Argentina Food & Drink

Argentina Food & Drink

Breakfast in the hotels we work with will usually provide the necessities of a traditional American breakfast. Expect coffee, tea, juice, yogurt, pastries, toast, fruit, and cereal. Afternoon tea is common in Argentina, as many gather to drink mate with a pastry or toasted sandwich on the side. All meals in Argentina, start later in the day compared to the United States. Usually, lunch is served around 2 pm or later and dinner is served around 9 pm.

Buenos Aires is a city that takes dining seriously, and meals can easily last for hours. Argentina is renowned for their steak, and there are several parrilla steak houses in the city, where you can find asado, barbecued beef, of excellent quality. Pair an asado with a glass of red wine for the ultimate dining delight. You may also consider trying yerba mate with a dish at dinner, as it is the traditional gaucho drink.

You can’t leave Argentina, let alone a meal, without trying their national desserts. The national desserts consist of dulce de leche, a sweet confection of milk jelly, and the alfajores cookie. An alfajores is a cookie sandwich filled with dulce de leche. They can be found in Spain, Peru, Argentina, Uruguay, and Southern Brazil.
