Day 2 and 3: food, shopping, city!~~ HEAVEN!

I can't describe how much I am enjoying this trip! The city, the people, the food, the shopping malls and the company...everything is Perfect and Fabulous!!!
Let's go into food, shall we?
Friday's dinner (9pm) at one of the best international fusion restaurant in the city called BENGAL
my hubby playing his cellphonethe bread basket. Fresh bread is a MUST in every meal in Argentina
The appetizer: the best octopus ever
ME concentrated on enjoy it!
main course: mine was fish with salad and Star had lamb with risotto
the peach sorbet to clean the palatecoffee with dessert: chocolate mouse filled with peach
Saturday shopping at my fav. purse store called PRUNEI got three bells and one purse. ME happy with the new purchases!!!
City pic
lunch (3pm) at Paseo Alcorta (shopping mall)
pumpkin mafalti in a tomato sauce with grilled portbello
Star had ravioli
dessert: mango mousse cheesecake and coffee of course! as you can see we have European style of small cup coffee, not the American large cups one. These are much stronger in flavor, I missed these so much.
snack: a bar made with toasted sun flower seeds, sesame and honey
For dinner (9pm) we had parrilla (Argentinian BBQ). I had grilled veggies and Star had Asado
Sunday's breakfast (9am). Star had capucchini with 2 crossaint
I had again toast with jams and cheese, cafe au lait and orange juice
more shopping. How beautiful is this mall, right?
lunch (2pm) at one of Star's friend's home: The best homemade ASADO. ME with the AsadorAnd Asador's wifeFirst round of beef. Sooooooo juicy and tasty!Chorizos in flat bread...... Amazingly good!Asado de tira with saladsecond pieceoh.....man! I've never enjoyed meat soooo much!!!!!!!
dessert: ice cream
More city walkcoffee in the afternoon
Now, we're heading to another friend's home for dinner!
Hope you enjoyed looking these fab food as much as I am! ^_^
From tomorrow on I'll be working on my research while Star works. But.... more great food will come! :D I'm sure working will be much easier this way!
