Restaurant Review: The Argentine Experience

Read our travel expert, Clara Tort’s Restaurant Review of The Argentine Experience in Buenos Aires.

When people think of Argentine cuisine, most people only think of beef. Although Argentina is famous for its outstanding quality of red meat, its national cuisine is actually a blend of indigenous and Mediterranean influences (mostly Spanish and Italian). Other regional foods are found here from the immigrants that settled here in the late 19th and early 20th century. If you’re looking for a cultural experience, where you can indulge in traditional Argentine cuisine, I recommend spending an evening at The Argentine Experience.  This is a fabulous restaurant in Buenos Aires. Read for the complete review of the Argentine Experience!


The Argentine Experience

The Argentine Experience is an interactive dinner where guests can learn about Argentinian cuisine, taste the countries unique flavors, and cook delicious dishes.  This restaurant is located in Palermo, one of the hippest neighborhoods in Buenos Aires. The hosts take you through the national food & wine culture.  While there you will enjoy a gourmet three-course meal, including the traditional steak paired with several other contrasting Argentine wines, with unlimited pours!


restaurant-review-of-the-argentine-experienceSimilar to a closed-door restaurant experience, your host at The Argentine Experience will provide you with information about Argentine culture and teach you how to make one of the country´s most popular pastries empanadas. These pastries are filled with various ingredients, such as meat, cheese, ham, and vegetables.

Alfajor Cookies

restaurant-review-of-the-argentine-experienceOn your Argentine Experience, you will make your own alfajor cookies. Alfajores are shortbread cookies with dulce de leche in the middle.  Dulce de leche is similar to caramel but more rich and flavorful.  This delicious treat is also a traditional Argentina product, a confection based on milk and sugar.  But let me warn you, you won’t be able to eat just one.

Wine Cocktail

If you are looking to start the evening a bit earlier with drinks, you can also sign up for the wine cocktail experience. During the wine cocktail hour, you will learn about different Argentine wines and the most popular grapes.   You also get to make your own wine-based cocktail, which you can enjoy while eating traditional gourmet appetizers.


Argentina Wine Tour

After your Argentine Experience in Buenos Aires, I recommend that you continue traveling to Mendoza, Argentina’s wine country.  Any wine connoisseur knows that Mendoza is famous around the world for producing some of the finest Malbec wines.  Wine from Mendoza is a classic at any Argentinean table.  Create your own customized Mendoza Wine tour through Argentina at SouthAmerica.travel.
