Are there places where one can purchase these food items:
1) Steel-cut oatmeal.
2) Hot spicy sauces - Chilli Garlic or Sambal Olek?
Asian red-chili pastes, or even Tabasco?

Try the chinese groceries down in China Town in Belgrano. I'm not sure that you'll find the steel cut oats though.

There is a place in the Microcenter in Buenos Aires that has a lot of seeds and nut and grain type things. I am so sorry I don't remember the name of the place. I just checked with my son and he is the same. Says he could take you right to it but after 8 months can't remember the street names even where it is located. I know this isn't much help but at least you know it is there. Or was there 8 months ago. Maybe if you ask around in the Microcenter, someone will know.
I, too, don't know about the steel cut oats. There are some things we use that they don't seem to have ever heard of in Argentina. For example many people have pecan trees that they grow for ornamentals but most people don't eat them. I could not buy them even in Bariloche. My son introduced his Buenos Aires girlfriend and her family to them last trip down and they were amazed. Since then they have planted some in Viedma--for eating.
