certainly appreciate the consensus the consensus based approach, but I think this case is clear enough where you can just plunge forward and delete it! --Peter Talk 18:44, 7 July 2009 (EDT)

What exactly is 'latino spanish'? Argentina simply refers to Spanish as 'Castellano' due to history, not the fact that Argentina and Spain speak Castillian Spanish while the rest of Latin America speaks "Latino Spanish". In fact, due to heavy italian/lunfardo influences, Argentinian Spanish is one of the most removed varieties of Spanish from the original Castillian. Moreover, ALL of latin america speaks Castillian Spanish, Argentines (and Uruguayans) are the only one that refer to the language as such.

Buy[edit][add listing]

I'm back on the scene after my first edits back on 2009. I thought I'd give a quick look at this page and the Argentina page. I decided to clean up Exchanging Money to bring it up to date. It's just a first pass. I'll rewrite the introduction on the Argentina page with more detail. Ekmsid (talk) 17:02, 6 April 2014 (EDT)

Awesome! Nice to see your edits here again! Thank you! Cheers, IBAlex (talk) 14:35, 7 April 2014 (EDT)

Minor changes[edit]

hola hice unos cambios pequeños puse a "clubbing" como un punto aparte separado de "drink" , me parece que no quedaba bien ahi y ademas subi la parte que habla de buenos aires como destino turistico gay a "understand" porque en donde estaba quedaba totalmente fuera de contexto ... espero que esten de acuerdo.

Otra cosa, creo que habria que poner la direccion de los boliches, clubs, discos o como quieran llamarlo, la zona en la que se ubican cada uno y tambien mas o menos la musica que pasan. Gracias.........

(no soy de buenos aires asi que no puedo ayudar mucho jajaja)

Porque esto es el Wikitravel inglés, preferimos que hables aquí en esa lengua si puedes. Ojalá conoces al Wikitravel español, tambien? Tus cambios hacen sentido; gracias por la ayuda. (Because this is the English Wikitravel, we prefer that you talk here in that language. Hopefully you know about the Spanish Wikitravel as well? Your change makes sense; thanks for the help.) - Todd VerBeek 19:27, 26 July 2006 (EDT)

About Marini Buffet[edit]

I don't think that Marini should be recommended in such way. I've been there, it is good, but nothing AWESOME as the article suggest. Actually you can see some complaints about the place here: http://www.guiaoleo.com.ar/detail.php?ID=1026 So, i think that the recomendation is completely out of place.

Feel free to plunge forward and edit or remove the listing. Maj 02:01, 26 January 2007 (EST)

Congreso[edit]

Congreso is spelled with only one 's', you retards. 68.175.86.31 20:48, 21 January 2009 (EST)

I don't think "retards" belongs to the spirit of a wiki, but he's right, it's Congreso with only one S ( which means congress ). I don't change it because I see it links to a section, and I'm not sure how and if I can change that too. 201.212.109.232 22:59, 26 April 2009 (EDT)

Bloody Hell! All this griping about Congreso and nobody changed it!?! Very funny. It's fixed.Ekmsid 20:54, 4 July 2009 (EDT)

Racism in Buenos Aires[edit]

Is that section actually accurate, I have a feeling for it to be a bit of an exaggeration especially because at the end it states you should instead go to Brazil. Well, whoever lives there can be the judge of it, just wanted to point it out. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 154.20.22.185 (talkcontribs)

It seemed pretty clearly over the top to me too (and the header was in all caps...). I don't like "racism in X" sections anyway—they are a little too subjective, and they invite controversy and other distractions. So I removed it altogether. --Peter Talk 19:14, 3 March 2009 (EST)

Can we delete this section at this point? --Ekmsid 21:17, 4 July 2009 (EDT)

Do you mean this discussion? If so, no—we don't ever delete discussions. At most, we'd archive them, but we only do that if the talk page has grown very long. For the sake of transparency, we like discussions to stand, to keep a good record of how decisions were made. --Peter Talk 01:17, 5 July 2009 (EDT)
Thanks, good to know --Ekmsid 08:59, 23 July 2009 (EDT)

Crime[edit]

I took a big bite out of this section. Sorry for the allusion humor. I was shy about changing too much but there are a lot of inconsistent, vague and inaccurate statements. The section I didn't change is regarding Taxis. The same cautions are peppered throughout the whole article and they are out-dated. But first I had to talk with a few sources in BsAs to be sure of the accuracy of what I was going to say. This is coming soon. It is true that 4 years ago there continued to be crime issues with Taxis, but the government cracked down on illegal Taxis very successfully. Petty crime continues (like taking indirect routes or rarely changing money for counterfeits). Also the Ezeiza section goes on a bit and contradicts itself frequently. I took a small stab at that but, as taxi is a portion of it it needs more cleanup.

I welcome your opinions about what I'm planning to do. --Ekmsid 21:17, 4 July 2009 (EDT)
