Argentinians lack entrepreneurial flair. Argentinians can't cook (tossing a chunk of meat on a grill doesn't count)."Stanexpat" said:Why the locals can't seem to come up with a good burger seems to me to be the result of a lack of vitality in some aspects of the culture here. Making a good burger is not exactly something that requires extensive culinary training. My observation would be that coming up with one would require someone to take intiative and a vision or idea that something could be done better. These qualities generally seem to be in short supply here.
Not to say that you can't get good food here but there is a surprising lack of variety for a city this size.
Such an entrepreneur would get screwed by suppliers, by customers (if possible), by various government agencies, and by thieves and robbers.I would think opening a good hamburger restaurant would be a definite winner that some expat could consider.
