A real Kosher trend
Today, Judeo-Argentine cuisine is bursting into the capital.
With a Jewish population of approximately 250,000, Buenos Aires is home to the second largest Jewish community in the Americas after New York.
Among the city’s various restaurants, it is those of Chef Tomás Kalika, Mishiguene and Fayer, who stood out in 2018. They have seduced his clients through his work of merging Jewish cuisine with Argentine cooking techniques.
