Kensho review Rate it

Kensho blazed a pioneering trail across the closed-door firmament for a number of years and now has a spacious, zen-style home in the city's vegetarian heartland. Here chef Máximo Cabrera has continued his organic alchemy with raw, coeliac-friendly creations like bite-sized Chori Nori, which are an I-can't-believe-it's-not-chorizo revelation; likewise, the creamy mound of cashew cheese is a lactose-defying feat. Despite his healthier-than-thou ethos, Cabrera hasn't forgotten his sense of humour, reflected in dishes with names like Crêpe Circles, Red Hot Chili Papas and James Brownie. For a night-time treat, the five-course tasting menu is AR$180. To spread the good word on all things organic, Cabrera also runs cooking classes on Monday mornings.
