Buenos Aires loves freshly squeezed Orange Juice

7 May

Ever since we started walking the street of Buenos Aires I noticed something really peculiar…

In many, many corners of the city you would find carts selling freshly squeezed orange juice. In Florida Street, a very popular shopping street, we saw between 4 or 5 in a 10 block strip.

We had the chance to get on a double-decker bus to get a snapshot of the city and those orange juice carts were everywhere. We also took a walking-tour of the city and the carts were waiting for us in every corner.

I just could not leave Buenos Aires without tasting an orange juice squeezed right in front of me. In San Telmo we had the first chance to drink it and it was super sweet and delicious. I wish I could have drunk so many more… But it will be on my next trip, because I wish this was only the first time I visit this wonderful city.

So if you visit Buenos Aires, please have SEVERAL orange juices in my name. Just say that your friend at KarmaFree Cooking sent you… 🙂

    I didn’t realize oranges and OJ trucks were part of their street food culture! How awesome is that? I remember being in Italy and getting amazing blood red orange juice at every restaurant. None on the street, that I can remember, though. I’ve not been to Argentina, but I’ll gladly have a gallon or two in your name! Que rico

      Anne… have you visited Buenos Aires too??? We do have some orange juice carts here in PR, but they give you the whole orange, not just the juice. They peel the oranges in one whole swoop… kinda neat. Maybe I should get some pics for some future post…
