If you are looking for a culinary travel guide to Argentina, then you’ve come to the right place. Argentina is one of South America’s hottest tourist destinations and for good reason. Buenos Aires, the capital city of Buenos Aires, is just a few steps from the tourist attractions like museums, parks, and restaurants. Here, I’ll share with you my favorite foods from my trip to this South American paradise.
Buenos Aires: If you’re a steak lover or a seafood eater, this is where you must visit. The culinary delights in Buenos Aires can’t be beaten. My favorite is a delicious fettuccine Alfredo that is made fresh from an Italian white kitchen. Another favorite is the steak and potatoes tortilla soup. There are many other wonderful restaurants but these two are my favorites. If you want to check out some more restaurants, I suggest getting online and doing a search for fettuccini Aldo a Buenos Aires, and for seafood connoisseurs, search for Arroz y sarda.
Ceviche: This dish is a cross of lemons and fish. Although it may sound a bit exotic, I can assure you that you won’t miss the delicious taste of this dish. I highly recommend a glass of red wine with this delectable delicacy. I also recommend a bottle of Brazilian brandy to go along with this delectable delight. You will definitely enjoy this delicious food.
Churros: These are made from cornmeal that is fried. If you love cornmeal, then you will love these churros. It is a great way to end your meal or as a snack before you retire for the night. If you want something different, try the newer versions that have nuts or seeds in them instead of the usual cornmeal. This will give you a different flavor.
Restaurant Recommendations: Buenos Aires has a plethora of restaurants. If you are not up to trying all of the restaurants that are available, you should at least try the following: La Costanera, Plaza de la Constitucion, La Barrica, Sambodromo, Palermo, Tortugas, Buenos Aires de Los Dedos, and El Burgado. All of these restaurants are very popular, but I suggest checking out the ones in this article: La Barrica, Plaza de la Constitucion, Sambodromo, El Burgado, and Palermo.
Restaurants: Although there are tons of wonderful restaurants in Argentina, I would suggest sticking to the most popular Italian dishes. You can get delicious meals that are very easy to make from ingredients that are readily available around the country. This will save you money since you can try different things when you go out to eat. It is much more fun to sit down with your friends and have a lovely meal than it is to cook and eat while fighting the crowds in a restaurant.
Teppanyaki: Teppanyaki is a Japanese-style barbeque where meat (usual pork) is seared on a hot gas burner. It is very popular all over Latin America and goes well with rice. If you are in Argentina, you should definitely try this: La Bandera, Sambodromo, Buenos Aires de Los Dedos, El Burgado, and La Costanera.
Fajitas: Fajitas are spiced beef or pork slabs usually served with tortilla chips. They are delicious and easy to make. If you are in Argentina, you should go to La Costanera, La Barrica, Sambodromo, El Burgado and La Ene. There are also many restaurants in Medellin that serve fajitas. Restaurants in Uruguay and Chile serve fajitas as well, but you will probably be limited to ordering them at a gas station or restaurant near you.
