I mean why not? (Plus the article calls Hotel Boca a "17 storey building" which makes it even better, the Boca obsession is borderline scarey)

haha

I actually checked the place out last Spring. its a brand new building, unfortunately a few blocks off the beaten path in the financial/business district. fine if you have business there, but its a morgue at night. It would be like staying in a hotel on Wall street.

the Maradona penthouse suite is about $250 a night.


but the Bife de chorizo escalibada de Pimiento sounds great. it has nothing to do with Chorizo sausage from Italy or Spain.

That's what the Argentines call NY strip steak and the escalibada de pimiento part is smothered in peppercorns or sautéed peppers.

I had something very similar with Bife de Lomo, which we know as Filet Mignon or Chateaubriand.



About $9 USD at Parrilla 'La Lorenza' in Recoleta. ask for it 'a punto'.

yummy
