Guest Post: Where to Eat Gluten-Free in Buenos Aires

This is a guest post by Sofía Lunazzi, a journalist from Argentina. I learned about Sofía through Carolina Rocha, the founder and editor of Aglutenados, a gluten-free publication  in Argentina. 

Where to Eat Gluten-Free in Buenos Aires
by Sofía Lunazzi

A new restaurant in the touristic Palermo neighborhood, where you can get a  whole gluten free menu. You will be able to taste pasta, famous Argentine meat, dessert and more. Lovely environment.
Pros: they have a backyard, where you can eat breakfast or lunch in the open.
Cons: they only serve dinner on Thursdays and Fridays.

Tea Connection
This was the first restaurant where I ate a gluten free meal. They serve only natural food, which includes salads, stews and juice, among others.
Pros: they have several restaurants all over the city (you may check them on their web page).
Cons: they only offer one gluten free dessert.

Los Sauces
Excellent place to eat meat, you can also taste pasta, empanadas and desserts.
Pros: it’s one of those places where tables are big and you can celebrate a big event with friends and family.
Cons: they don’t accept credit cards.

As a result of the hard work of the celiac associations, the famous restaurant chain, in Argentina, offers gluten free menus. We can eat hamburgers, salad, ice cream and French fries.
Pros: you already know you’ll like it. McDonald’s tastes the same everywhere.
Cons: they don’t have gluten free buns, so you have to eat the hamburger with fork and knife.
