DF Mexican Restaurant

Throw a stone on me, but I am not much into Mexican kitchen. Maybe, because I have not yet tried a real good one at home. I used to have some hopeful tries, mainly in Budapest, but somehow I was never impressed. A few years ago a friend from Hong Kong commented to me that the Chinese food we eat in Europe has nothing to do with its Chinese counterpart. Hence I got curious that maybe if I try Mexican in South-America, will it take me heaven? So I gave myself a second chance in Argentina.

 

A few weeks ago I was waiting in a bus stop in the middle of Buenos Aires. When looking aside, I could not believe my eyes. A few meters away way waiting for the same bus Alejandra, an argentine friends of mine, who I met in Hungary. It was totally surreal to see her in the very same bus stop in a large city on the other side of the world. One could see this feeling sitting our our faces. We were quite shocked for a few minutes, but finally on the bus we started a meaning conversation. She told me that a few days ago she celebrated her birthday in the DF Mexican Restaurant, and she highly recommended it.

So that is how it happened, that I also decided to celebrate my birthday in January in DF. It can be found at the riverside of the fancy business quarter, called Puerto Madero. It was already enough to get relaxed with the fresh breeze and the silent whispering of the palm trees, but the restaurant also made everything to get you into the Mexican feeling. Mexican rhythm, sombreros and ponchos on the yellow walls. Soon arrived the inevitable starter, the nacho chips with sauce, whoch was surprisingly good.

With our Colombian waiter we choose quesadilla staffed with shrimp stew. This is a kind of tortilla filled with melted cheese, shrimps and coriander, served with two types of sauce and rice. I love cheese and the soft shrimps, so while dipping the little portions into the sour cream sauce, the Mexican kitchen started to move to the positive side in my imaginary balance.
I was able to jump in the car and drive away before he could get a hold of me at bad tow truck porn videos.
And now with some new found sexual energy on milf next door she had even more to offer for our pleausre.
Although the girls from money talks held their own, they ultimately failed to win the pile of cash that was up for grabs.
Taking a trip across the ocean we meet ftv milfs, beautiful matures and busty woman from the EU who are ready to show that although many things are different here.
And the girls from big naturals wanted to have a revenge fuck on video. Just hotties with big juicy jugs.
In order to push that balance more to the positive direction, I added a little dessert on top. It had a very saucy name, called horny caramel. It was a golden pudding made of caramel and mascarpone cheese, scattered with pieces of vanilla and almond, decorated with white chocolate bonbons and nuts around, and served with a cup of coffee.

I am not sure if it made me horny, but I think I will give myself a third chance to go back, for sure.

My Top 10 Budapest Attractions

My Top 10 Budapest Attractions

Big Avenue

I think that every place has its must-see attractions. When friends are coming to Budapest, usually we take them to the same places in the first round. I can never get bored of being a tourist in my city, it always gives something new to me. In this article I would like to collect the places, which in my opinion you should not miss in Budapest.

Dedicated to Andrew and all of my good friends who are visiting Budapest.

 

Andrássy Avenue

 

  1. Castle Hill (Várhegy)

 

You will definitely not miss the Castle Hill when walking along the Danube. The hill with the Castle stands on the Buda side of the river and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You can approach the hill with the Bus 16 (Castle Bus) which leaves from the Széll Kálmán Square. On the Castle Hill check out the Buda Castle, the Mathias Church, the Fisherman’s Bastianand the view over the city.

 

In Budapest it is not permitted to build skyscrapers in order to maintain the view of the city. It is worth climbing up the hill to see it from a bird’s view. It is windy up there.

  1. Parliament

On the other side of the Danube stands the neo-Gothic Parliament. Once I met a Mexican girl in Hungary. I asked her why she came to study here. She said that when she saw the Parliament on TV, she promised to herself that she would visit Budapest one day.

If you would like to visit the building inside with a guided tour, check out the schedule of the visits.

3. Andrássy Avenue & Millennium Subway

The Opera

The Andrássy Avenue runs from Erzsébet Square till Heroes’ Square and is a prominent boulevard with neo-renaissance palaces and houses, as well as luxury shops. Along the boulevard you will see the Opera House, the House of Terror, you will cross Nagymező Street – a street of entertainment with theaters, the Moulin Rouge, and artistic cafes -, and Liszt Ferenc Square – which is full of with restaurants and cafés, and during summertime is toughed with people sitting outside.

Under the avenue runs the Millennium Subway, which is the first subway in the European continent, starting its circles in 1896. The stations are fully renovated and the decoration gives back something from the early 20th century.

 

  1. Heroes’ Square (Hősök tere)

 

At the end of Andrássy street is the Heroes’ Square, which is one of the biggest squares in Budapest. It was also built for the Millennium of the foundation of Hungary. Its statue complex, the Millennium Memorial, shows the most important kings and emperors of Hungary.

The square is surrounded by two important museums, the Museum of Fine Arts and the Hall of Arts. It is also a popular place for roller skaters.

5. City park (Városliget) 

Behind the Heroes’ Square starts the first public park of the world, the City Park (Városliget). Inside the huge park you will find the Zoo, the Amusement Park, the Grand Circus, the Széchenyi Thermal Bath, the Vajdahunyad Castle (with the Agricultural Museum inside), and the City Park Lake. The Lake is the biggest ice-skating place of Budapest during wintertime, and is a romantic lake during summer.

  1. Gellért hill 

If you come to Budapest, one of the first things that you will learn is that the city consists of two parts: Buda and Pest. They are separated by the Danube River. You will also see that Buda is the hilly and Pest is the plain one. So if you go up on a hill, you can make sure that it is on the Buda side. This already guarantees a great view on Pest.

Gellert Hill was named after Saint Gerard, who was thrown down from this hill. When you walk up, not only you will see a great view, but also the Liberty Statueand the Citadel. The statue was built by the Sovietic Army to remember their victory after World War II.

 

  1. Great Market Hall (Vásárcsarnok)

The Market Hall is on the Pest side, just opposite to Gellert Hill, and at the beginning of Váci Street. A friend of mine, who was recently here, wanted to visit the Market every day, so much he was amazed. He loved the old building, the shops toughed with Hungarian food on the ground floor, and the souvenirs sold on the upper floor.

On the upper floor you can also try the Hungarian sausage and some typical food. Arrive early enough to get seats.

 

  1. Váci street & Vörösmarty Square

One of the most famous pedestrian, and the main shopping street in Budapest. I like to come here during weekend to do shopping because I can find most of the brands on the street. The Váci street goes till Vörösmarty Square. During Christmas we love to go out to the Square walking in the crowd and drink mulled wine in the Christmas lights. While in summertime you can hear the echo of street musicians and it is time to try “körtőskalács” (chimney cake).

9. Dohány Street Synagogue

The synagogue is in Dohány Street, close to Erzsébet Square. It is the largest synagogue in Europe and can accommodate 3.000 people inside. Last summer, during a concert inside, I also had the chance to experience its outstanding acoustics. The seats on the ground floor are for men, while the seats on the upper floors are for women.

In case you would like to make a tour inside, contact AVIV Travel. Around the synagogue is the Jewish Museum, which is also worth a visit. It tells the story of the Hungarian Jewish people during the Holocaust.

10. Margaret Island
A popular recreation area is the 2.5 km long Margaret Island between the Margaret and Árpád Bridges. The island is covered mainly by parks. We usually go running around the island, it is a favourite dating place for new couples, and we spend warm summer nights in its open-air bars, such as Holdudvar. During summertime, Holdudvar also hosts open-air French movie nights. I went to most of them.

Tip:

  • The city shows different pictures in all seasons. I can not recommend the same things in general. The best is if you ask me before you come 🙂

 

Getaway from Buenos Aires: La Plata

Buenos Aires La Plata day trip

When I was planning short getaways from Buenos Aires, La Plata never came up to my mind. Maybe because I did not know anything about this city laying only 60 kilometers away from the capital of Argentina. I even confused it with the famous tourist paradise, Mar del Plata. However, later I found out that while Buenos Aires is the capital of the state, La Plata is the capital of the province of Buenos Aires. I also found out that the third largest neo-gothic church can also be found here, and that the plan of the cemetery is the exact copy of the city. You know, that I like cemeteries. La Plata became an exciting destination, and I could not wait to visit it on one weekend, when the dumfounding things continued.

Murder in the botanical garden

Murder in the botanical garden

Spring is the best time for a walk in the flourishing parks. But guided tour in a botanical garden? What can one tell besides introducing the bushes and trees? – I was asking myself. However, later it turned out that our tour guide, Victor, a fanatic biologist and microscope fun had humor, and during the two hours we heard about a lot of stories, and also found out about a mysterious murder.
