Where it was one of the many ancient grain silos of Puerto Madero today is home to one of the best haute cuisine restaurants in Buenos Aires. Chila regularly figures in the top 20 of the top 50 in Latin America. It is also the only Argentinean restaurant included in the Relais & Chateau chain.
The kitchen with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooks an elegant interior that in turn overlooks the dykes. An aperitif with yerba mate infusion in the bar is a perfect start to the seven-course tasting menu only for ten people per day. The menu directs diners through the flavours of all Argentina, with a practical map that identifies the origin of the ingredients. Delicious dishes on the trip include house snacks, then asparagus and yolk. Next, prawns, radish and yogurt and black hake with almonds. Then a surprise dish and Angus steak with Creole sauce. As a prelude to the meringue and citrus closure, to conclude with carob, chocolate and topinambur.
Its focus is on seasonal ingredients, traceable products and the multicultural composition of Argentina, Chila offers an innovative interpretation of the cuisine of our country. In 2016, he returned to Argentina to work for a year with Soledad Nardelli in Chila, before leaving for Moscow, where he received a call from Chila's owner Andrés Porcel asking him to return as executive chef.
The menu, as we said, changes depending on the season, with 10 different concepts rotating over the months. Highlights include black hake with Jerusalem artichoke; cured veal with yogurt and chimichurri or squid with lettuce and capers.
Chef Bargero is an early riser, he used to get up at 5 in the morning to harvest the garden in Mirazur, today he likes to use the early hours of the day to tour the Central Market of Buenos Aires.
