I just bough $100 worth of gluten free breads, flours, broth, noodles and a few other things... I hope they let me pass through customs. I know I can buy much of it there, but I figure this will tide me over until I figure out what I like haha...

Send some good vibes this way so they don't take my suitcase from me at Ezeiza ;-)

You can buy rice flour in lots of dieteticas, you can buy almidon or corn starch in any carrefour, xanthan gum is a tough one to find, I used to bring my own, but it's here. Now I make muffins that don't need it (you can buy baking powder and baking soda in any supermercado) There are a couple brands of ready-made empanadas and you can buy the dough pre-made into flat circles too. There's a nice dietetica on Viamonte 2 blocks after you cross 9 de Julio going into Microcentro, on the left. They have cookies, dried fruit, nuts, all the empanadas, pizzas and lasagnas, and one of the days is discounted on GF products. I used to bring almonds that I could make into almond flour in a cuisinart, because nuts are not abundant here at the moment.

Argentina's custom limit on food items is 5kg... I hope they don't weigh my food, because I definitely have more than 5kg.

Is it fairly easy to find chicken broth and lasagna noodles? Leaving those behind because like a good American, I just have too much stuff... :rolleyes:

I went to Almacen de pizzas a while ago... I was disappointed. The crust was very hard and my knife wasn´t doing the job to cut it...

However, my friend found the most amazing restaurant EVER recently. It is called Syntaxis http://www.sintaxispalermo.com/

Everything is gluten free and it is AMAZING! They bring you delicious gluten free garlic bread while you wait for your food. Then they have an incredible menu--I ate chicken tenders (fried) and onion rings! Which is not easy to find unless you make it yourself (which I do sometimes)

Hands down, my favorite restaurant in BSAS. It was so easy and stress free!

On the other hand, I am living in Almagro/Balvanera area and have not been able to find bread, empanadas or pizza since I moved here about a month ago :-( sad...

Where do you find your xantham gum?

Gluten free bread right now (in my neighborhood) is approximately 65 pesos. It's steep and the mixes are just as expensive but only yield one loaf =( I need to make my own from scratch to save money.

Rojas. The answer to everything celiac is Rojas. Broths, soups, xantham gum, flours, goodies, alfajores, pizzas, noodles, esencia de vainilla, everything. The whole store is for celiacs. Took me long enough to figure that out and find the closest one to my house...
