Meet our chef
A real food story of an Argentinian that fetched up in South Africa and just wanted to share his country's flavours.
I always watched my Mom prepared the everyday food, and on the contrary my Dad, wasn’t cooking very often; but once he cook, it was mind blowing! Therefore since early days I started cooking for myself. I used to be always the only one cooking for my friends and family. i landed in South Africa on the 29th of April 2003 as a 23-year-old and a bag full of ideas and visions. After early beginnings in other industries (being a DJ for 16 years then I had an Import-Export, Tour operator and a Plasticware shop), ARGIES was born in 2012.
My passion is a mixture of food and fire. I love to express myself though my food. Hence my catering company enhance this two elements to the maximum. My first pop up in South Africa was in 2015 , then I open at Mojo Market in 2017, Then I open my first restaurant in 2018 PICADAS (84 Shortmarket Street) and finally N° Juan in 2021 at Love my Neighbour (110 Bree Street). Actually I am concentrating on ARGIES and in our sister company N° Juan (produces Argentinian delicacies in Cape Town and supplies SPAR and many delis), but also contemplating my next big restaurant.
