Argentina's best restaurant, Tegui in Buenos Aires, has opened a six-week pop-up in the gorgeous Uco Valley. The pop-up is being done in collaboration with winemaker Matías Michelini and has been dubbed Tegui SuperUco. The pop-up is being spearheaded by chef Germán Martitegui and was conceptualized two years prior to the opening. The establishment of Tegui SuperUco took a bit of time, as numerous logistical issues needed to be addressed in building a kitchen, dining room and cooking without gas in the natural landscape.

Tegui in Buenos Aires received the distinction of being the 10th best restaurant on Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants list and the pop-up is no different. Being in the Uco Valley in Mendoza has allowed for unique ingredients that are both foraged and farmed. Live hens are delivered from local farmers, trout is caught fresh from mountain rivers and organic tomatoes and arugula are foraged and picked from the surrounding area. All of the unique and fresh ingredients are compiled together into an 11-course tasting menu, which draws inspiration from the natural surroundings.
