Sirop & Folie Restaurant Casual Chic | Buenos Aires, Argentina | Nestled at one of the most charming alleys of Buenos Aires, right in Recoleta, is Sirop & Folie, managed and run in a very casual chic style by Agus Numer. They define themselves as contemporary Argentinean Cuisine. Open for lunch, hight tea, dinner, Brunch or your own private event.
Nice, relaxed and unpretentious ambiance, with a rather eclectic crowd, showing bits and touches of refinement, which made me think about the Casual Chic title. Tradition, simplicity and good taste. Service was a bit slow, but they were on a rainy Wednesday night totally sold out, and that should mean something right. Sirop comes from their origins as tea house and pastry lounge. Folie could be interpreted as madness or extravaganza, and both fit to their casual refined and eclectic style.
My choice for the night was very healthy. I was there with my two local great friends, and we decided to share all plates and taste everything. But my own personal choices were the following: Cherry tomatoes, almonds, arugula, goat cheese and olive vinaigrette Salad. (USD 11)
As the Main Course I went for chicken breasts marinated with celery, toasted almonds, onion chutney and sweet potato chips. This was just what I wanted. It was strongly recommend it. (USD 12)
To finalize our Contemporary Argentinean Cuisine experience, I could not help the tempting sound of a Tarte Tatin, caramelized apples with ice cream on Sablee dough. (USD 9) For more information or bookings www.siroprestaurant.com Buen Provecho CM @ Carlos Melia Recommends
