This Sunday we’re hosting another Pop-Up here at Nola!

It’s going to be a night of pork, pork and more pork.

I assume for those of you in Buenos Aires, you know about Chochan down in San Telmo? If not, GO NOW. And order the sandwich de lengua and 10 hamburgers. Best burger I’ve had in BA. Hands down. If she was on my end of town, I’d be inhaling those babies everyday. Word.

Well, we’re lucky enough to have the chef/owner, aka badass Naiara, taking over our Palermo kitchen with a menu that is guaranteed to leave you oinking. Another woman in the kitchen, I LOVE IT.

As always, doors open at 5 with happy hour til 8, featuring 30 peso pints of Broeders Artesanal on tap.

The menu-

Tacos de lengua & Tacos Vegetarianos

Ribs con tamarindo con ensalada de mango y repollo

Croquetas de papa y morcilla con alioli de manzana

Ssäm de panceta con remolacha

Némesis de choco amagro con crema y toffee

Reminder- the regular NOLA menu will not be available Sunday, November 16. The pig is taking over!

Reservations are not accepted and the kitchen closes at 11:30, or when we run out of food, which tends to be around 10:30/11 mas o menos on Pop-Up nights. As always, there is no table service at Nola, order at the bar and pick up your food from the kitchen when your name is called.

The night will be cash only and NOLA is located at Gorrtiti 4389, corner of Julian Alvarez.

Have a great weekend, and please forgive me for the previous cursing, PawPaw!
