It’s a…well, it’s a…I mean you can say it’s Argentinian I guess, but… (???)
I really couldn’t get a hold on Buenos Aires Gardens.
I mean, I’ve been in there. I’ve eaten there, but…
Just look at the sign again…
Okay…so, what am I in for here? Am I getting Argentinian…or am I getting Middle Eastern? Am I getting…both? And how would…both…work…exactly?
Now, Argentinian and Middle Eastern would not a bad thing necessarily. There chunks of populations have moved to new areas, carried their foodways with them, and adapted quite nicely. Look at the Japanese in Peru, the Greeks and the Polish in Baltimore, the Puerto Ricans and Dominicans in New York City, the Armenians and Koreans, well…here.
Magical food fusions can happen, but they don’t just happen out of thin air. Usually a little selling’s involved, and, so far…this place ain’t selling.
It’s a quiet place, with a nice outdoor patio for your dining pleasure, and…well…that’s all I got. The food? Well…
WHAT SHOULD I GET?: Well, I got this pounded Pork steak, breaded and…baked? Fried? One couldn’t tell. It didn’t exactly burst with flavor.
Also, I’d love to tell you more about it, but…Buenos Aires Gardens doesn’t seem to have a website.
IMPORTANT SAFETY TIP, PEOPLE: All I can say that coming here, the whole vibe was weird, was off. It’s like we walked in and it felt like the place was closed, yet they were serving us anyway? I still have no idea what happened that night.
PARKING: Okay. They’ve got a lot that they share with another business. Don’t know how it works in the daytime, but at night there should be just enough spaces to park. Failing that, you can always park along Ventura Blvd.
