On Saturday morning I met some American friends for brunch in Palermo at Oui Oui. It was my first brunch experience in Buenos Aires and it did not disappoint. The atmosphere was super cute, which is probably why there were more women eating there than men, and the food was scrumptious.

brioches, croissants, muffins, bagels
& gigantic alfajors.

Most breakfasts in Argentina consist of two or three medialunas (mini croissants) or a tostado (a toasted ham & cheese sandwich), so after a while you really start to crave something more substantial. I ordered the huevos completos, and my plate arrived full with eggs, bacon, potatoes, toast and salad. We also ordered a plate of french toast to share, and even though it came with honey instead of syrup (because syrup doesn't exist here) it was still wonderful and made me feel like I was at home.
After becoming pleasantly full, we headed off to Palermo Soho where we put our pesos to good use (to say the least). Fortunately, I live nowhere near Palermo otherwise I think I would be in trouble.
